Does one ever get tired of German craftsmanship and engineering? A Graf von Faber-Castell fountain pen is one of many high-ranking achievements in Germany's contribution to the world of writing instruments. This model is made of "Ebenholtz" (ebony wood) and sterling silver-plated trim. This preowned pen comes with its original box, papers and converter. The two-tone 18k nib writes a smooth medium line. The barrel and end cap of the pen are impeccable. The section has some scratches and nicks in the silver. The front of the cap is nice, but there is a fair amount of wear on the back of the cap: lots of scratching while it was riding in a pocket or bag. Still, to most people it will present as a beautiful pen in your hand that writes very well. 13.6cm capped.
