Graf von Faber-Castell Pen of the Year 2018 Imperium Romanum black PVD roller
Item no: 145157
In the search for a suitable opposite number to white statuario marble we made a lucky ?nd in the Iberian peninsula, once part of the Roman empire. Nero Marquina from the Vizcaya (Biscay) region in the Basque country combines in a re?ned way a basic black colour with pronounced white veins. It harmonizes perfectly with the anthracite-grey titanium PVD coating that gives the writing instruments of the "Black Edition" an ever-changing appearance in use. The fountain pen is ?tted with a ruthenium-plated18-carat gold nib, already run in by hand, which matches perfectly the very masculine appearance of the barrel. The cap of the "Black Edition" is also adorned by an engraving of the Colosseum and a miniature Roman penny (denarius). An end-cap protects the rotary knob of the plunger mechanism of the plunger-type fountain pen.
