The fine wood varieties used in the Graf von Faber-Castell Collection are extremely robust. Their natural variations in color nuances and structure ensure that each wiring instrument is unique. Wood becomes even more attractive through use, and develops into an individual item that bears the "signature" of its owner. 


The writing instruments are varnished with natural wax to protect them from soiling, e.g. from sweat on hands. You will notice however, as you work with the instrument over time - the wood will begin to slightly change in color. 


There will not be another like it.
