Graf Von Faber Castell pen of the year 2021 Knights fountain pen
The Pen of the Year 2021 is inspired by medieval knights, their heroes, myths and legends. In those days, the strongest prevailed, therefore skilful sword fighting and the nature of his weapons played a central role in a knight’s life. To forge the knightly swords medieval smiths used Damascus steel, which was regarded as particularly hard while being flexible. Its extraordinary properties are achieved through repeated welding and folding of different types of steel, which also produces the typical iridescent surface. It is thanks to this feature that every one of the 375 fountain pens in this limited Pen of the Year edition is truly unique.
