If you follow Graf von Faber-Castell on instagram, you may have noticed that they have announced a new edition that will be launched pretty soon. However, given that not everyone spends time on instagram these days, I’m happy to share Graf von Faber-Castell’s announcement with you in this article.
While other brands have been more active, it seems Graf von Faber-Castell has spent more time on development, as we haven’t seen another new release since they launched the Pen of the Year. I think a lot of pen enthusiasts were expecting to see some news coming from the German brand earlier, but as they say, better late than never. I personally am very excited to hear about the launch of a new edition and I guess I’m not the only one out there.
Now let’s get to the edition itself. As expected, Graf von Faber-Castell didn’t reveal too much of what they’re working on keeping their audience intrigued. However, they did share one piece of information about the pen with the public. Thus, we already know that the new edition will be made of walnut wood, as they reported on their social media account, “This writing instrument will feature #walnutwood, giving each piece a unique structure and surface – as individual as its owner.”
But that’s not all, looking at the profile of the pen, I think I’ve pretty much figured out what shape the pen will come in. So I would say it will have a similar silhouette to the Graf von Faber-Castell x Bentley Ebony. That’s if the profile of the pen in the photo matches the new edition, which I can’t say for sure, so it’s more of a guess.
As much as I’d like to share much more information about this edition, I’m afraid we’ll have to wait a few more days until the official launch, set for September 1st. Until then, keep an eye on our digital magazine to be the first to read about this new marvellous edition.
