Grof Von Faber Castell Fountain Pen Intuition Platino Black Fluted
It is particularly satisfying to be able to feel the quality of an object. The pure black color, polished to a high gloss, conveys a deep intensity. The finely fluted barrel is made of a single piece of material so that no screw joint interrupts the elegant and pure shape.
The style is unmistakable: the trumpet shape, the fine fluting and the springloaded clip are familiar features to all who appreciate the fine art of writing by Graf von Faber-Castell. The words “hand made in Germany” are engraved in the platinum-plated ring that decorates the open end of the cap.
- Barrel is made of a single piece of material so that no screw joint interrupts the pure shape

The finely ribbed end piece and the spring-loaded clip are characteristic of this series and familiar to all those who value the quality pens and pencils in the Graf von Faber-Castell Collection. The writing implements are available with a smooth or with a finely fluted barrel. Intuition “Ivory” and “Terra” offer colored alternatives to the pure black.
