Graf Von Faber-Castell Intuition Platino Wood Grenadilla Fountain Pen
With its minimalist design, the Intuition Platino Wood stands out from the crowd. No threaded joint interrupts the pure design of the Intuition Platino Ebony and Grenadilla. The gently sweeping concave contours of the grip are evidence not only of the most careful workmanship, but also offer maximum comfort when writing.
The warmth of the exotic woods is accentuated by the platinum-plated metal cap that completes the fountain pen and rollerball pen. The cap is decorated with the Graf von Faber-Castell coat of arms that can also be found on the end-cap of the propelling pencil and ballpoint pen. Due, not least, to the extra-large 18kt bicolor gold nib, which is available in seven different widths, the Intuition Platino with its exotic wood barrel is a genuine collector’s item of refined writing culture.
The style of the Intuition Platino Wood collection combines the natural and warm charisma of wood with the cool elegance of platinum-plated surfaces in a unique way. All the more remarkably is thus the finely fluted barrel as it is elegantly shaped from a single piece.
Thanks to the gently concave grip it sits comfortably between the fingers. The metal cap is graced by a metal inlay bearing the family coat of arms. The fountain pen is equipped with a practical cartridge/converter system and a new large hand-made 18kt bicolor gold nib.
- Barrel is made of a single piece of material so that no screw joint interrupts the pure shape
- Cartridge/converter system that slides gently out of the barrel on turning the end cap
- Magnum sized hand-made 2-tone 18kt gold nib with iridium tip, “run in” by hand
- Manufacturing process involves over a hundred steps, most of them carried out by hand
Due to their slow growth, the certified exotic woods are very tough and therefore time-consuming in their manufacture. The gently gently curved depression for the fingers is evidence not only of the most careful workmanship, but also offers maximum comfort when writing.
