The anniversary edition of the Perfect Pencil is a tribute to a pencil that was already part of the product range in the middle of the 19th century – and is now the centrepiece of the Graf von Faber-Castell Collection. The anniversary model has all the characteristic features of this all-rounder – and also comes with luxurious extras that are closely linked to the history of Faber-Castell: The pencil itself is deep black and the metal parts have an anthracite-coloured PVD coating. The decorative engraving of stylised pencils on the cap, which also doubles as an extender, just like on the historic model, is a delicate reference to the company’s roots. Finally, a real jewel gleams on the top of the cap: an artistically faceted jade stone. In Far Eastern mythology, the shimmering green gemstone represents both lived tradition and a promising future – ideal for an anniversary that pays tribute to the merits of the past as well as the exciting challenges of the present.
