The Perfect Pencil

Celebrating 25 Years of the legendary Perfect Pencil by Farber-Castell, the company is launching 3 new versions available in stores this September. Here are the reasons the Perfect Pencil caught our attention:


The Elegance
A pencil is simply graphite housed in a cylindrical case, however, the designers behind Farber-Castell have taken this concept to an extraordinary level. We all love a gorgeous writing instrument and there is something comfortably familiar about writing with a pencil, especially when this one is complete with it’s perfect circumference, comfortable grip, multi-function end cap, and secret compartments.

The Built-in Tools
Speaking of secret compartments, have you ever seen a pencil with it’s own built in sharpener? A classic characterization of the Perfect Pencil, this handy device is elegantly integrated in the cap, which also serves as a pencil extender. With the exchangeable eraser under the cap of the crown, everything is perfectly designed within a compact space, literally at your fingertips.

The Price
This is indeed your golden pencil with a perfect price to match the immaculate quality at hand. There are three new colors to choose from:

  1. In rose gold with a coating of 18ct rose gold at CHF 320.00
  2. The Black Edition with particularly resistant PVD coating made of titanium for CHF 320.00
  3. The limited anniversary edition in champagne gold with 22-carat, champagne-colored gold coating, complete with individual numbering. The clip is decorated with the signature of Charles Graf von Faber-Castell. The brown wooden box is accompanied by a certificate, which certifies the limitation to 750 pieces. Price CHF 430.00

While these limited edition items are incredibly beautiful, have no fear if this new addition of the Perfect Pencil is out of your price range. You can find everyday versions of the same well-designed pencil (with built-in sharpener) for less than CHF 5.
