Graf von Faber-Castell Perfect Pencil

expensive-pencilThe Graf von Faber-Castell Perfect Pencil is the top of the line in the writing instrument market.

This company, Graf von Faber-Castell, was started in Nuremberg, Germany, as an industrial company. It has been in business since 1761. In 1839, Baron Lothar von Faber made the first branded writing instrument. The Faber-Castell collection has made instruments ever since, such as pens, pencils, pencil refills and desk sets. They came out with the world's most expensive pencil in 2008. The Faber-Castell company today is headed by Count Anton Wolfgang von Faber-Castell, an eighth generation family member, who is in his 60s. He believes that pencils go beyond the use of a writing instrument, as they are an outlet for creativity.

This pencil is made out of 240-year-old olive oil wood. It comes with an endpiece, extender and built-in eraser and sharpener, made from 18-karat white gold. The pen cap has three diamonds, as well as the Faber-Castell coat of arms.

Only ninety-nine of these exclusive pencils were created, making it a highly desired collector's item. It retails for up to $20,800 per pencil.
