Thanks to their slim silhouette, the pens and pencils in the Intuition and Intuition Terra series have become genuine collectors’ items. Made of superior synthetic material, their gleaming polish gives them an unusual aura and conveys a unique feel in use. The fountain pen won the 2010 ‘red dot’ design award for that reason. The portfolio has now been extended to include the Intuition Platino series.
Elegant as ever, but with a somewhat thicker barrel, Intuition shows what it can do. Each formed from a single piece, no screw thread interrupts the purist lines, while the gently curved finger grip makes them extremely comfortable to hold. In the case of the fountain pen and rollerball pen, the intense black is effectively accentuated by the platinum-plated metal cap. That in turn is crowned by a polished black inlay depicting the Faber-Castell crest. The characteristic trumpet shape of these writing implements, the finely ribbed end caps and the spring-loaded clip are familiar to all who appreciate the writing culture embodied in the Graf von Faber-Castell brand.
The mechanical pencil uses 0.7mm leads.
In 1761, Kaspar Faber started to produce pencils in Stein, near Nuremberg. When the fourth generation,Baron Lothar von Faber, took over the company in 1839 he turned the pencil into a true quality product and the world's first branded writing instrument. Over the centuries, he and his descendants created remarkable products. The result is the Graf von Faber-Castell Collection, a range of extraordinary writing instruments and accessories. They embody "Luxury in Simplicity" by combining selected materials, functionality and superb aesthetics.
