Lemon wood (Satin)
The outer layer of the barrel is made of carefully selected Indian satinwood. It's the same precious wood which panels the Lemon Room, Countess Ottilie’s private salon in the Faber-Castell castle, with a herringbone pattern which inspired the fountain pen barrel's design.

The world's smallest parquet
No fewer than 84 rectangles have to be individually hand-made for the filigree herringbone pattern of the satinwood fountain pen.
Crafted with the utmost precision, the Pen of the Year 2008 combines elegant looks, an inimitable feel, and excellent writing qualities. The interplay that develops between the warmly shimmering satinwood tones and the cool platinum-plated metal parts is as impressive for its fine detail as for its brilliant overall impression.
The fountain pen is piston filled. 18 Kt nib, F M, B.
