In 2008, the Faber-Castell collection produced the world’s most expensive pencil.
A limited edition of the Graf von Faber-Castell Perfect Pencil, the most expensive pencil is made of 240-year-old olive wood and has an endpiece and extender with built-in eraser and sharpener, all made of 18-carat white gold. The pen’s cap even features three diamonds beneath the Faber-Castell coat-of-arms.
Only ninety-nine limited edition Perfect Pencils were created. At a retail price of €9,000 (about $12,800), it truly is the world’s most expensive pencil.
