The most expensive pencil - how much does it cost?
What is the perfect gift for the writer or artist in your life?
Well, maybe the "Ultimate" pen, which was presented as a limited edition of the Graf von Faber-Castell Perfect Pencil, which costs 12,800 dollars. Only ten of these pencils are made from 240-year-old olive trees and 18-carat white gold. In its design, this pen has an eraser and equipment, and currently, there are only five of these in the entire world.
This pen contains 99 different parts, but its end and an extension are made of palladium with white gold. Its cover features three famous diamonds beneath the Faber-Castell coat of arms.
