This Special Edition Graf von Faber-Castell Perfect Pencil was built to commemorate Faber-Castell's 240 year anniversary. It comes in white gold or stainless steel. The pencil's official price tag is â‚¬9,000 (US$12,800), but you can find it (slightly) discounted on eBay. Why the hefty price tag? It's not the built-in sharpener; the writer achieves luxury status due to the 240 year old olive wood its made of and cap studded with three diamonds.
Imagine what they'll come up with for their 250th celebration!
