Stylish desk duo: Grip Edition in Rose Copper and Anthracite

Even in the age of the keyboard and the touch screen, handwriting is by no means a thing of the past, on the contrary – it’s as popular as ever. With the new Grip Edition in two shades that are both popular and classic, Faber-Castell now presents new writing instruments that are sure to become favourites.

Whether in the office or at home – we work digitally everywhere, and the trend is rising. But being constantly connected and online gives rise to a growing need to balance things out with non-computer-based activities. This also includes writing by hand. Why? Because handwriting is a tool for thinking. And it is also extremely popular because it makes a crucial difference: when we write something by hand, we express our special appreciation and give messages a personal touch. All the more reason to choose writing instruments that support our creative processes, aid our flow of thought – and are genuine visual highlights in themselves.

One such stylish range is this year’s Grip Edition in Rose Copper and Anthracite, which scores with its chic design. The Grip fountain pen and Grip ballpoint pen with matt surface and robust, stainless steel clip add an elegant touch to your desk, in two popular shades: the warm, metallic rose copper matches the on-trend interior look and has a purist partner at its side in anthracite, which makes the trend colour gleam all the more lustrously.

The two writing instruments not only look good, however, but they also lie comfortably in the hand. The characteristic, ergonomic soft-grip zone as well as the sophisticated ink/nib combination, which allows the pen to glide effortlessly across the page, make for special writing comfort. Visual highlight of the edition: for both colour options, the stainless steel nib, available in widths EF, F, M and B, comes in deep black to provide an effective contrast. The ballpoint pen comes with a large capacity, refillable XB permanent ink cartridge so you can write more with fewer refills.

Like writing, giving is always in season. The Grip Edition has the potential to become your new favourite companion and is therefore also a great gift idea, with suitable packaging provided: both pens are available as a duo in a chic metal case, which comes in matching colours of rose copper and anthracite.
