The choice of Snakewood on this 2015 Graf von Faber Castell Limited Edition Snakewood Rollerball originates from the year 1965, the year of the snake from which this native Latin American precious wood is used again for this glorious moment to honour Singapore’s glorious 50 years. Furthermore, Snakewood turns darker in colour and becomes so smooth to the hands after a prolong period of use due to the natural platina within the Snakewood itself.
