New Faber-Castell Grip 2001s

Faber-Castell Grip 2001

Spotted at a local store – Faber-Castell Grip 2001s (Grips 2001?) in black and white with grey dots.

Nice, but I am disappointed that Faber-Castell hasn’t issued a pencil with a historical theme in their 250th anniversary year.

Take a look at this Pelikan Souverän M101N reissue. It’s already getting a lot of press pre-issue. Faber-Castell has no shortage of classics in their own archives, and could easily create some similar reissues/reinterpretations.

  • Oh gosh — here I was, relatively content with my lot, and I had to click on that Pelikan link. What a pen!

  • Maybe we will see some historical themed pencils later this year – I am still hopeful.

  • Nice to see some new colours on the 2001.
    The Pelikan is really nice, I was really really thinking about buying one a few months ago, but the price held me back. It is however very cheap for a reissue – at least compared to the “Originals of their times” from the previous years.

    Matthias, the price will probably make most of us bystanders. Certainly myself. This site has some closeup photos of the gold nib and other details.

    The wood grain looks a bit different. Is it that really soft wood? The name escapes me, but it was discussed in the thread on the “Money” pencils from Musgrave I think.

  • David O.

    OK, now I know. When I described the Musgrave “money” pencil grain, Gunther thought it might be Jelutong. The pencils seem to sharpen easier than cedar based ones.

    These are decent pencils. I have a few. But would someone puhleeeze state outright that the little rubber dots smear and rub off on other pencils, erasers, and anything else they are against for a while…
