Welcome to The Pleasure of Writing!
To celebrate the 90th anniversary of Woolf Barnato’s famous “Blue Train” race, Graf von Faber-Castell and Bentley have created a truly unique series of writing instruments.
Betting that he could beat the “Blue Train Express” from Cannes to London, Barnato set off in his Bentley Speed 6. He drove alone and non-stop, arriving in London before the train had even reached Calais.
To commemorate this extraordinary spirit, all limited edition pens are engraved with Barnato’s signature. Referring to the year of the “Blue Train” race, the series is limited to 1,930 pieces, handmade in Germany.
