Today, many of us are using computer correspondence on emails, mobile technology from Ipads and Iphones.  Many words are digital rather than hand written using our brain and the pen.

Montegrappa Brain pen – an extension of our emotional responses.

Archivst Howard Besser has cited “The default position of paper is persistence if not interrupted; the default condition of electronic signals is interrruption, if not periodically renewed.”

According to a classic paper, Ëffects of Mode of Writing on Emotional Narratives,” the experience and expression of emotion is facilitated by handwriting but not by typing.  It was also found that writing by longhand wrote more words, spent more time writing and reported significantly more disclosure than those in the typing condition.

Graf von Faber-Castell Limited Edition Jade Pen – Why You Must Buy This Jade Pen?

Graf Von Faber Castell Limited Edition Jade Pen Of The Year 2011

For centuries, Asians have loved Jade not only because of its beauty but it is also well loved for its aural of luck and prosperity.
Jade Gemstone
Siberia Jade

In the vague memory of pens being produced·of jade material, there was a pen made by Montblanc around year 2000 of an Imperial Jade Dragon.· Only that ·the cap·was ·made of jade while the barrel·was made of precious resins.

 

For some good reasons, I think the Jade pen from Graf Von Faber Castell Limited Edition is going to be the best pen to collect and buy·for the following reasons:

1.· The usual quantity being made is around 2,000 to 2,500 for this annual collection.· The collection this year is only 1,761 (it was pre-determined) just because it is the year when Graf Von Faber- Castell was established.· A perfect excuse for the pen price to be higher than normal, in addition to it· being made of precious jade.
2.   The quantity is pre-determined and unlike previous years of which the quantity is not known to public.
3.  Jade, being a living material in the Asian thinking, is going to be well like and this pen is made by Faberge, an exclusive jeweller.  A lot of China play here.
4.  A good gift to give away to Chinese friends or important persons who valued jade – if you do not like it.
Hence, it cannot be very wrong either way.
Graf Von Faber Castell Limited Edition continued to make Simplicity Is A Luxury, true to its motto.
