Super smooth, intriguingly modern


The Faber Castell Ambition Pearwood is a beautifully crafted pen. Design-wise, it is subtly but impressively modern, with a clean and straight profile that sets it apart from the multitude of very similar-looking fountain pens on the market.

I've never owned a pen with a body made of wood like this: it is pleasing to hold, never gets too warm or sweaty, is easy to grip, looks lovely, and contrasts nicely with the polished chrome of the cap and tail. My only complaint in terms of design is the weight of the cap, which is substantial in relation to the pen and means - when capped - that it's a bit awkward to write with. This doesn't really bother me as I tend to write uncapped anyway.

The nib is simply excellent. Smooth, constant ink flow, neat line that isn't too fine.

I am very pleased with this pen, and would recommend it to anyone who wants a stylish, simple but elegant writer.

Great pen, great company


I purchased the Faber Castell Ambition fountain pen in pearwood with a fine nib for my love; I am happy to report she is very pleased with it. It writes easily and clearly, is balanced in weight whether posted or unposted, and provides good line variation with appropriate pressure. A beautiful keeper, just like her.

An excellent writing instrument and a wonderful fountain pen


Excellent in terms of writing, it is also aesthetically very attractive. I love using it. I have a several fountain pens and this Castell is among the top 3 I love writing with.

Superbly smooth nibs.


Beautiful pen!


Very nice pen! Good feeling in the hand. Nice wood inlay. I have fine nib and it feels not Scratchy at all, very smooth! I have some pens from Graf Von Faber- Castell and i have to say that you feel the difference of the quality but i have to say this is almost there!

Great pen, great service


My purchase was a Faber Castell Ambition in black with a fine nib. Faber Castell nibs are consistently the smoothest I've used, combined with just the right degree of flexibilty. This new pen is no exception, from the first few lines it's just "right", light, comfortable in the hand (I use it non-posted), and it draws a nice wet, but non-smudging line. Service from the Pen Company was excellent, it turned up within a day.

Excellent pen, excellent service


I bought the Faber Castell Ambition in pearwood with a medium nib. It is an exceptionally smooth writer. I would certainly highly recommend it to anyone looking for a good quality, comfortable to use fountain pen. Service from the Pen Company was very efficient and prompt - well done!
