The Faber Castell Ambition pen design catches the eye immediately. One cannot fail to be impressed by its clear lines and selected materials: the black barrel made of brushed synthetic material contrasts to good effect with the nose and end piece of gleaming chrome-plated metal. All Faber Castell Ambition writing implements are fitted with a spring clip to hold them safe in a pocket. In the case of the roller-ball pen and fountain pen, the cap can be placed on the other end while writing. Further details: the roll-ball pen contains a refill with quick-drying liquid black ink, while the fountain pen uses cartridges.
