Homage to a Legend

The “Blue Train Race” is embedded in Bentley’s history alongside ‘Bentley Boy’ Woolf Barnato. 90 years on, in partnership with Bentley, Graf von Faber-Castell have created an exquisite set of writing instruments in tribute to this race and to Barnato himself.

The Inspiration

One of the original Bentley Boys, Woolf Barnato was a three-time Le Mans winner, and also Managing Director of Bentley Motors from 1926-1931. He often proudly told the story of the “Blue Train Race”, in which he made a bet that he could reach London from Cannes in his Bentley Speed Six before the Le Train Bleu made it from Cannes to Calais. Barnato’s claim that he could beat it with his  Bentley was bold, but the bet paid off and he succeeded in style with just minutes to spare.

This legendary tale and Barnato’s confident spirit inspired Graf von Faber-Castell’s latest collection of limited edition pens for Bentley. Created from the finest materials and assembled by master craftsmen, these elegant writing instruments are built for performance on paper.

The Design

Each writing instrument within the new limited edition series features a lacquered metal barrel in the characteristic dark racing green that is often associated with Barnato, whilst the chrome-plated front and end sections gleam in a dark green glaze. The barrel is carefully hand-guilloched in the signature diamond pattern that forms a strong part of Bentley’s design language. The cap is adorned with the iconic Bentley B, Bentley-style knurling and Woolf Barnato’s original, handwritten signature as a reminder of the extraordinary spirit that lives on at Bentley today. 

The series is limited to just 1,930 pieces to honour the year of the famous “Blue Train” Race in 1930, and the edition number is engraved on the threaded ring of each pen.

The Collection

Bentley and Graf von Faber-Castell have been in partnership since 2018 sharing a passion for unrivalled craftsmanship and unmistakeable design. Embodying the relationship between the brands, there are three collections of writing instruments and accessories combining the iconic Bentley brand with the timeless expertise of Graf von Faber-Castell.

The Limited Edition Barnato series includes a Rollerball, Fountain and Ballpoint pen. The Fountain pen features a high-quality stainless steel nib in size M and with a cartridge converter system; the Rollerball pen with precision point that glides smoothly over the paper; and the Ballpoint pen equipped with a large capacity refill in standard size.
