Caran d'Ache Pens

Caran d'Ache
If you are looking for a Caran d'Ache item not listed on our website contact customer service. We are often able to get Caran d'Ache pens and inks not listed.

Caran d’Ache originated as a simple pencil maker located in Geneva, Switzerland in 1915 to over 100 years later emerging as one of the worlds recognized leaders in premier manufacturing and the only manufacturer of fine writing instruments to be located in Switzerland.

Although the Swiss are known for their technical knowledge and excellent craftsmanship and quality in its watch making industry, Caran d’Ache has extended such craftsmanship and quality to the fine writing manufacturing as well.

Arnold Schweitzer merged the original writing instrument company with the Ecridor Pencil Factory when he purchased it in 1924. Mr. Schweitzer decided to name his new company after the nickname of a French Political cartoonist, whose name originated from karandash, which is the Russian word for pencil, thus Caran d’Ache was officially formed.

Caran d’Ache continues to manufacture its products in its Geneva Switzerland workshops today.

Pen Chalet is a proud Authorized Dealer of Caran d’Ache pens, pencils and inks.

Alchemix
This pen takes the silky smooth Caran d'Ache ballpoint mechanism and the Goliath cartridge to a new level of comfort. Nicest ballpoint in the world!

It is a great looking pen with good grip. It is shiny and easily attractive pen when the people first notice it. I love the large refill that would last longer than normal ballpoint refill. the quality of it is Caran d'Ache made and it can last lifetime if it is taken care.

Gave this pen to my wife as a gift and she loves it. Very light weight and a smaller pen. She loves the way it writes. Shipping and service were great!

These are okay pens. They look like they cost more than they actually do, they write well, and they’re easy to take care of. They are surprisingly light, which leaves them feeling a little cheap. But... they’re smaller and nice enough for a beginner pen.

Swiss made excellence: superior nibs, exacting quality and craftsmanship ! I got one in every color. These nibs write like 14k nibs that cost four times as much. I'm partial to Swiss made engineering art and precision and these fountain pens measure up in every way. Superb !

I really love this pen - I got the yellow one, which pops quite a bit but is still very professional looking (so I can take it to meetings without feeling out of place). I love the way it writes - my pens need to work and write a lot and this one can - I got a converter and it holds the ink well. Love this pen!

FIRST IMPRESSIONS!

Box open (Box is nothing too extraordinary, but functional).

It IS thin.

It’s long too.

But I like that look; a sort of industrial meets traditional. Yep, looks fine so far.

7/10

APPEARANCE AND DESIGN
If you like the 849 ball point, you will like the look of its fountain pen bigger cousin.

It’s the same design – just a little wider and a little longer.

It’s still slender for a fountain pen; and I’m not yet sure how it will go for long sessions; however, it has some nice features and remains an attractive writing vehicle.
