Caran d'Ache Pens

About Caran d'Ache

Country: Switzerland

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.

Caran d'Ache Reviews

849
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.

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.
