Caran d'Ache Pens

Caran d'Ache
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.

Customer Reviews

849 Special Edition
I love this Black Code 849 Special Edition pen made by Caran d'Ache. i have few of 849 pens and love them due to very highly rated ballpoint refills. Those 849 pens have various colors on the surfaces and they are based on original pens that Caran d'Ache has produced. This pen is collectible and I strongly recommend you to purchase any 849 pen. You do my favor by putting this 849 pen into test writing on any paper. Grip on it will feel different at first but you will get used.

Excellent ball point pen with beautiful purple color. I strongly recommend it to anyone who collects the ball point pens. Caran d'Ache has produced some unique collectible pens in past and it still produce some of them in new coat or color.

849 Paul Smith Edition 3
I bought this as a gift for a friend who doesn't use fountain pens. I wanted something to match a crazy horse green TN I bought her but didn't want to do matchy-matchy. This pen was perfect for her Travelers Notebook with all the lovely colors the pen. The very last color near the ballpoint and the box I chose matched her TN perfectly. I'm very happy with the colors and she says it is a smooth writing ballpoint pen.

This is the perfect flourescant green color, not too yellow. I ordered the extra fine nib, and it is really extra fine! My nib writes both tiny and smoothly, almost like a needlepoint gel pen with a smidge of line variation. I love it. The schmidt standard converter fits the pen nicely and the slim section is comfortable. I can happily write and draw with this pen.

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.

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.
