I have been a user of Caran D’Ache ballpoint pens since I was 16 years old. This is more than 20 years. Fact.
Most of the pens I own are from their Ecridor Range which costs around 110E for a ball point here. However, they have an entry level range Office line with a large number of options in the 849 line. They are the same shape as the Ecridors – hexagonal – but are constructed from lighter materials.
I own a few of them.
A recent addition to the Popline colour range in the office line is turquoise and as it’s my favourite colour. You can see all the 849 options here. The 849 range of ballpoints all take the Goliath refill which has a very long life (speaking from experience here).
You can tell the pen is lighter than the Ecridor pens but it is beautifully balanced in my hand. I love the colour. I love the fact that the pen feels almost indestructable. And it writes like a dream.
I love it.
