Hello,
we have just received 1 picture about the next release of Caran d'Ache.
After the "Year of The Dragon" now, in 2013, it's the turn of the "Year of The Snake"; only 888 pieces for the fountain pen and 888 for the rollerball (no ballpen).
It hasn't yet been released but it should happen in the next month.


That's it for now :thumbup:

Nice pen, pretty series, and quite usable to write with. (unlike some monstrous LEs)

But I think you should post this in the general "writing instruments" subforum as it is not an Italian pen. (or in Market Watch if you want to offer it for sale)

Hello RMN,
thank you for your reply; i agree with you it seems a nice pen.

I was looking for a "Caran d'Ache" dedicated forum and i asked to a Moderator (i didint know where to post this info) and he told me that "Penne Stilografiche della Bella Italia" it's the more appropriate choice for Caran d'Ache.
Aniway, thanks for suggestion :thumbup:

Well, I imagine the decision was based on the location of Geneva and that there is no general Swiss, French or German sub-forums.

Hi, RMN:

I like your quotations, but I have a few suggestions on how to improve them.

How about the following: "You are severely handicapped if you insist on spelling a word only one way"; or, "A person who refuses to spell a word more than one way is severely handicapped"; or, "It is a handicap to spell a word only one way"; or, "To spell a word only one way is to handicap yourself"; or, "People who spell a word only one way, handicap themselves"; or, "To spell a word only one way is to handicap yourself; what's more, it's stewpid"; or, "To handicap yourself by spelling a word only one way is stewpid"; or, perhaps best of all, "To spell a word only one way is stewpid." I could go on and on, but I won't.

The only change I would I would make to your other quotation ("The last pen I bought . . ..") would be to add the word "fountain" to "pen." That's entirely up to you, however.

Rite on,

Don

Hi Don

I can't quite follow your chain of thought here. What do you try to explain here?

We have just received some info about the price; officially it will be 2500 euro for Fountain Pen and 2250 for Rollerball.
As expected it's the same price of the Year of the Dragon.

Hi, D.ick:

Sorry for the confusion. My reply was to have gone to member jar, but it didn't. Jar has three quotations at the end of his box, and I was simply suggesting some improvements for them.

I came upon this thread by searching for details about this pen, because I looked at one in my local papeterie today.

I don't think the concept of Italian Fountain Pen includes in any way pens that are made in countries geographically adjacent to Italy.

Geneva - where Caran d'Ache is located - is definitely not in Italy.

A fascinating pen to look at in real life, anyway. But not quite as spectacular as the Year of the Dragon edition.

Beautiful pen! Would love to see one in person. I think Caran d'Ache is about on par with GvFC.
