  1. The Caran d'Ache 849 Ballpoint was the only ballpen I ever considered buying since I got into the habit of spending large sums of money on writing instruments, almost 5 years now. Knowingly or Unknowingly I never got myself to buy the (ballpoint)pen.Around March of this year,the Fountain Pen iteration of the Ballpoint was teased, it was love at first tease and so began the constant badgering of various pen retailers regarding launch and availability,always ending in disappointment,until Pen Chalet listed it on their website(first?) (June 20th) and I wasted no time in ordering mine. In eye blee

    Caran D'ache Nib Exchange

    I bought a Caran d’Ache Varius Ebony fountain pen in January 2020. I chose an OB nib to bring some variety to my expanding collection (6 fountain pens and 3 ballpoints). However, the OB nib was not what I expected and I hardly ever used the pen. I therefore decided to do something about it, which means either to have the nib reground or exchanged. First things first, I contacted Caran d’Ache customer service for a nib exchange. I received their answer today. I can send the pen to the factory where the nib will be inspected. If it is found to be in good condition, it will be exchanged free of
  3. I've got quite a collection of mechanical pencils, most of them of the drafting-kind. But lately I've been veering off towards more all-around pencils with a solid build. Find them much more pleasurable to carry out when visiting clients or going for a sketch session outside. So I spotted this Caran d'Ache 844 pencil in bright red over on a local stationary supply chain with a sweet 30% discount. Obviously, couldn't refrain from buying it. Even thou it is basically the same design as that of the 849 ballpoint (which I also own), and the Fixpencil 3mm lead holder (also own too), I find the
  4. I have tried searching though past threads without much success so, here goes .... If the CDA 'Goliath' refills are not your thing, what refill do you use? How hard a 'hack' was it? Do Parker refills really work?Does a Pilot G2 need to have the tip diameter sanded down?Do "needlepoint" refills work?Do refills need to be 'shimmed' to fit this pen?What refill options work for you? What are the easy 'refits' and what are the best refill upgrades? TIA, Sid

    Ultra Violet - Caran D'ache

    When I got sick few years ago (virus called pens and inks), I started picking different inks. I was amazed by Caran d'Ache Color of the Earth inks. http://imageshack.com/a/img673/2926/Vi7las.jpg The thing is the inks were discontinued before I had a chance to try all of them. I was disappointed to hear Colors of the earth were replaced by Chromatics. http://imageshack.com/a/img661/4222/n8Zvpm.jpg OK, the bottle is cool, colors seem nice, so what's the problem? One - no more Amazon and Grand Canyon! I can get over Amazon, with time I started to prefer murkier greens, but Grand C

    Caran D'ache Ecridor Nib Removal

    Hi all, many years ago I gifted my father with a Caran d'Ache Ecridor, which he's probably never correctly cleaned. As expected, he's been experiencing many problems with the ink flow. He's now tasked me with fixing all his flow troubles. Anyway, I'd like to remove the nib (if possible) and thoroughly clean his pen but I've been unable to find any information regarding the removal of an Ecridor nib. Does anyone out there know how the nib is held in the feed? Is this a single unit that Caran d'Ache wants customers to replace as opposed to fix? If there are any workarounds I'd be very grateful
  8. Hi fellow (fountain) pen enthusiasts, I will be visiting Zürich, Switzerland in the foreseable future and people told me I can get Caran d'Ache pens for much better prices than in other countries. So I'm looking for a good shop in Zürich where I could go and take a look and hopefully buy some beauties. My priorities are: good prices,good acccessibility from the city center with public transport or by footgood selection of Caran d'Ache pens. I'm interested in both ballpoint and foutnian pens, depends on what budget I will be able to have. So if you know any good shops which fill some or al

    Cda Replacement Nib?

    I have a Caran D'Ache Ecridor fountain pen with medium nib - would prefer to try a fine sized nib as ink flow is a bit fast for my liking - does anyone do a third party replacement nib to fit? Can the nib be removed easily? Or do I have to buy whole replacement unit at around £57?
  10. Hi! I am new to the forum and would love to get some help identifying this Caran D'Ache fountain pen. The only thing written on it are "Swiss Made" and "gold plated "g"" Really appreciate any help! Thank you! NVR

    Turquoise Ink Turned Green

    Hi all. I was looking to see if a new ink color was close to a favorite of mine, Caribbean Sea by Caran d'Ache. I got the Sea sample bottle out and dipped in a dip pen. I wrote with the ink and it was green. So I thought maybe I'd messed up when I filled the samples and got the Amazon out to see if there was Sea ink in there. Nope. Amazon was in Amazon. So I fetched my stock bottle of Caribbean Sea and filled a clean sample bottle and dipped the dip pen in there and, voila!, green ink. The original bottle has been stored in its box on an inner wall and the sample was stored in a clos
  12. Hello pen experts. I have this fountain pen that I need your expert knowledge to help me identify with the year, model and if possible, the value. The pen's body has the engraving, "Caran D'Ache Gold Plated G" - Not sure what G means. The nib says 18C - 750 B - Not sure what 750 or B mean. The nib also has a number engraved inside above the screw 255816 - Not sure what this number is. http://i.imgur.com/ekXU4R8.jpg http://i.imgur.com/WExpnxE.jpg http://i.imgur.com/6Z3BYhX.jpg http://i.imgur.com/UwvMaJm.jpg http://i.imgur.com/cRvR3l9.jpg http://i.imgur.com/idw0v6u.jpg http:/
  13. Hi, Does anyone knows.... What is the difference between these covers (logo, without logo) Thanks.....
  14. I bought the caran d'ache 849 pen from a local store in Hong Kong. I broke the nib and I want to replace it, perhaps try a nip of different size even. However fountain pen is a rare thing here. Local store not selling replacement parts and i couldnt find any where else i could buy from. I tried the Caran d'ache official page and amazon, nobody seemed to be selling 849 fountain pen nibs, unless i buy the whole pen. Anybody knows a possible replacement for that? maybe some other third party nib that might fit in?
  15. Hello! I found a pen for sale a Caran d'ache Madison, but I can't find an exact photo of this one with the colored rings. Is it a special edition? Please help if you know. And also, a price of 60 -70 $ is ok for this pen? Thank you in advance!
  16. Greetings. I have ended up here several times via Google, so might as well join! I am a retired MD, long time user of a parker 45, which got me through med school note taking, and served until it fell from my pocket and got squashed by a car a few years back. My odyssey of refreshing old pens has led me into both coveting new (to me) pens, and to (finally) learning how to use and care for the old ones. Nice to be here!
  17. I recently received a Caran d'Ache Ecridor in guilloché. It's a beautiful pen, but unfortunately I had to send it in for maintenance due to a feed issue. I was always under the impression that these pens were palladium coated. However, the owner of the shop I brought it to seemed to suggest it was silver plated, as was written in his catalog. One of the reviews on FPN mentions it's silver plated and palladium coated, and a second look at the Caran d'Ache website lists various models in different plating. Does anyone know what metal is on the Ecridor?

    Caran D'ache Geneve

    Caran D'Ache Geneve M Review I got this pen as a present when I finished college (1990 something). It has thus a lot of sentimental value. I have rarely taken it out of the box, and I have used it only a few times, but life is short and it was time to use it. Appearance 10/10 I have the lacquer black version with gold trim. It is plain Gorgeous! The lacquer feels great and each detail is masterfully crafted. Cap is slanted at the top, with the CdA logo, and the clip has "wings" reminding me of the pilots uniforms from the 70s. The cap screws in with 1 full turn, with a rubber o-ring at

  21. Hi friends, my first post here. I've reserved the Caran d'Ache Genève 70th Anniversary Edition which I will be paying for and picking up in 2 weeks. However, I can't find much information about the pen elsewhere online so if anyone can help me out and give me their thoughts if they know anything about the pen, I'd greatly appreciate it! Here's a picture, I hope it works: https://scontent.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t35.0-12/16731942_10158176724975585_1791580179_o.jpg?oh=25d435fec280231e7d936cb15ec0b076&oe=58A26CAA
  22. It's time for another Ink Giveaway PIF! I am giving away a nearly full bottle of Caran d'Ache Turquoise Green ink. This is an older ink that is discontinued. I think Caran d'Ache renamed this ink as "Caribbean Sea" ink before it was discontinued, and it has a devoted following. Here are the rules: 1) United States only. 2) Winners of my previous PIFs (Levenger, OMAS, Rotring, J. Herbin, Montblanc inks) are not eligible for this PIF. 3) Everyone who posts on this thread saying they want the ink through Saturday, February 11, 2017 is eligible. 4) On Sunday, Februrary 12
  23. By "accident" I found few bottles of Colour of the Earth serie, Storm, Sunset, Amazon and Carbon. I am pretty sure I'll keep Amazon and Storm, still hesitating about Sunset. But what to do with the blacky-black Carbon ... Is this colour still worth to operate with (read "sell", because I don't like black ink, maximum is Sailor Doyou or GvFC Stony Grey ... or to trade for plain true flexible pen) ?

    Caran D'ache Electric Orange

    First off, I love this ink! It’s not going to be for everyone, but it is definitely for me. The color will put off a lot of people – it is orange & bright. I happen to like bright colors & if you like inks that really demand attention, it might be one to consider. There is no arguing that it is expensive. For me, the price is justified by how well it performs. I generally use EF nibs which often have a lot of feedback. But with this ink, there is almost no feedback – I can barely feel it on the page. It’s like I’m using a medium or broad nib or a lubricated ink (like one of Noo
  25. Good evening to every one of you! My name's David, 23, I love tortoises (don’t ask), and I'm from a little city called Montreux in Switzerland (maybe you've heard of one of the most famous music festival in the world, well, I work for it ). At the age of 20, I made a big step in my academic cursus and my father offered me the best congratulation gift possible: a Caran d'Ache Léman. Here's what I'm talking about: http://image.noelshack.com/minis/2016/51/1482265081-caran-d-ache-leman-open.png I fell in love at first sight. I remember opening the box, staring at the fountain pen fo
