Caran d'Ache 849 Fountain Pen - Pink Fluo, Medium (Closeout)

There is a new addition to the famous assortment of sleek Caran d’Ache 849 ballpoint pens – new Caran d’Ache 849 Fountain Pen. With its more rounded lines, the 849 Fountain Pen reveals a unique personality and comfort. The eye-catching, energising colours draw attention to the light yet robust aluminium body of the 849 Fountain Pen. Four fluorescent colours – pink, green, yellow and orange - give the graphic lines an extra spark. The matte navy blue and black enhances the contemporary design and industrial aesthetics of these writing instruments. The varnished white brings an element of balance to this refreshing whirlwind of fun. While maintaining a 100% Swiss Made quality, the 849 Fountain Pen underlines the bold, creative spirit of Caran d’Ache.

In addition to its iconic hexagonal look, the 849 Fountain Pen highlights the talent of the master craftsmen at Caran d’Ache. Their luxury writing know-how is brought to bear on the Office Line from the Geneva-based company to create high-performance writing instruments. Thus the contemporary look of the stainless steel nib of the 849 Fountain Pen ensures smooth and precise writing. Available in 3 sizes, the nib carries the new Caran d’Ache identification, as does the button on the cap. To ensure even more comfortable use, the 849 Fountain Pen can be posted when writing. The 849 Fountain Pen offers a resolutely modern touch to this traditional writing instrument that the owner will want to take everywhere!

Each pen includes one Chromatic ink cartridge and red & white gift box. For your convenience, we’ve included a standard international converter as well.

Note: Fluorescent colors are notoriously difficult to capture with a camera, so keep in mind that the actual products may appear more vibrant than shown here.

Caran d'Ache 849 Fountain Pen - Pink Fluo, Medium (Closeout) is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Smooth writer, questionable fit and finish The Caran D'ache 849 is an interesting pen; its stainless steel nib is quite smooth and just the right amount of wet, but the fit and finish--especially with respect to the cap--is reminiscent of much cheaper pens. Without posting the cap, the pen is a touch too short for my large hands, but posting is problematic. Because of the way the cap posts, the entire length of the cap is added to the end of the pen, making it a mile long (7"). Also, it posts securely enough, but free wheels from side to side a bit much for my taste. Also, although the pen caps with a satisfying snap, it too freewheels, and I don't like that at all. It feels loose and cheap to me. I know this isn't a tremendously expensive pen, but I do feel the quality of the fit and finish to be a bit sub par. Again, it is a very nice nib though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sturdy pen and reliable writer. This was my first medium bib pen, and it was definitely a change from the extra fines that I’ve been using. The ink flow is pleasantly wet, and it hasn’t had any hard starts or issues thus far. The only downside that I’ve experienced is that posting the pen makes it very uncomfortable to use. It adds a lot of extra length and weight onto the back. Overall, it’s not an every day use for me with the medium, but it is fantastic for making a bold statement at work!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Exceeded expectations I debated getting this pen for awhile. I had mixed feelings based on some so-so reviews I had read. However, at closeout pricing, it was a no-brainer. I am very glad I decided to buy it. The nib is way smoother than I was expecting from this price point. Writes great and the nib has just a bit of softness to it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hard Starts Beautiful color to the pen. Nice and sturdy. Has hard starts no matter ink choice.
