Caran d'Ache 849 Fountain Pen - White, Fine

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.

Caran d'Ache 849 Fountain Pen - White, Fine is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Pen that compliments the ball point I received my 849 this morning, first let me say that the packaging was GREAT (as usual from Goulet Pens). The pen is a nice writer, somewhat stiff nib, but smooth. It seems to have a slightly broader line than a true Fine nib, more like a F-Medium, but that may be the new ink I'm trying in it. When posted, the pen is too long for my liking, so will have to use it un-posted. Overall a very nice middle of the road pen, and a good value for the money.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Unfortunately dissapointing I have been a big fan of the Caran d'Ache 849 Ballpoint pens for a long time and have been looking forward to the Fountain Pen assuming I would be just as pleased. Unfortunately my expectations were too high and I was sadly let down. The fountain pen lacks the refinement of the ballpoint pen. The ballpoint at $20, and thinner, feels more substantial in the hand. The aluminum body feels unexpectedly light on the fountain pen. Additionally, although the cap may be posted, it is too long and tips the balance too far back for the already light pen. I've got the fine nib and find it overly scratchy, but ink flow as expected for a fine nib. Ultimately, I find that it is a big let down from my high expectations coming from Caran d'Ache 849 Ballpoint pen. At the current price point of $52, I find there are plenty of other pens that I would prefer and recommend over this.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Pen, could be better Bought this pen about a month ago, nib is fairly stiff and writes more like a medium, but flows very well and is very stylish ( I really do like the look of this pen, very sleek). When I post the cap, it isn't a firm fit and it wobbles around, very annoying so I always use it unposted. Fairly good pen for the price, but there are many pens I could list that are better and cheaper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this pen. This writes great but not for those with larger hands. I have several in different colors.
