Caran d'Ache's 849 Ballpoint Pen comes with its iconic hexagonal body and takes its proprietary Goliath refill. Released in the 1960s, the 849 Ballpoint Pen and refill rose quickly in popularity due to its ability to write many pages and last longer than most other pen refills of its time. The oil-based ink writes smoothly and the click mechanism is very quiet with a uniquely satisfying lack of feedback on the knock. With its sturdy metallic yet lightweight body and reliable pen clip, this ballpoint pen is a great choice for anyone who loves a sleek modern-looking pen with a long tradition.

About Caran d'Ache:
Founded in 1915 in Geneva, Caran d'Ache was originally known as Fabrique Genevoise de Crayons, but it was rebranded to Caran d'Ache, which means pencil in Russian, in 1924. Probably most famous for their pencils and colored pencils, the company has a long history in making some of the finest writing instruments.
