Caran d'Ache x Nespresso 849 Ballpoint Pen - Metallic Blue - Special Edition 6.

Collaborating with Nespresso, Caran d'Ache released this new special edition of their iconic 849 Ballpoint Pen. This metallic blue pen is made from the aluminum of recycled Nespresso capsules, and the body is engraved with the phrase "A recycling story is in your hands." The pen also comes in environmentally-friendly packaging made from 100% recycled and recyclable cardboard. Its design is driven by Caran d'Ache and Nespresso's shared vision of a world in which design, sustainability and color come together to create unique, responsible products. 

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.

  • Hexagonal body made of recycled aluminum
  • Flexible clip
  • Black ink

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.
