The legendary 849 ballpoint pen, made eco-friendly from recycled Nespresso capsules. Packaged in recycled cardboard. No plastic. The same high quality Swiss pen that lasts a lifetime. A genuine deed for the environment.

Known as the unbreakable pen, the 849 metal pen is the iconic pen of Switzerland. The slim metal body is strong enough to withstand the most rigorous everyday use, while being slim enough to fit unobtrusively into any diary or pocket, awaiting its next task. The incredibly long lasting Goliath cartridges give the impression that this pen writes forever, far outlasting most user’s requirements to ever change a cartridge.

The precision manufacturing of the stainless steel cartridge tip ensures a smooth and consistent writing experience. No blotching, no scribbling to activate, no leaks, just smooth writing. A pen that just works when you need it, and reliably stands up to the rigors of being your everyday companion.

The 849 ballpoint pen is manufactured in Geneva, Switzerland. The Caran D’Ache name is proudly associated to Swiss heritage. Extraordinary quality control measures dominate the manufacturing process to protect the heritage and ensure that each item leaving the factory is an extraordinary product.

Care and maintenance

Tender loving care of your product will ensure that it remains in good shape for as long as possible. Even though the 849 is an extremely tough pen, it can of course be damaged by excessive mechanical force, or exposure to aggressive or corrosive chemicals.

Avoid exposure to heat, such as leaving the pen in the sun on the dashboard of a car. As with any ballpoint, this may melt the wax seal on the cartridge, causing the ink to dry up prematurely.


The 849 ballpoint pen forms part of the Caran D’Ache Office Line range, covered by a 2 year works warranty.
