Caran d'Ache Ecridor Chevron mechanical pencil
Item no: 004286
The Chevron version is probably the most famous version in the Ecridor series and is characterized by an engraving in the form of an inverted V. This roller is available in silver plated, protected with a layer of rhodium to keep the pen its shine or completely gold plated. At the top of the cap, there is a space of 12 mm for a possible (short) engraving. One of the most important pens in Caran d'Ache's history is the Ecridor fashion model. The name "Ecridor" comes from the pencil factory (founded in 1915) that Arnold Schweitzer, the founder of Caran d'Ache, bought in 1924, located in the heart of Geneva. In 1929, Carl Schmid invented one of the first mechanical pencils, the "Fixpencil," a name registered as a trademark by Caran d'Ache. A few years later, the first hexagonal Ecridor mechanical pencils made their debut. In 1953 the logical follow-up was a matching ballpoint pen. Over the decades, this Ecridor model has more than proven itself. This is thanks to the sophisticated hexagonal shape that makes the pens lie perfectly in the hand and the Caran d'Ache ballpoint refill (Goliath), a refill that is among the best in the world, guarantees at least 600 flawlessly written A4 fours .
