Caran d'Ache Ecridor Racing ballpoint pen
Item no: 890_009
For the first time, Caran d'Ache presents the Ecridor ballpoint pen in a completely matt look. The Ecridor Racing is completely matt black coated and equipped with a special guilloche inspired by motifs from racing, such as racing tires and a radiator grill. Fine, hand-applied, red lacquer stripes represent the brake lights.
The Ecridor models are characterized by being fractionally shorter than with comparable ballpoint pens, in addition, this pen is characterized by the smooth and comfortable push mechanism, (the most other ballpoint pens in this price range have a twist mechanism).
One of the most important pens in the history of Caran d'Ache is the Ecridor 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 continuation 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. .
