Caran d'Ache Fine Pens: Handmade for Handwriting

Caran d'Ache pens are crafted in the great tradition of Swiss pen manufacturing. Caran d'Ache designs and produces exceptional products, all of which carry the famous ?Swiss made? quality label. Recognized around the world for their excellence, Caran d'Ache fountain pens and luxury writing instruments are a daring combination of expertise and aesthetics. 

Caran d'Ache Gold Pens: 18-Ct Yellow Gold or Pink Gold

Gold, the noblest of metals, brings an incomparable softness to a pen, and has inspired Caran d'Ache to design its most beautiful objects, in classical and contemporary styles. In the pure tradition of Swiss goldsmiths, craftsmen cut, decorate, engrave and polish the gold to dress each writing instrument and in so doing create real works of art. The gold they use is certified by the Federal Office of Precious Metals and carries its hallmark, as well as the personal mark of the craftsman. 

Caran d'Ache Silver Pens

Writing instruments in solid silver are controlled by the Federal Office of Precious Metals and carry its hallmark, as well as the personal mark of the craftsman. The silver used in silver-plated elements is 999.9/1000 fine. 

Caran d'Ache Pens in Rhoduim

Rhodium is a rare metal in the platinum family and is about 10 times more expensive than gold. It is extremely hard but its principal advantage is that, because it does not oxidise, it always keeps its magnificent silver sheen. Caran d'ache Swiss Pens use rhodium used with silver to preserve its beautiful appearance making their Swiss luxury writing instruments even more desirable.

Caran d'Ache Chinese Lacquer Pens

Caran d'Ache is proud to be one of the very few Western manufacturers of fine writing instruments to use this wonderful material. Blue, black or red Chinese lacquer gives a magnificient finish to the lighters and fine writing instruments in the Hexagonal and Varius collections as well as some limited edition pens. Chinese lacquer is a natural product derived from the sap of the "Tsi-Chéou" tree. The highly complex art of preparing and applying it in the manner of the great Eastern masters has inspired the craftsmen of Caran d'Ache.

Caran d'Ache Lacquer Pens

Lacquer is a precious, refined material that requires great care and attention in its application as well as its finishing. Polished repeatedly, it develops all its wonderful shine in the hands of a craftsman.

Caran d'Ache Chain Mail Pens

In its innovative use of chain mail, Caran d'Ache has made the most of this legendary material that once protected medieval knights. Its woven links of stainless steel create a very pleasant texture in the writers's hand.  Chain mail even comes in a gold plated version.

Caran d'Ache Carbon Fibre Pens

Carbon Fibre is the epitome of a modern material. Its lightness and outstanding rigidity give it an immediate appeal and Caran d'Ache uses it to create a new, high-tech interpretation of tradition. Removed from its normal enviroment of top level sports, and linked with silver-plated elements, carbon fibre brings power and strength to the Varius line.

Caran d'Ache Pens: High Standards and Rigour

The gold, silver, and rhodium used in Caran d'Ache writing instruments all conform to the regulations concerning the use of precious metals. Manufacturing tolerances are strictly respected and each pen is individually inspected before being released for sale.  Caran d'Ache only works with suppliers who meet strict conditions. All materials are carefully verified or analysed when they are received. Galvanising treatments, gold, silver, and rhodium all conform to the regulations in force under Swiss federal law on working with precious materials.
