Caran d'Ache Ecridor Avenue mechanical pencil
Item no: CdA4.407
Inspired by Geneva's cobbled avenues, this new ecridor reflects elegance and modernity. The Caran d'Ache craftsmen were inspired by this pattern that represents both the cobbles of Geneva and the links of a watch strap. The matte finish gives this Ecridor a very contemporary look, following the aesthetics of watches to create a lasting legacy.
The fountain pen is fitted with a steel nib, available in different writing widths and can be filled with cartridges or with the supplied converter from the inkwell.
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 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. .
