Caran d’Ache 849 – Fountain Pen Review

There are a few iconic stationery objects out there that literally are in the stationery history books. The Lamy Safari/Al-Star fountain pen or the Blackwing 602 pencil are only two examples. The Caran d’Ache 849 ballpoint pen surely also is one such icon – so the recent step of Cd’A to make this pen also available as a fountain pen makes a whole lot of sense and I expect this pen to become a fairly popular model, especially since it is quite attractively priced.

Having that said, it was a no-brainer to me that I had to get my hands on one of these for a review. And here we are.

Before we hop into the review, I would like to take the opportunity to thank Fontoplumo for supporting the review of this pen. You can also buy the Caran d’Ache 849 at their webshop (no affiliate-link).

But now, check out the video-review below, which is as always preceded by some quick facts. Again, I hope the review is helpful and that you enjoy watching it!
