Video-Review: Caran d’Ache Ecridor (Ballpoint Pen) – Hypnose finish

A while ago I have reviewed the Caran d’Ache Ecridor mechanical pencil – back then in the “Retro finish”. Ever since, I was eager to review an Ecridor in some of the other guilloche-finishes that are available, as they all very unique and quite intriguing.

Today, I am happy to be able to bring to you an Ecridor ballpoint pen, combining a new writing mechanism with a new engraving pattern: the “Hypnose”.

The Geneva Manufacture-made Ecridor has been incepted in the 1930s, which speaks to its long history and tradition. Made in Switzerland, with international lifetime guarantee, each of the Ecridor-series comes with a different guilloche-pattern – and this “Hypnose” Guilloche right here is characterized by infinitely intertwining curves, resembling the spirals that occur when pen manufacturers are testing ink cartridges and nibs on paper.

Before we hop into the review, I would like to take the opportunity to thank Fontoplumo for supporting the review of this stationery item. You can also buy the Caran d’Ache Ecridor pens in their webshop (no affiliate – just a friendly pointer).

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!
