Video-Review: Caran d’Ache Ecridor (Mechanical Pencil) – Retro finish

I am still contemplating of pulling together a series on “iconic stationery objects”. By now, I would at least have a pretty good list to start with. One pen that would surely make it onto this list is the Caran d’Ache Ecridor.

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 Retro Guilloche right here is characterized by a lozenge decoration, inspired by the mechanical pencils of the 1940s and ’50s.

Let’s have a look at this mechanical pencil in an in-depth video review now.

Also, as a heads up, I will be aiming for showing you a different writing mechanism with a different type of guilloche in the future.

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 – Mechanical Pencil 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!
