Caran d’Ache Pens

The story behind Caran d’Ache is just as unique as the writing instruments produced by the company. While this Swiss manufacturer of high quality writing instruments began by producing drawing tools, pens have become a very significant part of its collection. The company was founded by Arnold Schweitzer in 1924 and it was originally called la Fabrique Suisee de Crayons Caran d’Ache.

The name Caran d’Ache was inspired by a highly regarded Russian artist of the time named Emmanuel Poire. In Russian, the name for pencil is Karandash. The word Caran d’Ache actually comes from the Turkish phrase “karat ash” which translates to black stone. This black stone is actually graphite, which is the ultimate material for drawing and writing. This black stone and the name Caran d’Ache symbolize the long standing history of written communication and art. Writing instruments are important and valuable tools for writers and artists alike. Having one with quality is essential in order to enjoy the experience of writing and to be able to use the tool for a long time. Ebay currently has these available.

Some of the collections of Caran d’Ache include Perles, Hexagonal, Varius, Madison and Ecridor. The materials used to craft these pens are of the highest quality. A Caran d’Ache pen often blurs the lines between writing instruments and fine jewelry, especially with the Perles collection. Each piece is timeless and makes a wonderful gift for any occasion.

Caran d’Ache pencils are not only committed to the traditional aspects of writing, they are also uniquely designed. Each pen is a work of art in itself and a rare treasure. Caran d’Ache pens have personalities that are unique to each model. These pens are luxurious and elegant. Aside from the gorgeous collections, there are also exceptional pieces that really take writing instruments to the next level.
