Deep black sanded chrome finish, radiator grill engraving, palladium-plated outlines, vivid flashes of red…

No, it’s not a racing car, but it is inspired by one: introducing the Ecridor Racing ballpoint pen from Caran d’Ache.

You have more than 100 years of design expertise at your fingertips

Caran d’Ache comes from the word ‘karandash’ that is the Russian term for ‘pencil’.

In a nod to the brand’s iconic coloured pencil design, the Ecridor has a hexagonal body.

It’s a gentle reminder that you have more than 100 years of design expertise at your fingertips.
