Type Fountain pen
Product Name 849 is what Caran d'Ache calls this pen.
Manufacturer and Year Caran d'Ache, Switzerland. This model is still available.
Filling System Takes international style cartridges and converters.
Color "Fluo Purple" is what the company calls it, but to our eyes it's NEON PINK lacquer over an aluminum body. (The color is loud enough to justify the shouty caps!) Black plastic section and chrome end pieces. Shiny chrome trim.
Nib EXTRA-FINE steel nib.
Condition Excellent + condition with no cracks, chips, dents, or dings. The original UPC sticker is still affixed to the end of the barrel. This is a long, shiny, faceted pen in a bright, eye-catching color. The cap has light scratching. The clip and clip ring have some small smudges. The imprints are clear.
