OK, so since the last post, I have started to reasearch and aquire a whole stack of nice pens. By nice, I dont mean expensive, but in saying that, I have started to lash out an purchase a few of these too. So far, this one is my everyday “I love it” pen. It’s a Caran d’Ache Ecridor Silver Eclat Ball Pen.
Unfortunatley for me, being new to all this, I did not research things like refills before I brought it, However, luckily for me it uses (as I have just found out) standard Parker Refills, which means that I have already managed to aquire some lovely gel coloured gel refills and am currently writing in bright pink!
I am sure I will get bored of this soon and revert back to “Fine – Black”, but after having a look around I have decided to check out the refills issue more in the future as I enjoy the fact that you can both easily acquire Parker Refills in nearly all ink types, nib sizes and colours. I sure plan to make the most of this!!
It’s probably not the best photo, but the pen itself is LOVELY!
It is engraved with little swirls and has crystals embeded into it. It’s a solid pen, but not too weighty. It writes well too, and it does not have any of those annoying little metal clashing sounds that some pens have when you write with them. Overall, I love it and I think it was a great investment for the likes of someone like myself.
I have discovered that I an more prone to purchase retractable pens as they normally have a clip (so that you can attach them to your diary or notebook – or in my instance to the coller of my t-shirt!), as opposed to pens with lids. I find that I eaither leave the lids laying around, hence losing them, which is a pet hate! Retractables mean no lost lids, no on and off’s, just click and it;s ready to go!
