Two iconic Swiss brands, writing tool masters at Caran d’Ache and famed coffee brewer Nespresso, have teamed up to create the Cara d’Ache 849 Nespresso Ballpoint Pen. Sustainably designed, this limited edition ballpoint pen is innovatively crafted using the aluminum from recycled Nespresso capsules. Complementing the aluminum body is a steel tip with a rotating tungsten carbide ballpoint that prevents smudging. Extremely lightweight, the pen’s body has the brand’s signature hexagonal shape providing comfort when writing and remarkable style. Aesthetically pleasing, its unique blue “dharkan” colour is the result of a specialized process that uses microbeading blasting and electorstatic treatment to achieve its distinct tint and shine. Subtle details, including the Caran d’Ache and Nepresso names etched into the body and the push button, add elegance and character to this impressive writing tool.
Caran d'Ache has been refining the craft of pen-making for years. Founded in Geneva, Switzerland in 1915, by Arnold Schweitzer, and named after Emmanuel Poiré, a famous French illustrator, who went by the pseudonym Caran d'Ache. Harvesting natural materials from the mountains of Switzerland, Caran d'Ache writing tools are acclaimed for unparalleled quality and craftsmanship.

This pen is pricier than many of the other Caran D'ache ballpoints, but it does have a very nice finish - sort of a "powdery" texture, and the color is so rich and beautiful it stands apart from their "regular" hexagonal pens. I am very happy with the purchase.
