Bic 4 Colour Ballpoint Pen
Advantages: Multiple writing ink in one pen
Disadvantages: cost can vary
I have a lot of uses for coloured pens. As a teacher I use them for marking jotters in class and homework. I use a Filofax as a planner and like to be able to see at a glance what an entry is for. I also have a daughter who can be kept happy with a pen and paper if we have to hang about. In the past I used to carry a number of pens about, which I was always losing.
The bic four colour pen meets all of these needs.
The pen has 4 bic writing inks contained within one pen. There are two choices available, the traditional red, blue black and green and the more fashion option of light blue, purple, pink and light green. I use the second option as for my uses the other colours are a bit dull. The pen casing for the fashion option comes in either pink or purple. While quite girlie colour wise, they are both easily to find if like me you leave your pens lying about.
The pen itself is relatively chunky but not so much that it interferes with your writing skills. To select a colour, there are 4 push down parts at the top of the pens, one for each colour. You just push down the one you want. You can also select no colour by pushing one half down and then releasing. This would avoid the pen marking your bag.
I find the pen very easy to write with. My handwriting it not neat and I would normally avoid a biro pen for this reason. However the fashion colours flow nicely and I find my handwriting is always legible and my hand does not suffer in extended writing.
The pens all seem to last well but I couldn't give an exact timing as I have a few on the go. The ink is very clear on white and cream paper but due to the lightness of the colours, does not work well on darker coloured paper. I have seen no evidence of any ink fading and have been using the pens for well over a year. Also as they are biro pens, there is not leakage of ink through a page.
The pen looks good and the fashion option is packaged well. It would make a nice pencil case gift.
A good functional pen that brings choice and fun to your writing tasks without compromising on the writing quality.
Summary: A good writing implement that delivers variety
