Bic Cristal Ball Point Pen
Advantages: writes effectively, easy to hold, long lasting, cheap
Disadvantages: none, does everything a good pen could possibly do!
Somehow at work pen's just seem to vanish into thin air...I don't know if someone is eating them, stealing them or if they can turn themselves into thin air but I can never find one when I really need it! The brand we seem to have floating around the most are these Bic cristal ball point pens.
The pen, is a slim, thin pen with vertical ridged flat edges. Being this thin I find they are easy to hold and write with. The outer casing of the pen is clear plastic, and it has a coloured circle on the end which will be red/blue/black etc matching the colour of the pen ink and the lid is also the same colour. The lid also has a really effective pointy tip and has a longer piece down the side for allowing the pen to be snugly fit into a shirt pocket and hang over the edge. The lid of the pen also fits neatly on the end of the pen when it is in use so these don't go missing, and can be replaced when finished. To be honest, if the lids are not replaced on these Bic pens, surprisingly I do not find the ink to dry out which is a bonus but it still seems better if I have all my pens with lids on.
The pens are quite durable although a few times they have been crushed quite easily from my shoe or my bottom (although my bottom really is not that big!) so these may not cope to well under pressure. The pens are a reasonable length, and when I was in uni and college I used these and found they fit in my pencil cases with ease. Bic cristal ball point pens are brilliant quality and do not leak or give me smudged fingers from ink leakage like some cheaper pens. I also find I get longer writing span with the ink in Bic pens, so when I had end of year exams, studying my law degree which required numerous 3 hour written tests in my law subject, Bic cristal ball point pens would be reliable to not run out of ink midway through being on a roll of writing about the right to remain silent lol.
Writing with these pens is easy, and it may sound weird but I find how I write with a Bic pen is really good and I can hold it comfortably and the ink and tip prints perfectly for a clear writing style. The price of Bic cristal point pens is reasonable, about 4 in a pack for a pound or so so for this value, and for great everyday/exam pens these are perfect and I'd totally recommend them!
Summary: decent pens from bic
