Product Description

The BIC Cristal Medium 1.0mm ball pen is part of the Cristal pens range, and is known around the world as a simple, high-quality writing pen for everyday use in the home, school or office. BIC has been producing simple, innovative and reliable products for over 60 years. The years of research and design BIC has undertaken in developing its stationery range means these products consistently impress customers with their usability, writing performance and colour. Yet BIC is continually re-evaluating and optimising the designs, materials and quality control used so it can continue developing products which make customers' lives easier. Since 1950, BIC has sold 100 billion ball pens. The hole in the barrel equalizes the pressure inside the pen to prevent leakage. Each cap is ventilated to minimize risks, in compliance with applicable standards. With a BIC Cristal ball pen, you can write up to 2 kilometres, up to two times more than other usual ball pens. That’s 97 exam papers, 986 Sudoku puzzles or 9431 signatures according to an independent scientific research conducted by the University of Reading in 2010.

The pens arrived quickly however they were not in a BIC pack or clear bag as described. Also, the pens are very lightweight and have sharp edges so they do not seem to be of the same quality of our other BIC pens, leaving us wondering if these are fakes? We have tried a couple of the and thankfully they do seem to work ok but they really don't feel so comfortable in the hand and the plastic feels so cheap compared to regular BIC pens, therefore unfortunately we would not purchase again from this seller as we feel we may have been mislead on this occasion.

You're not getting the product displayed. You're getting 10 loose biros in a brown envelope. If I knew this I wouldn't have purchased. Very misleading. 1 Star.

Leaves a black line when in contact with paper, and some other substrates, like card or skin.

Would buy again.

I believe these pens are not genuine Bic, they came loose in an envelope, the plastic is much thinner and lighter than a normal Bic pen and the word 'medium' is not on the side of the pen like it is from on a genuine pen. They do write as normal just the build quality is bad.

I bought these pens because I believed that they were original BIC pens. As they were nicely advertised on this page, pictured in original yellow packaging, I was confident that I had made the right purchase.

When these pens did arrive at my door, it surprised me how they weren't packaged at all... In other words, they were just placed inside a bubble envelope without their original yellow packaging. At first, I thought nothing of it. To me the issue wasn't such a big deal until I realised how woefully rubbish the pens were.

I'm no expert in the field of pens, but it only took a couple of days for that 'eureka' moment to arise - as I suddenly noticed that each and every pen that I was given had leakage problems. They all stained my hands, and made my written work look awful - as my fingers had smudged leaking ink all over my notes.

If you're looking for high quality BIC pens, I'd suggest you avoid this page like the plague - unless you enjoy taking baths in ink. If these are real BIC pens - then I certainly won't be buying any BIC pens in the future.

They were sent to me in an envelope, without the yellow packaging that is shown in the picture, they were all scratched and had obviously been used before, as the pen nibs were all crusty with ink and were half full... But for £2.15, i guess i can't really expect any better.

I remember when gel rollers came on the market, and everyone ooh'ed and ah'ed at how brilliant they were, coming in more colours than the old red, blue, green and black that you were usually consigned to for biros; flowing more easily, having a more even line and colour. I wasn't impressed, however. They may flow better, the line is even, well-coloured – and completely characterless compared to an old Bic. Not to mention that they are very expensive in comparison, too.

I've tried luxury ballpoint pens, even one in gold, not so much for the gold, but the actual ballpoint and ink it came with was amazing. The refills you got in the shop were absolutely awful, though, so I had to stop using it.

The only brand of pens I have been consistently happy with has also been one of the cheapest ones: Bic. These are the basic, simple, no-frills ballpoint pens that simply just work. Nothing fancy. No decorative and expensive handle with exotic hardwoods or noble metals. No gift cases of gold-embossed hardwoods. No personal name engraving service available at "no extra cost".

Just a simple ballpoint pen that really works. That's how I like it. The line can be varied with pressure from a feather-light and thin stroke to a thicker full line. It adds a lot of personality and character to both letters and drawings.

My son and daughter go through these black bic pens like anything as one is doing GCSE's and the other A levels. I had to buy a 5 pack everytime i went to the supermarket and they're quite expensive so this box of 50 were very reasonable and free delivery too! Should last them a while i hope.
