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.

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

Would buy again.

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.

Colour Name: BlackSize Name: Pack of 5
I've owned and used this design of pen for many years probably over 20 years of use, so feel compelled to share my experiences of this well known ballpoint pen.

The clear type is marketed as the “Bic Cristal”. Made by Société Bic (known mostly as Bic) based in Clichy, France. The company was founded in 1945 by Baron Marcel Bich, but their range of products is not limited to just pens and employs over 10,000 people worldwide.

It has become the iconic brand of disposable low cost ballpoint pens.
The design and shape which is hexagonal, is evidently taken from the traditional pencil shape, this improves the strength, and makes holding the pen easier with a firmer grip.

The barrel is made from thick polystyrene, and being clear shows the ink level of the pen.
In 1991, due to concerns over children swallowing pen caps (not just Bic but all makers), the caps where made with a small hole at the top, so if accidentally swallowed, it helps prevent suffocation.

The ball point itself was initially made of stainless steel, this was later changed to tungsten carbide to improve endurance and strength.

Field use:
Having used the pens for a long time in most cases I've found them to be very good with excellent reliability and a good smooth flow of ink. There are some disadvantages to the case material it is strong, but once cracked it can extend up the length of the pen. You can use adhesive tape to help prevent further cracking of the case. There have been a few pens that have leaked, but it's quite a low number and over years of use I've mostly found the product well designed and to be a good cost effective, yet decent quality ball point pen.

A simple but good quality product that never fails to impress.

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.

Bought this pen pack from BIC and it came with pens in a variety of colour. Blue, green, black and red. They are really easy to grip and comfortable. Also loved the free pen pot that came with the pens.
