4.0 out of 5 stars The classic disposable ball point pen, 25 Jun 2014
By 
Mr Baz - See all my reviews

This review is from: Bic Cristal Medium Ballpen Pack of 5 - Color: Black
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's a pen, 24 Nov 2013

This review is from: Bic Cristal Medium Ballpen Pack of 5 - Color: Black
What can you say about a Bic? As always, the Bic is nicely made and no doubt will cover many miles of paper before they need replacing. Can't really fault them.

5.0 out of 5 stars VERY GOOD, 1 Oct 2013

This review is from: Bic Cristal Medium Ballpen Pack of 5 - Color: Black
Good Seller. Fast delivery. The pens themselves last a long, long time and don't go 'blotchy'. Have used Bic Cristal Ballpen for years and they are the best I've used.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Hardy Bic, 20 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bic Cristal Medium Ballpen Pack of 5 - Color: Black
Not much can be said about bics. Cheap, sturdy, reliable and long lasting pens. Arrived 'as is' in an envelope, but delivery was prompt and overall very satisfied with this purchase. Once ten a penny, these pens are surprisingly becoming more expensive in stationery shops, so happy with the price here.
