Video: How Do They Make Bic Cristals?

I’m not at all as enthusiastic about ballpoints as the announcer in this video but it is interesting to see how much work is put into making the Bic Cristal ballpoint pen.The beginning of the video paints fountain pens in a very poor light indeed.

Let the comment raging begin.

(Shoutout to Andy of Woodclinched for finding this video)

  1. I’m not saying these are better than fountain pens. I’m not even saying these are better than rollerballs. I’m just saying that for $4 a dozen, these pens are pretty smooth and reliable. Kinda like a Ticonderoga pencil; they’re solid performers for the price you pay. 😀

    Thanks for the linkage!
