Societe Bic is a company founded in 1945 by Marcel Bich in Clichy France and is known for manufacturing disposable lighters, ballpoint pens, magnets and razors. The Bic pens are quite affordable and quite reliable for its price. In fact in early September 2005, Bic sold its 100 billionth disposable ballpoint, making it the world's best-selling pen. The pens has a slogan "Writes first time, every time." It comes in red, balck and blue.
What I like about the pen is the reliability. It is unlike some pens that dry up quickly or has the ball point damaged easily which renders the pen useless. The Bic also has a nice handle to prevent your fingers from getting callouses. A dozen of these pens cost on $2.10 at Costco which is less than 18 cents a piece. The only knock on the pens is that they have a tendency to blot. Well there's nothing much to expect at such a cheap price anyway.
