Bic® Cristal®

The Bic® Cristal® is an iconic pen. Most people in the US and Europe have used this Ballpoint pen at some point.

The inexpensive, disposable Bic® Cristal® (also simply Bic pen or Biro) is reportedly the most widely sold pen in the world.[1] It was the Bic company's first product and is still synonymous with the company name. The Bic Cristal is part of the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, acknowledged for its industrial design. Its hexagonal barrel mimics that of a wooden pencil and is transparent, showing the ink level in the reservoir.
