BIC pen with 3 colors of ink pens and a mechanical pencil built in

I love writing with BIC pens – the ink flows smoothly and evenly, and their blue ink is my favorite.  There’s only one problem.  The normal, clear-body pens are too thin for me to hold comfortably.  When I discovered those thick barrel 4-color multi-pens from BIC, I was in love.  They were comfortable to hold, …

ACME Studios Eco Pen doesn’t add to the landfill

I like using those clear barrel disposable pens.  They’re cheap, and you can always keep several around in case you misplace one, but the downside is that the plastic barrel is going to hang around in a landfill for a long time.  ACME Studios has developed some plastic barrel pens that will break down in …
