Ballpoint Pens

Ballpoint Pens

Ballpoints are pens with a rolling ball mechanism that transfers oil based ink from a cartridge. They’re the most widespread writing instrument with the first commercial product being invented by the Hungarian Biro brothers who developed a special quick drying ink for use within a ball-point mechanism. 

Ballpoints have developed out of all recognition from the first ‘Bic Biros’, and manufacturers have developed a huge range and some very stylish designs. An interesting fact is that ballpoints were very popular among pilots in World War II due to the fact they did not leak at high altitudes!
