Ballpoint Pen

If you are looking for a straight-forward, no nonsense pen, then you can't go wrong with a ballpoint pen. A ballpoint pen, also known as a "biro" and "ball pen", is a pen that dispenses ink over a metal ball at its point. The metal commonly used is steel, brass, or tungsten carbide. It was conceived and developed as a cleaner and more reliable alternative to quill and fountain pens, and it is now the world's most-used writing instrument.

Ballpoint pens are produced in both disposable and refillable models. Refills allow for the entire internal ink reservoir, including a ballpoint and socket, to be replaced. Such characteristics are usually associated with the pens constructed of finer materials. The simplest types of ballpoint pens are disposable and have a cap to cover the tip when the pen is not in use, or a mechanism for retracting the tip, which varies between manufacturers but is usually a spring or screw-mechanism.
