In Sweden, if you go into a workplace, chances are the pens in the stationery cupboard (if they aren’t cheap promotional pens) are these blue workhorses (see above). You can find them everywhere. They really do work well. Not particularly pretty but they are so reliable.
When I showed the picture above in a Facebook group recently, someone made this comment on my post. So it is not just me and thousands of Swedes who love them…
Ballograf do produce clutch pencils as well but you don’t see them in the stationery cupboards as often. The pen is their primary product.
