The VI-VIC Ballpoint Pen in black is the cousin to the NO-NOC Mechanical Pencil and has the same well-thought out design that keeps the user in mind. Both stylish and practical, it is the ideal ballpoint pen to use at your desk or on the go.
It has a ridged grip section but smooth metal barrel that tapers in the middle and widens at each end for comfortable use. It also features a metal clip and push-button mechanism at one end, while the tip is finished in a matte black. The VI-VIC is available in a range of colours and can be refilled with the OHTO VI-VIC Ballpoint Pen Refill.
OHTO was established in Tokyo, Japan in 1929 and began manufacturing high quality dyes & inks. The company has a long history of ink manufacturing as the founder of OHTO, Nakata Tozaburo, worked for the ministry of finance and invented a special ink for Japanese banknotes. Mr. Nakata went on to develop the first ballpoint pen manufactured in Japan in 1949. After the success of their 'Auto-Sharp' ballpoint pen, OHTO went on to design and manufacture the world's first rollerball pen in 1964.
The OHTO range now includes the original ballpoint and rollerball pens, as well as a range of writing instruments that suit your every need, from mechanical pencils to graphic liner pens, plus ceramic rollerballs, fountain pens and multi-function pens. OHTO continue to expand on their almost 100-year history of ink & writing instrument production by designing and developing new innovative products.
