Papermate Gel -Writer
I have 2 distinct memories from 1996. One was living in Georgia for the Olympics in Atlanta and the other is buying this pen. (Only one of those is true, I don't actually remember buying this pen.) But I am pretty sure this pen came out around then.
Feel free to ask, but I am not sure why I still have this pen, or why it still writes pretty well. I don't use it, it's not cherished, it just is here if I ever need a 12 year old Gel point that writes a .7ish blue line. Oh, the writing on the end of the barrel says "fine." Yeah, right"
It wasn't exactly the prettiest of pens, but it does stand out a little with the black and blue swirls.
Googling for this pen, I came up a little empty other than someone selling an ad for this exact pen (dated 1996) Let me know if you remember this one from back in the day.
Have a great weekend, the contest annoucement is coming on Monday and I think it's a fountain pen.
