The Bic Stic is Fine Just the Way it is, so…Why?

BAUX Pen on Kickstarter

BAUX Pen on Kickstarter

I really try hard not to tell people what they should and shouldn’t like because so many things come down to personal preference and luckily not everyone likes all of the same things or this would be a very boring world.   With that said, I have to seriously wonder about this BAUX Pen on Kickstarter that is a way to turn an .11 cent Bic Stic pen into a $11.61 pen costing 106 times its original value.  Honestly, I think they look nice because its a clean and neat looking way to spice up an otherwise boring, utilitarian pen, but still, almost $12 to write with one of the most generic pen cartridges out there?  Maybe it’s just me, but I really don’t get this one at ALL.

    I admit, I love the way they look. But that is a lot of pretty packaging for a disposable pen.

    This is the most pragmatic Kickstarter pen project yet. The barrier to entry is low, and the refills are basically free. Every swag pen becomes an endless supply of free ink. Spend 10 bucks on a pen body that lasts forever that takes a near universal refill? What is not to get?
