Everyday objects: The biro pen top

Pen Cap.  Canon S120
24th October 2015

There are many items around the house which we just take for granted.

There are also some which are instantly recognisable and an 'iconic' design.

The pen cap off the humble Bic Biro is one of those designs that everyone worldwide probably recognises.

This model is a relatively modern design; sadly I am old enough to remember the days before they put a hole in the end of the cap to help stop young children from choking (it was a good idea to add the hole).
