In 1887 a man named Niroku Masaki started a small company making pencils in Tokyo. Almost 100 years later in 1979 the first uni-ball rollerball pen was created. The quality and writing performance made it an instant hit in Japan and America. Fast-forward another 15 years to 1994 and the Eye rollerball that uni-ball is now known for was created. Since then it’s popularity has continued to grow, making it one of the world’s most popular rollerball pens.
For over a Century, uni-ball has been a global leader in providing innovative writing instruments with superior functionality and affordability. Inspiring creativity and connection, uni-ball products deliver unique solutions that enrich the lives of their customers.
