    Do you realize how long Skilcraft pens have been around? At least (I believe) the stuff is made in USA. Used to be (and probably still is) made by National Industries for the Blind.

    They come in blue or black ink and work. What else do you need?

    I had another poster tell me I needed to lighten up a bit. I couldn't pass up a little history lesson. I know nobody really cares but probably very few folks know the history of NIB.

    I'll take your word for it....... But, I'm curious... How do they know they work? If they can't even see it, when they write?

    I have to admit I don't know all the inner workings of NIB. Folks can be legally blind but yet still have some vision. I'm sure there is a lot of supervision/QC, etc. by those with normal eyesight.
