For Pete’s sake: they’re ballpoint pens. Calm down, people, and reattach your heads to the appropriate bodies.
I think of “two-tone” as a phrasal adjective followed by a car. Two-tone cars looked spiffy, at least in my faint childhood remembering. These “tu-tone” pens, not so much. They remind me of the cheap ballpoints dispensed by auto-repair shops and insurance agents. Contrast Parker Jotters of the same era: they still look like great.
The young man on my right — calm down, young man. Young man, I don’t want to have to repeat myself.
