    Triangular grip ballpoint by Unipeco (Union Pen&Pencil Co., New York), exact idea. 1950s-1970s.


    Another go-to, mostly because it's in my favorite color (British racing green) and it's got an excellent grip due to the tapered triangular design. Super-lightweight yet substantial feeling. Takes current plastic barrel refills, though I had to ream to metal tip a bit. I have a few from this company and they did some unique designs.

    Apologies for the slightly low res.

    Telstar black ballpoint. U.S. made, 1960s I assume, have found nothing about this company.

    Same basic look as Skillcraft military issue pens but wider. Metal tip is always a nice touch. Takes modern refills.
