Unic was one of the major mainstream manufacturers of fountain pens in France for many years. Many hours of searching corporate historical information yielded very little, including a “wayback” listing that described the company (in French) as venerable but little documented. It was organized just after World War I, was a steady producer of decent fountain pens in predictable styling until after WWII. They did produce some decorative models, but never were style leaders. With other firms, Unic closed in the 1960s. Research has not shown a link between the pen manufacturer and the other Unics, most famously the truck brand that later became Iveco.
