Merry Christmas

 Who would not want a 1960s pocket protector full of pens and pencils from the 60s for Christmas? Show up to work or school after Christmas sporting a pocket protector full of pens and pencils.
Starting on the left we have a Hasbro 6" plastic ruler. Then we have a green and blue BIC F-25s along with a red medium BIC. A ball point pen must be in the protector along with a Sheaffer School fountain pen. A BIC AF-49 Accountant Pen in blue would be required. Next would be your Scripto K780 and last is a Sterling Plastic 6" Slide Rule. What else would you need? Have a Merry Christmas.

To the right are more K780s plus T220 pens and P360 pencils plus a few others.  Bottom left are my BICs for the desk to include collector additions, Auto pens and the metal BIC pen. Last are the Cross Solos. These are not made any more but are available on EBay and can be bought for a nice price. I think I have all the colors. Add all these pens to your collection.

December New Itens

Lets start on the left with my newest Nock pen holder. This one is the Lookout and has turned out to be one of my favorite. On top is a brand new 1980s Pentel PSD5. The one I had broke so Santa came through. Next is a niece Papermate Profile and a Executive refillable Flair. Every collection should have one of these. Cross refills are required to get the Flair working. Then we have a new Parker Jotter with a Indian pattern on the barrel. This should put me at at about 51 different Parker Jotters in the collection. Next is a Hi Tec C Coleto, white with gold trim from JetPens. Last is a Kickstarter project I signed up for. Most of the Kickstarter pens that I have been getting all use a Pilot Hi Tec C refill. I like those but sometimes I would prefer a wider point. This Takumi pens fits the bill. They list 50 different refills that will work in this pen and I have found a few more. You use the wrench to screw in the back of the pen to fit short or long refills I am using a Pentel EnterGel 0.5mm refill. Add all these great items to your collection and Please have a Merry Christmas.

My Desk 2014

I still have plenty of stuff to post but I was thinking I should show my desk where all these office and school items must pass. Can I get any work done? Yes I can but it take a while to get started. There must be 300 or 400 items on my desk and it it hard to keep up with it. The picture does not show the walls full of stuff or the cabinets to the right and left of the desk. I am currently working on some animal ordinances here in Killeen so I have other things to do. I can still sit at my desk and look for that one pen or pencil that is not in it's place. Hope your desk is cleaner and add all this great stuff to your collection.

New Items


Here we have some new items in the Supply Room. Top left is a plastic pen stand that has the map of the US. I would think from the 50s or 60s. To the right is a new pencil in the Supply Room. A Kickstater item called a Stalwart Pencil. I think this is 3.5mm lead and the pencil came with four leads and a ballpoint pen. Made from Maple Burlword so each pencil will look different. It is a big lead but is is fun to use. Below left is the Ambition Field Notes that I saw over at Unposted. Last are two items I got from JetPens. The white 60th Anniversary Parker Jotter and the 80th Anniversary Rhodia notebook and pencil. All good stuff.
Here are two of the plastic pen holders I got from Office Depot as they close their doors. Check your local store and get yours.

Wearever Ball Pens

Two items to show in this picture. First is the great counter top pen display from Wearever up on the wall. Mad Men folks found this item and I put new refills in all the pens.This cardboard display was in great shape. Then other item is the Lamy and Tradio pens. They are in a new display case I got from the closing of our local Office Depot store here in Killeen. The stores were bought by Office Max and are being closed out. You should go by your local Office Depot and see what they are selling. I bought the Schneider Pen floor display to get these plastic 30 slot pen displays. There are four of these in a Schneider Pen floor display. I paid $25.00 for the stand and all I wanted was the four pen displays. Go by and get yours. Add all this great stuff to your collection.

New BIC 4 and 2 Way Pens

We are running out of space. Added four new pens to this case and it is now full. On the top row I added the short green 4 way BIC. Pastel colors just like the other green 4 ways. The first 21 pens on the top row are all 4 way BICs. Last three on the top row and the first nine BICs and the second row are 2 way BICs. Second row number 7-9 are the new BIC 2 ways in blue, pink and yellow. Don't see BIC 2 ways here in the US but they do seem to be popular overseas. There are so many BICs out there that another case may be in order. Add them all to your collection.
