New Pencils

Time to catch up on my new pencils. On the left is a very nice set of four Pentel Sharplet-5 A125T pencils. Don't know if these are new or not but they are very nice pencils that will see some use. Next is a Pentel Mark Sheet Sharp1.3 Am13. This one came from JetPens. Next is another one from JetPens a Orenz 0.2mm PP502. This one is only for the collection because it is just to small a lead size for me to use. Last is another JetPens pencil. A Dr. Grip 0.9mm Shaker pencil. Like that dark red color. Add all these great pencils to your collection.

My BIC 4 and 2 Collection

I said I would post the BIC set so far which includes the new orange BIC with rubber grip so here they are. There appears to be no end to this and I along with other collectors think  BIC has done an outstanding job with their 4 and 2 way BICs. They just need to start selling them in the US. I am getting more of the orange BICs so I may be giving some away. Add all these pens to your collection.

New BIC 4 Way

Some years back before any of the BIC 4 ways with rubber grips starting showing up in our stores I saw a picture from Japan of the 10 new BIC 4 Ways in ten different colors. Here is the orange one. These are nice pens because they are fine point. As you remember the original BIC 4 way in orange that also a fine point pen. This one is just better because of the grip and the style. I have 5 and I will give away 2. Just sent me an email at moose@hot.rr.com and give me an address. First two get them. I will post another picture of my complete BIC 4 way and 2 way collection so far. Add these great pens to your collection.                      We have our two winners.

More Stuff And a HBO Show

Here we have some new old items. Top is another Pentel Roller Ball desk set.  Below the Pentel set is another of the Sterling Plastic Educator Boxes. I already have some of these but I do not like to pass up on a Presidents of the US one that ends in JFK. There at least five different versions of this SP#558 ending in a different President. JFK is the most desirable of the boxes. Below the box is the new BIC 4 way that has a stylus on the top. At the bottom is a 12" acrylic ruler with five pennies. On the left is a vintage Waterman ball point pen. On the right is a dealer box of Sterling Plastic 12" # 515 plastic rulers. Add all these great items to your collection. Now for some good news here in the Supply Room. We just got picked up for a new HBO TV show that will airing sometime this year. Already sent them a Box full of Pens and Pencils to get started with.  This will be our third TV show since I stated the blog in 09. More to come on this.

Astronaut Space Pen

Had to have this 45th Anniversary First Moon Landing Space Pen. This pen is commemorating the first moon landing on July 20th 1969. This pen has a solid brass barrel finished in blue titanium nitride over chrome plating and laser engraved with the Apollo 11 logo. Writes like all Fisher Space Pens and ran me about $80.00. Add one to your collection.

A Mechanical Pencil

 A Mechanical Pencil that will last you a lifetime. That is how this pencil is listed on Kickstarter. The inventor of this great pencil is Andrew Sanderson and he is down in Austin Texas. Just about a hour plus from me. He sent a pencil to me to review and here it is. The pencil comes in both Aluminum and Brass. I had all ready signed on some time ago to support this great project so I was extra surprised to get to review one. His original goal was $4000.00 and it is now over $100,000.00 People want this pencil. I loaded my pencil with Pentel HB soft lead and it works great.

Here are the three main part to this pencil. As I said before you can not see the lines where the tip un-screws. It looks like solid piece of aluminum with no groves to grip. Because of the diameter of this pencil you do not need any grips.

Aluminum Pencil
Length: 5.7inch
Diameter: .375 inch
Weight: .66 oz
Lead size 0.5mm

There are 8 days left so there is still time to sign on as a supporter for this great pencil. Not only will you get the pencil but there are also some stretch goal rewards. Add one to your collection.  Just google a mechanical pencil that will last a lifetime and his page will come up.
