I got a good deal on these great BIC F-49 pens. The 48 pens that have never been used. The only problem I had was that some still had ink in them and it leaked out. Washed them all and removed the refills so they are now ready to go. I like this shade of yellow better then the yellow shade used in the F-25s and F-29s. I said ready to go which means that you have to put another refill in to get them to work but with the newer refills and ink you will never skip a beat. Some of these will be in my first give-away in a year and a half. Add them all to your collection and stay tuned.

I have been waiting all week on these pens and today they came in. Fast service from PenChalet.com.The dark lilac color is great and the grip makes it even better. I have never had a problem with the Lamy Safari grip but once you try this matte finish you will be impressed. I have ordered the ball point and some dark lilac refills for the fountain pen. First time in a while that I also picked up the fountain pen. This one has a medium nib. I will be looking forward to some great reviews on these pens.

Looks like here in the US we only have the five metallic colors. When I received my BIC box from England there were two more colors. The red and the gold metallic. Those of you collecting BIC 4 ways still need to find the other two colors.
I checked Ebay all the time and I have not seen these two colors.
I had to move the BIC Two Ways to another case. No more room.
On the BIC 2 ways I am missing the gold and the red metallic. Add them all to your collection.

Thanks to my good friends in England I just received what could be the final Rotring Core Rollerball pen.The new one is the one on the left. It also turns out to be one of the prettiest of the set. The new one is the Rubidium red and black with the metallic red barrel. The two smaller blue ones on the right are the ball point pens.
This new Core is by far the hardest to find. Add them all to your collection.

Here we have my new Acme Beatles Rollerball Pen. There are 27 different Beatles pens and you would have to have some money to get them all. From 1962 to 1970. I grew up with the Beatles and I remember sitting in front of our TV when they first hit the Ed Sullivan show. My dad made a point about no son of his would have long hair like that. He was wrong.
. These Acme pens are very nice. I also have the dog and the cat rollerball pens.
Add them all to your collection.

Here we have a new pencil for collecting. Starting on the left we have the original Orenz 0.2mm pencil in blue. Next is the Orenz 0.3mm pencil. The orange is a 0.3mm pencil with a rubber grip. Last is the all metal 0.2mm pencil. Pentel did an outstanding job making a usable pencil in 0.2 and 0.3mm leads. Its all in the mechanics of this great pencil. All them all to your collection.

Not going to try and list all these pencils. I have had these for some time and have slowly collected them without paying and attention to the numbers or condition. I am not including my Blackwing pencils.
Anybody seeing one they are interested in just let me know.
Add them all to your pencil collection.
