Pentel P200 Family


I may have one or two more somewhere in the office. There are also plenty new ones out there that I don't have. I remember when the first Pentel P200s came out in the 70s. I was in Germany at the time and every time they would be on the PX shelve I would buy all they had alone with the R3 rollerball pens.

Top row are all P205s except the last two which are P215 and P219. As you can see there are two with the new gold trim, marbled P205 plus the carbon fiber P205.

 Here we have the P207s and P209s. There is also a P327, PS315, PS 523 and the three PFs for writing on film. Last are my new P205, P207 and P209 from Brazil. Those last three are real hot pink and have the word "Collection" printed on the side. Add all these great pencils to your collection.

  1. Where did you get your case you use here? I have a large collection (88 pencils) of P200 series pencils that I would like to display better.

  2. I buy them on ebay when they have them. I pay about $32.00 each. I have 15 maybe. The one in the picture had BICs in there and my Pentels were in the large Pentel cabnets.I want to see the Pentels up close. 88 is a collection in deed. Please send me a picture of this collection to moose@hot.rr.com. Would love to see it.

  3. I do have a few duplicates that I have cataloged. I also have a few extras that aren't in that list, including a Blue P217 that I do not see in your collection.

    I also have also broken down the P200 series into what categorize as generations, of which I count 7. So I have 6 of the 7 generations of P205 (missing the 5th generation).

  4. You are the better man. I have so many pens and pencils that I collect that I don't have the detail on generations that you do. Still would like to see some pictures.

  5. I concentrated my collection down to the P200 series. I have a whole bunch of other mechanical/drafting pencils also.

  6. I was just looking at the pictures of your pencils and have a question about the PS315. It does not appear to have a sliding sleeve tip on it. It looks like a standard 0.5mm fixed tip. Is this correct, or a fluke of the image?

  8. I switched it with other P200s. I also switched out a P535 tip so I could have a sliding sleeve on a S55.
