Back on 1 May 2017 I posted my complete Pentel Techniclick pencil collection. I said I may have all of them. Well I was not even close. Since 1 May I have added eleven new pencils. That makes nine different versions of this pencil for my collection. I liked the Techniclick pencil but I never though that there would be so many different versions from around the world. The new pencils are the six new PD 227s on the bottom right and the five new PD 105Ts at the top right. The 105Ts have the same model number as the orginal PD 105Ts top left. As you can see they do not look the same.
These are from Europe and are called Clic a Color. The color of the side button is the color of the lead. The model of these pencils are PD 227.
These are from Mexico. These are the five 0.5mm pencils and I am missing the three 0.7mm pencils. As you can see they are a different tint then the other clear pencils in the collection. The model number of these pencils are PD 105Ts. Add all these great pencils to your collection.

There is a seller on eBay with the name of sellers name of dalyspenshop. I talked to him for some time and it seems that he bought two boxed of Pentel items from a person who worked at Pentel. This pencil is one that I did not have. I spent more money then I wanted to but you do what you need to do so I won the bid. Lets just say over $100.00 was spent. Like I said I spent more then I wanted to.
Great example of a PD335 Pop n pop pencil. Still looking for the back ground of the Pop n pop meaning. I have a friend who worked for Pentel for over 30 years and has now retired. I am told that she may be working on a blog to show her collection. I just hope that this is true because we need an expert from Pentel to get us all going in the right direction. Add all these great pencils to your collection.

This is the second two pen artist series set sold by Vanness Pen Shop and Retro 51. The first was the Joey Feldman set with two pens that glow in the dark. Those pens also come with signed artwork. These new artist set is from Bioworkz. These pens are sold as a set or you can just buy one pen. If you want in on this you need to get with it.
Here is their new home.
Since I only have one space left I will be adding a third pen display box soon. Add all these great pens to your collection.

Had to add another one to the collection. If nothing else I have something to trade. This one is brand new yet almost 40 years old. This pencil has the continuing feed of the lead like the new Pentel Orenx PP3003 I posted a few posts back. The big difference is that the Orenz has a sliding sleeve or pipe that re-tracks almost completely and the Technomatic re-tracks about half the lenght of the pipe. The pencil is 5" long so even with the pipe still out you can carry in your pocket without stabbing yourself.
The new one has a green eraser with a needle to clean out broken lead. Add one to your collection.

I have been collecting these great pens for years. It started while I was in the Army when I was able to visits different towns in our great country. Every mall had a Hallmark store and those stores had these wooden pens. What I have not done is keep track of the different woods. These four are my best ball points and the best looking wood. The only one I know what it is would be the last pen on the right. That one is walnut with gold trim. The rest may be rosewood or who knows. First and third on the left are new pens to the Supply Room. I do know these are great pens that continue to bring joy to writing. These pens use Cross refills with the required adapter which you get free from Hallmark. Add all these great pens to your collection.

Can't just store all these pencils in a cardboard box so I added a third Pentel display case. This one is in great shape and by the time the weekend hits the cabinet will be full. If you want to see the same cabinet but with lights go visit www.nimrodd.net. Be prepared for a history lesson on the P200 pencils.
Bottom right has my Pentel pens. Top right has Pentel pencils and the new one will have the same. Below the new cabinet are my two Retro 51 cases full of their pens. Add all these great cases to your collection.

I think I have them all. It seems that every time I tell myself that I find more but this time I think I may have them. These are the Pentel Techniclick pencils. Most are not being made anymore but people still buy and collect them. I have seven different versions for a total of forty pencils. Six on the bottom right are extras.
Top row on the left we start with the seven original PD105Ts and the PD107Ts followed by the three Aim Supplio PD 265s. I picked up these three from JetPens. Next are the seven PD235Ts and PD 237Ts Techniclick 2s. Last in the row are the seven Techniclick Razzle Dazzles.
Starting on the left we have the five PD 305s and PD 307 Techniclick Gs. Next are the six PD 245s and PD 247s which they call Pentel T3s. Last are the five Techniclick PD 105Cs. Add all these pencils to your growing collection.

The Sharplet collection is coming along just fine. Have added at least sixteen new pencils. I am now out of space.
Added a rare Pentel 120 A2 0.3mm Sharplet. This one was not cheap.
Added two Sharplets from Walt Disney and the rare blue on blue 0.7mm pencil. You will see two 0.7 and 0.9 pencils. They are different. One has the word Japan after the A127 and the A129 and the others do not.
Here we have five sets of pencils with one having the A125 and the other has A125 Japan. Based on this I am still missing some pencils.
Here is a complete set of Aim 0.5mm pencils. Eight in the set. These pencils don't have Japan after the model.
Here are two pencils with the Japan after the model so I am missing the without. The hunt continues. Add all these great pencils to your collection.

Anyone who follows this blog knows that I have a very large Sterling Plastic collection. Sterling Plastic made many of the school and office supplies in the 60s and 70s. All US made. One of the most popular items were the roll top pencil boxes. Starting on the left is the box I just received. A orange and yellow SP #526. Next is my other SP #526 pencil box. Two on the right are the Hasbro roll top models.
I don't think the roll top boxes were real durable because the prices on these are high compared to the other SP boxes. They do however seem to hold up in the Supply Room. I have been keeping pencils and pens in my boxes.
Great boxes. I don't know what other colors they came in.
This new one is in good condition except for some marks on the bottom. Lid retracts just fine and someone will get plenty of good use out of this box.
Here are the Hasbro boxes. Both in great shape and ready to use. No model number on these boxes. Add them all to your collection.

We have added a few new ones to the growing collection. Top right I have add a second clear with green components and a new clear with dark pink components. These are from Mexico. What is good for collectors is that there are currently four or five more of the pink ones for sale on eBay. I think the top row is about complete. I have not been putting the all metal side clicker in these pictures. Rubber grip ones on the second row there may be one or two that I am missing but no picture to confirm.
Here they are along with the grey Popnpop pencil. Add all these great pencils to your collection.

They do things different overseas. There the BIC pen company let customers pick out their favorite pens and the company put them in one package. Here in Texas these type BIC pens with the two tone caps are sold at out local grocery store HEB. The pens are first look the same as the ones sold in the US but the plug matches the cap color. Here the same color blue plug is used in all the pens.
Made overseas. Add these pens to your collection.

Here we have all the Orenz pencils to date except a few of the two tone pencils. Starting on the left you have the all metal PP1002G, orange rubber grip PP603G, two of the original pencils PP503, PP502 then the two tones pencil, PP502, and two PP503s. Now we add the Black 0.5mm PP505 and the Blue 0.7mm pencil PP507. The leads are very hard to break with this new Pentel mechanism.
The two new ones are a welcome addition to my collection and for the Orenz lineup.
Pentel has now added a high end pencil to their great line of pencils. Here is the all metal Pentel PP3003 Orenznero. I think this new high end model only comes in black. I like fine point pencils and this one works great. Price is between $75.00 to about $110.00 where I could find them on the web. I paid about $100.00 and it got here from Japan in about a week and a half. This pencil also comes in 0.2mm.
This pencil makes using a 0.3mm pencil flat out fun. Add one to your collection.

Here are a few new and old items. Top is another R-7 with a SG75 pencil set. This is a 0.5mm pencil which is somewhat rare. I picked this set up dirt cheap while prices on eBay are going through the ceiling on these older Pentel pens and pencils.
This is just one pretty set. May start using this one.
Here we have a somewhat new BIC 4 way. BIC took the green out and put a yellow highlighter ink in it's place, works great. They also put in a green/yellow clear barrel. Last is a Kaweco-Sport fountain pen. My first Kaweco pen. Very smooth and came with five ink cartridges. Add them all to your collection.

You can always find a reason to re-invent a standard pen and this is what Pentel did with their EnerGel pens. These are the limited edition Pentel Cat Pens. The first ad I saw was for five pens but I ended up with six. Starting left to right we have the American Short Hair, the Abyssinian, the Red Tabby, the Bicolor Cat, the Siamese and last the Tortie and White. I like cats so I picked up all of them. Add all these cat pens to your collection.

Wearever Trans View mechanical pens were the alternative to the famous Scripto K780 in the 60s and early 70s. The Scripto won and has been very collectible over the years but so has the Wearever Trans View pencil. I had 13 and have just added a 14 which has a little different eraser holder. This new one appears to be brand new. What a find. These pencils came in blue, clear, yellow, green, orange and blue. The Wearever solid color along with the Scripto solid color pencils don't seem as collectible as the clear ones.
The new pencil is orange has a black enclosed cap for the eraser. I would bet that some of these have advertising on them. Scripto did the same thing as you can see in the last picture. All these pencils use the same size lead, 1.1mm and the same eraser. All my pencils work but because of their age some work better then others. Time and where they were stored plays a big part. This new Trans View does not have a removable pocket clip like the standard ones do.
Here is a Scripto advertising pencil along side the Wearever Trans View. Add all these great pencil to your collection.

Last is the new Graph 1000 Limited 70 Years SINCE 1946 with gold components.
Close up of the first five.
Close up of the last two. All these pencils are selling out quickly so pick up yours soon. Add them all to your collection.

How long has it been since BIC came out with the BIC 4 Way pen? In the old days it was a blue barrel for medium point and orange barrel for fine point. Now I have about 55 different barrels not counting this new pen. BIC took away the green ink and replaced it with a 0.7mm pencil. Added the grey rubber grip on a clear barrel and you have one of the best new pens for 2017.
Works like any of the new multi pens on the market.
Basic instructions that will show you how to add one new piece of 0.7mm lead.
I have been using this pen all week and it works. everybody had a BIC 4 Way pen. Add this new one to your collection.
