Old And New BICs


The BIC U.F.O. Wavelength pens are some of the harder sets to find. This is my second set because I opened one to put in my display case but still wanted one in the cardboard package. I also got it for a good price. These are from 1997.

 When is the last time you saw a yellow and a orange BIC Cristal pen? These pens are 1.6mm size so fine point they are not but still yellow and orange. The yellow is about the same shade as the yellow highlighter in the BIC 4 way I posted some time back. The orange is a very nice shade of orange. These were sold as a set of four. Add them all to your collection.

Conklin Ball Point


This is a very nice ball point pen. A few reviews I saw were not all the hip about the fountain pen but I went with the ball point.

 Very nice shade of orange. A great color for a pen. Add one to your collection.

Pens or Pen Display?


I ordered this set of 15 Jinhao 992 Demonstrator fountain pens for two reasons, they were cheap and I wanted the tray that holds the 15 pens.

I used three of the pens with one not feeding at alll and two of them leaked. I was using an ink cartridge.

 They are not staying here but it does make a good display. Add the tray to your collection.

New PGM 0.3mm Pencil


This part of the Pentel collection is slowly growing. I just got in the PGM 0.3mm pencil which is a replacement for the one I loaned out and never got back. There are a few variations on these pencils and you could check at the leadholders museum but it appears that the website is down. I only paid about $40.00 for this PGM pencil because the cap is missing. The good price was worth it.

 I think there s a 0.4mm PGM out there so the hunt continues. Add them to your collection.
