Because we are down in the basement of the supply room most of the time, we do miss out on things. Lets take the upgrade of the Pentel Graphgear 1000 pocket clip. I have both, both are still sold but I just did not catch it. I guess this means we now have two versions of this great pencil. When did this happen? I never did have a problem with the old one but now you need both to keep your collection up to date.
