Pentel Slim Rollers

Posted by Picasa
Here is my complete set of these great Pentel Slim Rollers from the 70s to the 90s. These are by far my favorite pentel rollers. Starting on the left are the R-3s. There are five of them and there are slight variations in the ones made in the 70s verses the 90s, also there is a slight variation in the ones sold in the US, Europe and in Japan. Next are the green, black, blue and red R-4s. Then the gold brush R-6 followed by three striped R-7s. Three sterling silver rollers followed by the gold R-3000. The difference in size on some of them are the refills. Most have the standard MG8 refills while others have the Ceramicron refills. In the standard MG8 only black is available. In days past you could also get refills in red, green, blue. Add them all to your collection.

New Pen Storage Cabinet

Posted by Picasa
I have been tracking this large plastic pen storage cabinet for five years. I first saw it in a local coffee shop. They paid $300.00 for it for the display of pastries. The shop closed about 2 years ago and the cabinet along with other items were sold to another coffee shop in Killeen Texas. I may add that it ended up in the coffee shop I go to every day. For my birthday on the 11th I got the cabinet for $30.00. Pastries out pen and pencils in. My largest cabinet to date. Three shelves that hold 40 pens each, maybe more, stands 16" tall, 17" from front to rear, 21" wide, slants inward in the front, two doors that pull out with magnets to hold them closed. Where to put it is another question. I will post it again when I find space for it down in the supply room. Add one for your collection.

Merry Christmas To Me

Posted by Picasa
Sometimes we get to buy our own Christmas presents. On the left are two new 1960s or early 70s autopoint pencils. Dark blue one is going to Ricardo. From JetPens we have the new Hi-Tec-C Coleto Lumio in black, a pentel energel 0.7mm pen, two Uni Style Fit in orange and green. Next is a Pilot S-20 in the dark wood. Great pencil. Next is a pencil only a few collectors have. A 1980s Pentel PG 1505 Auccugraph. This is the old version with no lead indicator. I used this pencil today for general writing and it is outstanding. Hope you get all these and more for Christmas.

Pentel Permaroller MR205

Posted by Picasa
I have never seen one of these before. The top one is older MR 205 and does not work. The bottom one is a Pentel Permaroller Gold MR 205. It has a marble barrel and a 24 karat gold electroplated pocket clip. Has a nice fine point, black ink and writes well. Add them both to your collection.
