New Lamy Roller Ball

Here we have my Lamy Safari collection and my new Lamy Al-Star Roller. Starting on the left the first pen is a Hero fountain pen followed by three Lamy fountain pens. Next five are Lamy roller ball pens and the last roller is another purple Hero. My new one is the 2014 Lamy Al-Star blue-green roller. All the Lamy rollers use the same refill but as is so offen the case the Hero uses another size refill. Still waiting on Lamy to come out with a purple Safari or Al-Star. Add them all to your collection.

More BICs and scriptos for the collection. The two BICs on the left also have a stylus tips on them. The rest of the BICs are just old and are needed for the collection. The scripto pens are nice with their World Championship Wrestling theme from 1999.  Add them all to your collection.

Uni Kuru Toga Pencils

Here we have my current Uni Kuru Togo pencil collection. I see that JetPens has three of the limited edition pencils in their just arrived section. I have the blue limited edition pencil along with the limited yellow one. The lime green pencil was my first one that I bought at JetPens. These are great pencils and a few of them should be in your collection and pencil case. There are many more variations out there so I will be looking for more storage space. Add them all to your collection.

BIC AF Accountant Collection

Here we have some of the most collectible BIC pens around today. I am always getting emails and questions about these great accountant fine points. We will run down the picture top to bottom or as it turns out oldest to newest. Top BIC a out of place AR-49 Bell Systems. Next is the very rare AF-49 Extra fine point green. Have only found this extra fine in green. Next are the four AF-49 fine point pens in green, red, blue and black. These are the only ones that have the ink color the same as the written words on the side of the pens. All from the 60s. Then we have the AF-59s and AF-69s. From the picture is missing my AF-69 in red. Then we have the four Accountant Fine Point with no AF number. Last are the four made in Mexico fine points. Last two pens are extra. These pens should cover the 60s to the 90s. Add them all to your collection.

First Papermate Retractable Ball Point Pen

This is the first retractable Papermate Ball Point Pen. Made between 1950 and 1953. I put a Fisher 4 N 1 refill in this pen and it works great. These original pens are still available and one should be in your collection. Anywhere from $15.00 to $45.00 dollars. Some collectors keep them with the original refill but I like to use them. All you had to do is push the clic button in and to the side so it would catch on the rim. Very easy to operate. This pen is 64 years old and works fine. Add one to your collection.

New Pentel Smash

Here we have the new Pentel Smash. Top is the original Smash in black. This pencil could also be found in grey and blue. Middle Smash is the 2013 Limited Edition in green. Three other colors are available. Bottom is the newest Smash with the metal grid around the grip and point. This 2014 Limited Edition comes in four other colors. The Pentel Smash seems to have a following of it own. Maybe because it is shorter and fits just right in your shirt pocket or pocket protector and is a well made pencil. I have had plenty of emails about the Smash. I even sold my Pentel Smash ball point some months back. Add them all to your collection.
