New BIC 4 Way Metallic Set

Here we have a nice set of the new BIC 4 ways in the metallic body colors. Most of these are in the stores but the metallic green seems to be the hardest to fine. Someone left a comment on an earlier post that Sam's Club had the green one. Still a nice package to display all five new pens. Add them all to your collection.

BIC Medium Point PMs

Here we have my BIC medium point pen collection to date. Starting at the top we have a GM-39 Deluxe Med Point USA, then three Bell System M-39s.The next four blue ones are two different versions of the M-39s. Next is a PM-39 USA advertising BIC. Next two are the very nice PM-29s followed by the three very nice PM-39s. Just missing the green one. Next is the office property PM Medium point and last are the four PM Deluxe Medium Points. There are still plenty of Medium point missing from my collection and plenty of opportunities for you to add all these great BICs to your collection.

Kickstarter Cut/Once Heirloom Ruler

This is one of six Kickstarter projects that I have signed up for. This is the Cut/Once Heirloom Wooden ruler. It is made to look like a cut off piece of baseboard trim and when laying flat will hold your pencil or pen. 15"long and and looks great. I picked out the orange one but it comes in four other colors. This is also the first time I have used two pictures on one post.

The numbers are laser engraved on the bottom of the ruler. Made of maple wood in Chicago. You can get one at  Add one to your collection.

Reynolds Super Rocket

In October 1945 Miles Reynolds began selling his first Reynolds pens. The first one was called the International. Most of the metal components were made from war-surplus aluminum. In 1948 he decided to go out of business and walked away with $5 million bucks. He had a few different pens like the Reynolds rocket, Rockette and the Stubby Rocket. The one in the picture was called the Super Rocket and is a very large pen that held plenty of ink however they did have to be returned to the factory to be refilled. His pens never worked very well but he make some fast cash and a name for himself in ball point pen history. Add a Reynolds Rocket to your collection.

More Flair Pens

Here we have more old Papermate Flair Pens. The best of this lot is the one in the middle which is the refillable Flair Pen. I posted my first one on 15 Jan 2014   Papermate Flair post. That pen is the green one next to the carded red one. What is interesting about these pens is that the green one has the word Papermate on the pocket clip with the two hearts but the red one has the word Flair on the pocket clip without the two hearts. The cards have the same picture of the couple but from a different angle. I loaded a Foray rollerball refill with modification into the red Flair and it works fine. I have a felt tip refill in the green one and a rollerball refill in the red one. I am ready to write. The other four Flairs are from the late 80s and will stay on the cards for the collection. Flairs were always great pens. Add them all to your collection.

Lindy Pen School Pak

Here we have a great old school pak from Lindy. The packaging and the plastic seem to be in great condition. I would think from the 1960s. The handiest writing kit you've ever had! 1001 uses! This pak has a marble blue W-2 Lindy pen and a old version of their felt tip pen. Last is the memo pad for all your important notes. What great wording from the 60s. In the near future I will post the more current version of their felt tip pen which was a great marker to have. Plenty of other nice looking old and new pens in the picture. Add this Lindy school pak to your collection.

Hampton Lock and a BIC Pen

Here we have a nice school combo of a Hampton combination lock for your school locker or bicycle and a BIC body heat wavelength pen. The body of the BIC pen changes colors as your hand heats up the pen. I have seen six packs of these pens on eBay and they are fun and refillable. These are from around 1991. Add them to your collection.
