Pentel Energel Philography

Here are some pictures of the new Pentel Energel Philography pen. This pen uses the energel refill but has a all new look. It has been some time since Pentel came our with a new pen design. You can get this pen in black, white, silver, dark blue, and turquoise. I got my pen at Tokyo Pen Shop,

 Nice lines on this pen. I find myself carrying this one most days.

 Add one to your collection.

Parker 88

 This is the first time I have ever seen a Parker 88. It is the same size as a Parker Vector and seems to be like a high end Parker Vector. I believe that this model was from the late 80s.

As you can see it does look like a Vector. These Vectors are one of the most common advertising pens out there. Roller ball is what I have and seems to be the most requested. There is also a fountain pen and a ball point.

This Parker 88 should be a roller ball but turns out to use the Parker Jotter refills. That was a surprise to me. This Parker 88 has a very nice blue and red with gold trim. The pocket clip has feathers while the Vector does not. Add one to your collection.

Glow In The Dark Retro 51 Pens

Here we are with my complete Retro 51 Glow In The Dark pen collection except one. There are seventeen pens and one pencil. The missing pen is the 2011/2012 BEEP (with the robots). Don't know anyone with one but I am sure they are out there. I would be giving up some nice items from the collection to get that pen. Based on my information there has only been eighteen pens and one pencil made by Retro 51 that glow in the dark.

 Here they are with some glow. The Dr. Grey on the right now has a pencil to go with it. They do make a nice pair. Add all these great Retro 51 pens and pencils to your collection.

What I got for Christmas.

 I did very well this Christmas. Here we have a second Infinity pen with the small piece of a meteorite on the top of the cap. This one is a ball point. I will be putting this one away and using my roller ball. I got a great deal on this pen.

Faber-Castell Ambition roller ball in black is the next gift that I got myself. This is my first nice Faber-Castell pen and I am impressed. This pen is currently on sale at Goldspot pens and their customer service to one of the best. This pen was on sale.

 Did not have a Parker Duofold ball point in my collection. This one was made in 1988. I t is used but in great condition. The more I use it the better I like it.

 USS Constitution is the oldest commissioned war ship in the world. One of 6 frigates that were put to work by our young government in 1797. Nicknamed Old Ironsides the pen is made from wood that was removed during a refitting in 1973.  A very nice addition to the collection.

 Abraham Lincoln has always been one of my favorite Presidents. This pen is made of wood from one of the Witness Trees still growing today at the park. This tree saw the battle at Gettysburg in which 46,000 to 51,000 soldiers were killed. This tree also was there when President Lincoln give his famous Gettysburg Address 1863. I still have at least three more pens that I received for Christmas and they will show up in another post. Add all these great pens to your collection.
