The Sharplet collection is coming along just fine. Have added at least sixteen new pencils. I am now out of space.
Added a rare Pentel 120 A2 0.3mm Sharplet. This one was not cheap.
Added two Sharplets from Walt Disney and the rare blue on blue 0.7mm pencil. You will see two 0.7 and 0.9 pencils. They are different. One has the word Japan after the A127 and the A129 and the others do not.
Here we have five sets of pencils with one having the A125 and the other has A125 Japan. Based on this I am still missing some pencils.
Here is a complete set of Aim 0.5mm pencils. Eight in the set. These pencils don't have Japan after the model.
Here are two pencils with the Japan after the model so I am missing the without. The hunt continues. Add all these great pencils to your collection.

Anyone who follows this blog knows that I have a very large Sterling Plastic collection. Sterling Plastic made many of the school and office supplies in the 60s and 70s. All US made. One of the most popular items were the roll top pencil boxes. Starting on the left is the box I just received. A orange and yellow SP #526. Next is my other SP #526 pencil box. Two on the right are the Hasbro roll top models.
I don't think the roll top boxes were real durable because the prices on these are high compared to the other SP boxes. They do however seem to hold up in the Supply Room. I have been keeping pencils and pens in my boxes.
Great boxes. I don't know what other colors they came in.
This new one is in good condition except for some marks on the bottom. Lid retracts just fine and someone will get plenty of good use out of this box.
Here are the Hasbro boxes. Both in great shape and ready to use. No model number on these boxes. Add them all to your collection.

We have added a few new ones to the growing collection. Top right I have add a second clear with green components and a new clear with dark pink components. These are from Mexico. What is good for collectors is that there are currently four or five more of the pink ones for sale on eBay. I think the top row is about complete. I have not been putting the all metal side clicker in these pictures. Rubber grip ones on the second row there may be one or two that I am missing but no picture to confirm.
Here they are along with the grey Popnpop pencil. Add all these great pencils to your collection.

They do things different overseas. There the BIC pen company let customers pick out their favorite pens and the company put them in one package. Here in Texas these type BIC pens with the two tone caps are sold at out local grocery store HEB. The pens are first look the same as the ones sold in the US but the plug matches the cap color. Here the same color blue plug is used in all the pens.
Made overseas. Add these pens to your collection.

Here we have all the Orenz pencils to date except a few of the two tone pencils. Starting on the left you have the all metal PP1002G, orange rubber grip PP603G, two of the original pencils PP503, PP502 then the two tones pencil, PP502, and two PP503s. Now we add the Black 0.5mm PP505 and the Blue 0.7mm pencil PP507. The leads are very hard to break with this new Pentel mechanism.
The two new ones are a welcome addition to my collection and for the Orenz lineup.
Pentel has now added a high end pencil to their great line of pencils. Here is the all metal Pentel PP3003 Orenznero. I think this new high end model only comes in black. I like fine point pencils and this one works great. Price is between $75.00 to about $110.00 where I could find them on the web. I paid about $100.00 and it got here from Japan in about a week and a half. This pencil also comes in 0.2mm.
This pencil makes using a 0.3mm pencil flat out fun. Add one to your collection.

Here are the new Blackwing Vol 205s. Chinese explorer Zhang Qian laid the foundation for the Silk Road in 138 BCE. You get six green jade pencils and six white jade pencils. To me these are the best set yet. I went and bought two boxes.
These pencils are a real collector item and will sell out quit. These pencils came from www.pencils.com. Add them to your collection.

Here are a few new and old items. Top is another R-7 with a SG75 pencil set. This is a 0.5mm pencil which is somewhat rare. I picked this set up dirt cheap while prices on eBay are going through the ceiling on these older Pentel pens and pencils.
This is just one pretty set. May start using this one.
Here we have a somewhat new BIC 4 way. BIC took the green out and put a yellow highlighter ink in it's place, works great. They also put in a green/yellow clear barrel. Last is a Kaweco-Sport fountain pen. My first Kaweco pen. Very smooth and came with five ink cartridges. Add them all to your collection.
