Here is a Pentel pencil that is no longer being made. I have a few in my collection but it has not been one of my favorite Pentels. In the 1982 Pentel Catalog they show a black P225 with a blue P227 and a yellow P229. It appears that the P227 and P229 were not kept in the line up and are very hard to find.
Now I find that the P225 came in more then one color. Here is the red pencil. The standard black P225 is very popular among collectors but I like the colors. I am still looking for the P227 and the P229. Add them all to your collection.

Here we go with 31 Retro 51 pens that glow in the dark. I may have them all.
Don't remember all the names but the most resent is the one called System on the right. Next to that is the Pen World Retro. Prices are going through the roof on Retro 51 pens. Collectors are grabbing them up. Glow in the dark Retro 51 pens have been very popular. The New York city pen in the middle jumped from $45.00 to over $400.00 within a few weeks of delivery.
They do give off a nice glow. Add them all to your collection.
Not going in a lot of detail except that this fountain pen was on sale at Levengers. I think $39.00. It writes great and is nice and strong. I am sure it was on sale because of the color but since I like brown I bought it. Uses small international refills or from a bottle. Add one to your collection.

Here they are. Starting on the left are the older GG 1000 0.7mm pencil and ball point pen. If you look close you will see that they have the old pocket clip. Pentel had some problems so they changed the clip. Next is the 0.9 and 0.4 GG 1000. Then we have the 0.5 pencil and ball point pen. They are not making the ball point pen version anymore. Next are the new black and silver, all red, all blue and all black GG 1000. Last is the gold version of the GraphGear 1000 and the matching EnerGels in gold, red and blue. Last we have two R-4s. All these new GG 1000s can be matched up with old and new Pentel pens.
Better look at the different clips. The ball point pens are very rare.
These new GraphGears are nice looking pencils.
