I love to say that I have them all just so I can find out that I don't. I do like the hunt. Starting on the left we have three 0.3mm pencils. Next are four 0.5mm pencils. Last are three 0.7mm pencils. Most of these pencils came from TokyoPenShop.com.
These are very nice pencils. You can advance the lead by clicking on the top or you can use the Shaker. Right in the center of the pencil you can turn the shaker on or off. Add all these great pencils to your collection.

I have added a few more Pentels to this group. There always seems to be another Pentel pencil or color out there that I did not know about.
The Pentel people did a good job of making a nice mechanical pencil for every hand size.

It is finally here. The new larger Parker Jotter. Here are my three sizes. The small Jotter that was used on the TV show Mad Men. Made for the smaller lady's hand. Then the Jotter we all know and love. One the right is the new larger Jotter. There are four different colors in the larger Jotters. This one is grey.
The new larger Jotter will fit in nice with the rest of the group. Add all these new Jotters to your collection.

October Pen World magazine had a short piece on this pen. The pen is from China but it got here to Texas real quick. Has everything that is in the picture. The orange is very nice and I have ordered another one. The pen was under $12.00.
The pen has a hooded nib which I like. Will put some ink in it as soon as I finish up some of the other fountain pens on my desk. Add one to your collection.

I have always been a fan of Sterling Plastic office and school supplies. I used them all through the 60s and the beginning of the 70s. All our local five and dime stores had Sterling Plastic. In this picture we have the Sterling Plastic Educator Boxes. Left side are the Presidents of the US Boxes. If you are collecting these boxes remember there are five different ones. Each box ends with a different President. The earliest box and the most popular ends in JFK. The last box ends in President Carter. I am missing President Ford. On the right are the Events in US History, Map of the World and the US States.
Her we have the newest box in my collection. On the left is a Sterling Plastic Box from Israel and is in Hebrew. First time I have ever seen one of these. On the right is the hardest to find box. Our Solar System.
Our Solar System is complete. In this box Pluto is still a planet. Add all these great pencil boxes to your collection.
