More additions to my collection

I apologize for the delay since my last post. Here are the items I have acquired since the last update:

A sampling of my new Zebra Z-Grips and Paper Mate Write Bros. I already had a bunch of Write Bros. pens, but I loved these colors. I have more of both the Zebra and Write Bros., but I only pictured a few.
Some more stuff we found cleaning out the basement. A Bic Round Stic with a neat clear spiral design, 2 of my old Garfield pencils from elementary school, and a Parker Jotter of my dad's from 1986. It has the old name of the company he works for on it along with the date. I just bought some refills for it and can't wait to use it. I don't have many things of my dad's, so it means a lot to me.
Pentel Client 0.5mm Pencil

From left to right: New Pentel Vicuna Ballpoint Pen (very similar to the Uni-Ball Jetstream), New Pentel Sharplet-2 0.7mm,  Bic Auditor's Fine Point Pen, Alexander Twist Pen, Vintage Sheaffer's Twist Pencil, Bic Ultra Fine, Vintage Pentel Quicker Clicker (needs new eraser/cap), Bic Roller Fine, Vintage Monroe Twist Pencil, Detroit Tigers promotional Bic Metal Point, 2 Pentel MGN6S refills, a Uni-Mitsubishi Boxy Eraser and a Pentel Ain Black eraser.
A special thanks to George @ My Supply Room for the Monroe and Sheaffer's pencils. The Pentel Vicuna is a very nice pen with hybrid ink similar to the Uni-Ball Jetstream, and I will be writing a review of that in the future. Stay tuned! By the way, does anyone know anything more about the Alexander pen company? I can't find much information about them at all. It's a nice looking pen.

  1. The BIC Auditor's Fine Point is a find. Plenty of history with that pen and the Lindy.

  2. I found a pen at work and fell in love with it. I haven't been able to find one since on the internet (until now). It is pictured here as Bic Ultra Fine. Is this the common name for them? Any help in naming or locating one from anyone would be greatly appreciated.


  3. Hi Bman,

    I have a bad feeling that if you find one, it might be dried up by this point. When I get a chance, I'll look through my collection for something comparable. George (who posted above you) is also a great source for all things Bic.
