Fountain pens and mechanical pencils have fascinated me since seeing the first of each years ago. Since then I acquired several mechanical pencils (usually inexpensive, but a few premium ones too). My father used to say I had champagne tastes and a beer budget ;-)
I have a black and chrome, Pilot Vanishing Point Pencil model H-1005 that I plan to sell in the Classifieds forum here. It was used occasionally and had been in the pen drawer for years.
Last week I took it out and loaded some Pentel 0.5 mm B grade lead for a flawless performance. Nowadays; however, my preference runs to 0.2 mm & 0.3 mm leads. Hence my decision to sell this pencil that someone else may enjoy and appreciate the truly rare treasure it is.
Your collective guidance as to pricing would be very helpful. I would like to request a reasonable amount to promote a quick sale.
Looking forward to your suggestions,
I would love to see it
I'm also a big MP fan because I (REALLY) hated to resharpen the regular pencils tip. For most of my life I've been a (really) small letter writer and medium points (in general) don't work for me. I used to own both original Pilot The Shaker models but recently one of them got lost so I'm looking to replace it soon. My other favorites are a Caran d'Ache 0.7 mm and a nameless 2 mm that I bought like 20 years ago because I had (and still have) a vintage metal package of those leads and just wanted to check them out.
