Mitsubishi Exceed, made by Sailor and based on their Hoscal model. I didn't know it existed - or there was a Mitsubishi branded fountain pen, even - before I found this one.

Mitsubishi is everywhere, it seems.  I need to take  a look at this Sailor Hoscal line, totally up my alley.

Even though they share a name and logo, this Mitsubishi is not affiliated with the mega-huge company that makes cars, nuclear power plants, and many, many other things. 

 

The Hoscal is one of my favorites. If you don't mind a thin pen you will probably love it.

I looove thin pens, I think the next pen will be a Chalana of some sort for sure. I have a slim candy that is so precious. Is this the pencil company Mitsubishi? I thought at one point, they were all part of one big zaibatsu, but I’m a Asian American that is rather ignorant of how things work on the other side of the world.

Yes, the pencil company. I'm a Jewish-American in Asia.  :D

 

Are you referring to the Sailor Candy? If so, the Hoscal is significantly thinner and the Chalana is much, much thinner - like *super* thin and has a uniquely sized cartridge/converter.

No, the slim candy takes a Chalana cartridge or converter. Here’s the Slim next to a Clear Candy and a Candy based Sanrio pen.( forgive the ink stains on my pen towel). Not sure when they were made.

I wasn't even aware of the slim Candy or even that there are demonstrator versions of the regular size. Very cool!

I only found out about the slim because I was looking for another section and nib in case the one on the Badtz-Maru pen broke- it has either a hairline crack or a  crease of sorts in the section. I bought the slim because it was listed as a clear candy and I was hoping the section would fit my pen. When it got here I was overwhelmed by how cute and tiny it is.None of the sections fit though,the threads are different- although I can switch the cap with Badtz on it onto the larger clear ones if necessary. I think the slim is from the 1970s.

So I gave into temptation and snapped up this little one for $30 with postage. You penabler, you 😆

That timeline is super cool, thanks for passing that along! The only thing that I have seen online about it points to early 1980s, the slim pen heyday.

I want to state - for the record - that I did not bring up the Chalana. That purchase is on you, alone. 😅

😂 you’re right, all me! I actually have no idea if it’s actually a Chalana, as the seller didn’t know much about it. I hope it is, but even if it’s not, I love 14k nibs and slim silhouettes for pens so it will get a ton of use.

It just got here, and it totally is a Chalana, complete with a very old cartridge that I had to soak to remove. Currently cleaning it up. 😍
