While people nowadays mainly use Bic to write with, I still want to believe some of you made the choice to write with a pencil.
And when I think about pencils, the most beautiful ones I have and use are almost 100 years old.
Do you also own such items?
Here's a small series from an already growing pencil collection. Hope you guys will like it.
(Note the rare Superite "demonstrator")

Very nice collection. I like the variety you have. Gosh, something older than me.

Those are beautiful. Do they all work well? Do you use any of them regularly?

Some of them are. Other are silver plated.

They all work perfectly, I use the Eversharp at the bottom.
I had a black Square 4 that I gave to a friend. That was a really nice pencil, elegant, understated. Too bad the shape of the coal (is that the correct word?) is, indeed, square.
