    ...found a nice vintage Rotring trio-pen.
    special thing is that there are three different lead sizes instead of ballpoint colors...

    Is the Trio a single pencil loaded simultaneously with three leads, or does it require reloading with each lead, or is the Trio actually a set of three pencils?

    Great drawing, great picture!

    I have a version of this around somewhere with three different coloured pencils, and I recall at one point having one with a ballpoint and two different grades of pencil. The body of that one cracked badly (it got dropped a lot!).

    I have a modern version from Platinum (2 pens, 1 pencil) that is very functional, but much less robust, but I think my favourite was another Japanese version called something like a locus that included a pencil eraser. I must go and look in the pencil drawer to see what happened to it, though these days I rarely use anything much more sophisticated than a koh i nor.

    the trio-pen is a single pen with three writing systems into it. works like a multi color ball point, but in htis case with different lead size. for refill, the pen has to be disassembled and every unit refilled seperately. a fiddly job...

    Christof, There just might be a job opening at Lamy for you, but I know you'd prefer old-school Pelikan.

    Quality control problem at the factory: those tortoise pens don't look all the same!

    I had to come back to try to choose a favourite. I think it's #5, but it might be #8.

    I sure enjoy these a lot more than digital renderings. Nice.

    BTW, when you are done with that, can I have it for a cat scratching post? The cats would love it!

    If you can wait until 2028 and if you will cover the shipping costs (the model is over 2 meters long and weighs 50 kg...) we could talk about...

    It's a bit like the ultimate Lundby doll's house My daughter would have loved that when she was little.

    What's with the elephants on the first floor? Is this a multi-storey zoo?

    Which nib is in your "51"?
