Back in July of this year, I was informed by another collector of a new set of limited edition pencils coming out of England. In June, Pentel UK released the 3 pencils above and they are now available from a couple of dealers, but I have not found them on the Pentel website.
This pencil is another one of Pentel’s painted pencils, like the marble, the fluorescent and the vintage P200 pencils. The body is molded in black plastic, then painted and sealed in 3 iridescent colors.
P205-IB Morello Mist
This is a sparkly reddish pencil with white text.
The barcode for this pencil is 3474372160018, registered out of EuroPentel.
P205-IC Night Pigment
This is a night blue pencil with gold text.
The barcode for this pencil is 3474372160025.
P205-ID Kiwi Lime
This is a greenish-gold iridescent pencil with white text.
This pencil’s barcode is 3474372160032.
On a side note, I have added a new page at the top of my blog called “For Sale”. There, I will usually have a PDF or some other list of items I have for sale at the time.
As I have posted before, Pentel Japan released the P200 for Boys & Girls in 2016, then in 2018, Pentel Brazil released their version of the P200 for Boys & Girls in 3 sizes. This year, Brazil released a sixth color for their sets.
Well, also this year, Pentel Japan, working with Loft stores in Japan, released a revised version of their Boys & Girls set. This set makes a minor change to the text on the pencil. Instead of saying “Automatic Pencil P200 0.5 P205”, it now says “Automatic Pencil P205 0.5 P205”, as you can see in the picture above, with the new set in front, and the 2016 set in the back.
Other than that change, and the addition of the letters LF to the end of the part number, nothing else has changed. They are still the same quality pencils that Pentel has always released. All of these pencils still have the same price sticker (300 ¥) and same color names in Japanese, of which the following are my best translations.
