Pentel

The Pentel box…

The Pentel brand is very hard to find in Germany. As far as I know only a few shops do have Pentel Products and if so, it is mostly correction pens or fine liner paint marker. I need to check for more information about the company…

All of the Pentel markers I have are toluene/xylene-based and for that reason they have an intensive smell. The Pentel White 100W paint marker I got years ago in a Hip Hop shop. I never used it. I bought it just to have one. The slim N50 Pentel Pens are similar to the edding 3000. The red one is about twenty years old, the blue one, still in its plastic wrapping I found some weeks ago in an art and craft shop for cheap.

Pentel Felt Pens

Like all other Marker Pens of the Pentel brand, also these two markers are solvent-based (but I guess, there´s a new product line of alcohol-based Pentel Pens now…). The large Pentel Felt Pen is somewhat older than the small one. Different label, I wish I would find also a vintage version of the small F50 Pen. Like the slim Pentel Pens, the upper part of the F50 Felt Pen is put directly into the barrel. The large marker can be unscrewed and refilled. Nice dragon logo on the cap of the larger marker.

Vintage Pentel N50 Pens

I have Pentel Pens from different decades. Below is a box with the older version of the Pentel Pen N50. Received these a year ago or so. The other, more updated versions, I bought in the early 1990s – the red and the black one; the blue is the contemporary version.

A close look on the cap…

Looks unused, but dried out… need some xylene for that thing.

Pentel Wet Erase Chalk Marker

I found this marker in an arts and craft store in Berlin. I was surprised to find once again a different brand in a local shop. The marker was used, I think someone had tested it. Good for me, I got it 3,00 € off.

The marker is unsimilar to the previous vintage ones, but anyway, it´s one marker more…

    Hi. I’m interested in purchasing a large quantity of the pentel felt tip markers. Is there a website that I can find and buy them? Thank you for your time

      I was wondering the same thing, or at least a recommendation of perm. Markers that will give the same look as these! Thanks!

        Hi, you´ll find both markers – the large and the small Pentel Felt Pen – on eBay or at online shops. I don´t know a specific online shop, but just try with the Google picture search…
        The large Pentel Felt Pen has a different labeling now; the one in the picture above is the vintage version.
