    Have you seen this pen?

    So I have had this pen for a few years, no idea where it came from, think I may have accidentally walked away with it from work or something. The thing is the absolute nicest pen I have ever used to draw with. The lines are smooth and crisp, it feels great in my hand, looks cool and is just a pleasure to use. Unfortunately it is running out and I cannot find any evidence that more of them exist on the internet or irl. Has anybody seen them? The green text says mitsubishi (like the car company) if you can't read it.

    Well here's the eraser, with the same logo, and it says it's made by uniball. http://www.jstationery.com/product_i...roducts_id=864

    My guess is that this pen is the modern version? http://www.penaddict.com/boxy/

    Could be a cheap pen Mitstubishi uses to advertise with. Like printing their name on it for promo.

    Bulk buying of S-7S and refill BOXY-100
    Ballpoint pen somewhere down the line you are using. Very easy to write but I think it was probably bought at 100 yen shop. Ballpoint pen, but he thinks I want to put this house or what, ballpoint pen was then bought Imaichi very much. · Do not even put in the corner stationery store and other shops 100 yen even want to buy the same ballpoint pen also because there is no way, this ballpoint pen was usually try to avoid it. Have been using, such as when you hand the destination of the audience such as pack and letter. However, I decided to check on the net I At this rate, it would also eliminate any ink. Shop and buy it with the net that I searched by the character that is printed on the ballpoint pen of "BOXY 100 MITSUBISHI" has been found. BOXY series had been released from Mitsubishi Pencil Co., Ltd. is likely that were popular from the mid-1970s, the 1980s. Speaking of which, old, place the eraser on the desk super car, I remember that was playing with a ball-point pen flicking like this. Ballpoint pen I was using, apparently it was released as a limited facsimile edition of the series in 2006 BOXY thing that BOXY-100. This facsimile edition stock is likely to be discontinued and no longer depends on. "BOXY stationery reprinted edition limited series" A search on the net, it seems many people liked BOXY-100 is in the same way as me. That some people have trouble with seems to have disappeared from the corner convenience store from a few years ago, such as stationery Yappari. But some are sold and the net but still. I think we are selling because there is a set of 10, and I'll buy some while you can.

    Have you seen this pen?

    BOXY-100, so that also sell refill, it seems that the exchange can also refill the way only.
    Refill of that model number S-7S is in the refill of BOXY-100, are sold in sets of 10 as well.

    Is it possible to see some examples of your work that uses the pen? I'm always on the look out for new inking tools and I'd be curious to see some of your results.

    @Eric Lofgren: it's a very fine smooth line, closest thing i've used to it is a hi tec c, although this one has more resistance on the paper than a hi tec c

    Hmm, i wonder about Uniball. I've been using Bic four colour pens lately and while it's good + comfortable, it only takes the tiniest piece of thread caught up in the ball point to prevent the ink from running. I think nothing pisses me off more than making lite strokes only for nothing to come out until you put more pressure on and an ugly thick black line comes out, lol

    Might have to purchase these and give them a go.. now if only Bic would make yellow and orange ink for their colour pens..

    I GET IT!!!!

    I don't use a pen for strait drawing, I use pencil and then inking pens over the top, for writing I have a Parker fountain pen that ma' ol' granddaddy used in school, still works almost 80 years and three owners down the line.
