I am drastically reducing my collection. Below is a link to a Google spreadsheet listing the 300+ pencils I am considering selling. I don’t think there’s anything much particularly rare, but maybe an opportunity to complete your colour/size collection, etc. I haven’t priced anything as that’s way too much work at this stage. If you are interested in anything then make a “fair” offer. What’s fair? I often say something like 10-15% less than auction sell because there’s no fees involved so you pay less and I get more… win-win. Including some auction links with your offers would help. For items that are still currently available from retailers then about 75% of retail.
Keep in mind that tracked postage for 1 - 15 pencils is likely to cost about US$20-25. After that it starts to get a fair bit cheaper as the minimum weight parcel charge has likely been reached.
Please email me at davespencils AT gmail.com for any offers, questions, etc.

This would have been in late 2021 or early 2022, so unfortunately, I have no idea which pencil(s).
But you’ve definitely caught my attention with your listings since 2021! I think a guy on the sub-reddit purchased a red + transparent Mitsubishi W-knock from you that he rehabbed; that would have been the ultimate piece for me
Ah. The red mitsu went to a German collector if I remember correctly for a much lower price than I had anticipated, but he recurrently bought pencils from me so my margin wasn’t that great. The W-Knock is probably one of the best double-knocks they made in the 70s… From that time I only keep a Colleen-Jib WK-1035, but the mechanism isn’t as good as that one in the Mitsubishi, sometimes it stutters.
2021! Ebay doesn’t let me search that far back. I used to keep a spreadsheet with names and addresses and what pencil I sold but I never knew what to do with it (it never felt right), so eventually I stopped doing that.
