Welcome to my Pentel Clic collection thread. I’ve been a little obsessed with these for the last 4-5 years after initially developing an interest in them back in 1987. My grade 3 teacher had a transparent charcoal PD345 on his desk and something about the side knock and the transparent barrel caught my eye! At that time they were ~$6 in K-mart.
Sadly, I’m still missing a few (not that this is in any way an official request):
PD515 Pop’npop black/grey
PD335 Purple-coloured clip non-Pop’npop
PD15 red with a cap
PD345 clear clic II black, blue
PQ11 persons. Orange, red, pink. Not sure about these.
PD359 Quickcolour blue
You’ll notice that I do not have any rubber grip versions. IMO, they’re an abomination. Shame on you, Pentel! I also don’t really like the newer versions like the Piannisimo.
Finally, if anyone from Pentel is reading this, please bring the original back into production.
Mate, there’s too much detail in your reply to know where to start. How is it that every time I post this collection, you find new holes in it? I fill the gaps I know about, only for more to appear, lol.
Firstly, thanks for the kind words. Next, despite my words above, I want to know about any gaps so I can keep up the hunt, so thanks for the info.
As you know, I’m not all that committed to the PD15. They’re currently just gap-fillers. I’d happily squeeze them out with DPDs or other PDs.
I like the PD1055 and 1065 but I can see why you don’t include them. They might also be squeezed out eventually.
Thanks for the correction on the PQ11 colours too.
I need a sub-category for the PD345 white, PD335 black and PD335 white with black accents. That’s a dangerous slope though, because promo items are arguably not ‘pure’ pieces and god knows how few/many of them are in existence!
