I found this and its price is 2000$…
Is it original model? or custom model?
Korean collector DamDeok notice me the information.
It is called Hi-Mecha skeleton.
It is not for sale, only for salesman in PILOT.
so… Tehnically it is original product.
It was also in Knockology before.
I’ll trade a good number of rare pencils for one of those
No doubt. I’d love to know how many are floating around out there. My guess is fewer than 100 (and possibly fewer than 25 are actually known about).
The ‘problem’ with demonstrators: their main function was to show off the mechanism, not to function with the same durability. Whenever I spot a nice demonstrator of some old pen or pencil, there is often one of the following issues:
- Hairline cracks in the clear resin / plastic where the screw joints are
- Dirt, ink or debris trapped inside
It comes with the territory… so caveat emptor!
I remember many moons ago (perhaps in 2005 when I started this hobby) coming across a lo-fi picture of a transparent 1005 on a green background with a white gradient and thinking it was some sort of archetypical rendering of a pencil that didn’t exist — at the same time I knew it wasn’t a rendering because it looked like a crappy polaroid of a real 1005 and who on earth would lose their time doing a crappy rendering in 3D… so I was always in a state of suspended wonder and disbelief about this pencil until very recently when I saw one fly by in an auction. When I started trading pencils you could win auctions fairly easily and I acquired many wonders, but this one never showed up. Now it’s fairly impossible to get these sort of pencils w/o unlimited funds.
I think we saw the same picture. Since then I started looking for one, and finally won it this year.
