Pilot HW-50R—a ¥500 pencil I've never seen on resale sites!

One design trait I love in MPs is a flanged end cap. Typically, this is where a metal piece is fixed atop a plastic/resin barrel, and the finish matches the end cap.

The Pilot HW-50R is a great example, but there’s something very curious about this pencil—it never seems to appear on resale sites!

I’m hopeful this post will summon some of these specimens in 2023 :grin:


This usually works. And it’s usually costly. :joy:
