Storage and organising collection

Hi everyone!
I’ve searched for a storage solution from the beginning of my collection. At first I started collecting fountain pens but soon rediscovered the mechanical pencils.
The first solutions for storage where the coloured pens boxes,clear plastic, I had.
The second try was with some used notebooks with hard covers.
Last year I discovered a metal coloured pencils box at the local supermarket. I took out the plastic tray and made my own from a 3mm foam board.
I found also a black cardboard box with coloured pencils that has 2 trays. Repeated the process, made my own trays and tried


to organize things and that is always a challenge.
And these solutions are cheap…the metal boxes were $8 and the black boxes with trays were $10

Hi, no I’m not in Japan, I’m based in Europe.
Yes, I Iike colors but also very much like the mechanical pencils. Still exploring the different models and discover new ones.
I’m trying to choose a line or a model but for the moment I’m enjoying them and study about them.

I’m following the thread with the illuminated tray. I’ll have to try it myself.

Which ones? I just purchased one I haven’t seen before. Currently at a proxy in Japan

The leather one and the one with a metal band and burberry stripes model on it.

The Young Executive model it’s interesting but I’m not in a hurry to ger it

Today I received something new…again…till next month.




I’ve been waiting for the PostDraw and is great!
The finish on the pencil feels great and the grip is smooth. The operarion reminds of the GG1000 but with a less of a kick when retracting the tip.
For me it would’ve been the best if it was like 15% bigger, length and width
