Recently received a couple of relatively ‘serious’ looking Colleen MPs and their resemblance to the Fuji Corona series of drafting pencils is uncanny.
Love those K-502s, and I’m getting the same vibes from this comparison that I get from comparing the aluminum-bodied Mitsubishi Automatic Pencil to the Lion 3250.
Yes and yes. I neither recognized the similarities between the JIB Extra (I think I don’t have one) nor the ones between Lion 32x0 and Mitsubishi Automatic, but both of you are right!
I don’t know how large Lion’s manufacturing was (they still exist About us, History and Company profile of Lion Office Products Corp.), but maybe Mitsubishi produced the nice Lion pencils?
