Purple Pentel 1972 B100 Felt Tip Pen, 45 Year Anniversary Special Edition


In 2017, we celebrated 45 years since the launch of the classic and most loved B-100 (or R50 as it is known in Europe), the world's first waterbased pen, manufactured by Pentel in 1972. Oddly enough, these are hot stamped 'Pentel Ultra Fine France' for the location of the factory in Bry sur Marne, east of Paris, making Pentel the first Japanese company to produce goods in France - another mark of Pentel's innovative spirit. It is also the brand responsible for the first permanent marker, the first felt tip pen and the first ink-rollerball.
