Japanese 1979 Mitsubishi Boxy Ballpoint Pen


If one imagined (Japanese) stationery history to be an academic subject then this pen, the Boxy, first made in 1979, would have to be included in the class textbook. Indeed Mitsubishi one of the two main rival companies with Tombow, originally manufacturing pencils from the late 19th century, begun producing ballpoint pens in 1961, long after Ohto which produced the first Japanese ballpoint pen in 1949. 

Just like No. 460 and No. 550, from Mitsubishi also, this is a very good disposable pen especially you fancy yourself living in the 80s. 

Writes with a 0.7mm line, thin and precise.
