Brand: Mitsubishi Pencil Co.
Made in: Japan
Older Mitsubishi 9800 with the pre-2008 JIS mark...also in the harder-to-find high B range. Shows the word Patented before it was replaced by Matured on the newer version.
Founded in 1887 and formerly known as Masaki Yomato, Mitsubishi Pencil Co., Ltd. is best-known today for its “uni” brand of quality writing instruments sold worldwide. Curiously, this Tokyo-based business is unrelated to Mitsubishi Motors and other brands within the Mitsubishi Group. Same name, same logo, completely different company.
