Vermilion / Prussian Blue 772 + Sticker

Brand: Mitsubishi Pencil Co.

Made in: Japan

I’ve placed this one in “likely vintage” as I really don’t know how old it is. The pre-2005 JIS mark assures us it was not made anytime in the last 15+ years. The extra kanji or Japanese writing gives it a nice look.

Fun fact: when sharpening this pencil you’ll discover that during the manufacturing process the entire body was first painted red, then half was painted blue.

About Mitsubishi Pencil Co.

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.
