If not: here’s a quick recap. Uniqlo has a series of t-shirts called “The Brands”. As part of this series, Uniqlo cooperates with international brands. Last time this included Pelikan and Tombow.
Well, the new Uniqlo t-shirt season has begun – and there are, again, stationery related t-shirts.
This time: Bic and Pentel.
Japan has more large sized t-shirts available for the new series, but ordering from Japan might not be necessary… when I checked Uniqlo UK I saw that this time they stock three of the four stationery related t-shirts.
I’d like to thank Yumiko for this information.

Well, the title ‘paper engineering’ certainly got my attention A wiki I started in 2006 was initially a collection of cut out sheets from a German comic magazine. when I visited the raspberrypi.org website during my lunch break.
For the monetarily less disadvantaged there’s a solution. Bleistift.blog reader Andy from Leeds told me about this solution recently. Bridge City, an American store selling woodworking tools, has a pencil making kit (with extras) for $593.75. For the less well off there’s even a finance option available. You can also get blanks, ferrules and leads from them.
Here’s a video from them where they make a pencil that has a cunning resemblance to the Graf von Faber-Castell pencils. A Pencil Precision Perfect Pencil Copy.
Combine this with a spent shell casing as shown in the Fake News and you’re pretty close to owning a Graf von Faber-Castell Eine Cassette * hochfeiner Taschenbleistifte * Nr. II, versilbert.
With such a blog post I can’t resist showing this video:
The All Things Brass blog has launched recently, but I have the feeling that despite the owner’s fame in the knife community his blog is still undiscovered by many here in the stationery community, so I thought I point you towards this new blog that features great photography of all things brass, not only stationery.
I love the topic of his blog and hope that brass stationery is here to stay. As mentioned in the past some manufacturers, even those using lead-free brass, have stopped making some items of stationery that contain brass, because new rules in some markets mean expensive paperwork (which makes these fairly low-cost items unviable).
