The Old Geezer
Please Excuse My Absence

I have not blogged since July of 2015 due to the fact that my Lovely Wife was diagnosed with 2 types of cancer. A new case of breast cancer which has metastasized and gone to her bones, mainly her back. She had a mastectomy of her left breast which showed the type of cancer that was in her bones. She has been taking an oral med. every day and she has a port under her skin to receive a liquid med. She has gone through one round of radiation treatments to stop some pain in her back. That gave her GERD and the med for that was nasty tasting. The bone cancer has caused the vertebra in her lower back to pinch her left sciatic nerve causing her pain, numbness and foot drag. She also has skin cancer that has only been partly addressed.

I have been busy taking care of her as the treatments have left her weak and sickly. She can not drive so I have to drive her to her appointments and treatments. I also have to do all the cooking and most of what cleaning we do. So I do not have a lot of time for blogging. However the installment of the review of the Schaeffer Ultrafine 0.3mm pencil marks what I hope will be a new review every month. However some of my future reviews may seem familiar as they may be a review of a pencil or pen that I have reviewed before just in another size due to my limited collection of writing instruments and the economic state of our nation.

I am grateful to George Fox for wanting me to do a review of another one of his pencils. I think that as a reader of my humble blog, may fine of interest as the Schaeffer Ultra Fine is a very unusual pencil.

So please excuse my absence and as a reader of my humble blog I hope that you enjoy the review of this unique pencil.

Coming Soon...

Thank you,

The Old Geezer.

my guess is that it is a Rotring 900 (like the Altro but metal). From top to bottom, I would say Rollerball, Ballpoint and Pencil.

This looks like something in the Rotring 900 series. Have you seen the ipenstore.com? If you love Rotrings, you'll love this site!

That is Rotring 900 Series, and has shinny metal barrel. The top most is a Technical Pen. The bottom two are "Side Knock" Ballpoint Pen and Mechanical Pencil.

It is also available in matte silver finish rather than shinny. There are also Rotring 900 Rollerball and Fountain Pens.

Can't help you out with what pencil that is. I was just wondering what your favorite *metal* drafting pencil is?

Shockbeton said...

You are a rotring 900. You came in a pencil version, a ball point version, and a 'fountain pen' version which is more like a technical pen than a traditional fountain pen. You appear in the 1990 rotring catalog.

The rotring pencil is a 900 series from the 90's

I think it is a Rotring 900. It lokes like the type you can get at levenger.com

Ditto on the Rotring 900.

I have one one of the 900 ballpoints that I bought years ago. It's very nicely made, but not so nice to use. I find that it's far too heavy and is poorly balanced too.

As a pilot city, Linfen will finance 0.34 billion yuan to build LED Panel Light, LED pilot area, multi-functional pilot site and pilot tourist attractions, to retrofit street lighting, community lighting, lighting of up and down mine pits, to launch LED indoor general illumination plan.
As “ten city tan thousand” came into effect, many traditional illumination enterprises enter into LED industry, industry transformation and upgrading begins. Some traditional illumination enterprises also enter into LED research and manufacturing. Under such complicated reality, LED technology continues upgrading.
