Pentel P209 0.9mm (with 2B lead).
Where and how is it used?
I use it every day for taking notes, sketching things and spinning around during extended periods of contemplation.
What did you or someone else pay for it?
Why do you want to add it to the museum?
Its subtle clean lines and functionality are infectious. So much so that people keep walking off with it. I don't judge the pencil stealers, I just buy a new one. After all something of such quality should be enjoyed by all. If it were in a museum it could be appreciated by everyone, safely seated behind glass. Until then - please stop stealing my pencil.
