Cherry In More Ways Than One

My friend Joe Nemecek picked this one up at the Philadelphia Show last January:


The plain clip can make these tough to place, but those who know what these are know that there’s a subtle "Chilton" imprint right near the middle joint.


However, these inlaid patterns are distinctive and definitely shout out to those who are interested in the brand:


This is one of Chilton’s "Wingflow" pencils. What makes it special are the condition, which in this case is fantastic, but more importantly the color, which collectors refer to as "cherry red" (as opposed to the more common and much more subdued maroon).
