When Joe Nemecek and I got together last month, we made sure to get a few pictures of some of the Eagles Joe has been turning up lately. First, he managed to score another of the goliath Eagle Automatic pencils:
I wrote about my red example a couple years ago (http://leadheadpencils.blogspot.com/2012/05/will-gentleman-from-bulgaria-please.html); here it was compared to a normal Automatic:
I’ve heard of the black ones running around, but this is the first time I’ve had the opportunity to see one in person.
And Joe had one other pencil on hand for us to shoot:
Same shaped nose, but this one is no Automatic:
"Eagle Pencil Co. / Wizard / Pat. Applied For" Unfortunately, I have no idea to which of the myriad of Eagle patents this applies. But with a cool name like "Wizard," who cares?
