Pentel is a ballpoint pen company. It was founded in Chuo, Tokyo, Japan. It has subsidiaries in America and Mexico. The name of the company combines the words pen and the word tell. It means that a the pen is telling a story. The founder of the company was Yokie Horie. He was the president of the company till his death in 2010. The only product of this company I have used is the eraser. They are in my opinion the best erasers out in the market, and I have used quite a number in my artistic career. Aside from pens and erasers, pentel has mechanical pencils, markers and whiteouts. Pentel tries to use recycled materials whenever possible.
