Ballpoint Twist Pens With Parker-Style Refills
You extend the refill by twisting some portion of these pens. All of these ballpoint pens take Parker-style refills, available at most office supply stores or online in a variety of different types. In addition to Broad, Medium, and Fine point, multiple color inks are available. You can also convert these pens into a rollerball-like pen by using a high quality Gel refill. My two favorite Parker-style refills are the Schmidt easyFLOW 9000M (also marketed by Private Reserve), which is a smooth-writing classic ballpoint refill, and the Monteverde Capless Gel Ballpoint Refill, especially the Blue-Black color that is a very dark blue. Private Reserve also markets a nice Gel refill.
