Clever Kaweco hack
Saturday, 21 July 2018 | Admin
A little-known fact about the Kaweco Sport rollerball pen is that the refill inside is exactly the same size and shape as a common size of ballpoint pen refill.
Here we have a red Kaweco Sport rollerball pen with its black Kaweco rollerball refill.
And now we have, the same red outer casing but with a blue ballpoint refill.
We call these ballpoint refills Parker-style refills after the most famous manufacturer of this style of refill. We stock the Parker refills and also cheaper versions by Schmidt, and Schneider.
We also keep the gas-pressurised ballpoint refills for the famous Fisher Space pens which come with a little gizmo to pop on the end that means they too mimic this style of ballpoint refill, but with the added bonus of enabling you to write upside down on the ceiling with them, on wet paper or in the zero-gravity of outer space.
