Schmidt P8120 Capless Rollerball Pen Refill

This is Schmidt’s short, capless rollerball refill in 1.0 mm. Schmidt’s rollerball refills are awesome, but they are quite wide (6.9 mm), which limits their application in pens not designed specifically for it, especially Japanese pens that use the thinner Pilot G2-style refill.

The P8120 is a capless rollerball refill in 1.0 mm. What does that mean?

  • Will not dry out for up to one year with the cap off
  • Rollerball style body
  • “P” means it’s a short rollerball style, 108.9 mm in length
  • Suitable for a Retro 51 Tornado, Montblanc M, Rotring, Monteverde, Marlin, Delta, Krone, Yafa, Lamy and many other European style pens
  • 1.0 mm is broad. It’s a very wet writer

These are great rollerball refills, but finding a pen for them that isn’t over $50 can be a challenge.
