This is Schmidt’s short, capless rollerball refill in 0.6 mm. Schmidt’s rollerball refills are excellent, but they are quite wide, which limits their application in pens not designed specifically for it, especially Japanese pens that use the thinner Pilot G2-style refill.
The P8126 is a capless rollerball refill in 0.6 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, Pelikan, Rotring, Lamy and many other European style pens
- 0.6 mm is fine, but being European and a rollerball it’s still putting a lot of ink on the page
It’s worth noting that the Schmidt refills in this line are quite wide: 6.9 mm in outer diameter! This prevents them from being used in many narrower pens, and means they are more usefully with higher-end European pens.
