Topic tags/keywords: pen question tip

I know I messed up the name. Don’t want them coming after me or LJ for usuing the actual name but I’m sure all you pen turners and most everyone else know what I’m refering to. I have a friend that wants one of my pens, saw one of the “MB Style” kits but didn’t want it when he found out it uses Cross refills. I said huh? Not as if Cross is a second rate pen. But he is an Attorney and I guess he has appearances to keep up. I know they do right extremely well and have wondered this before. But with Parker and Cross options, I never really worried about it. Is there a kit that is made for but just doesn’t mention MB by name because of how tightly they protect it? Or any that can be modified (and still perform to the same quality). I’ve heard mixed reviews on some Euro/Desiginer 8MM rollerball, but it still lists Cross as the refill. Is it the designer rollerball that requires the step drill bits? Any others? Really want Blk TN but Gold will do if that is only option.

Any ideas?

I don’t know of any kits that use the MB refill. I did a search and I found this site. I don’t know if it will work or not, because their don’t say what refill it uses. I guess you can call them.

I probably asked the wrong question but I found the answer regardless. Just for the archives…..I know the kits themselves don’t come with MB refills, I was actually looking for a kit that would accept one without modification. I found the Baron/Navigator etc….stlye rollerball works. But I actually like the refill that comes with the kit better. But that’s just me. I’ll still put the MB refill in the ones I give as gifts (and keep the kit refills for myself)
