Parker-Type G2 Refills

The 'Parker-style' ballpoint refill is actually a standard pattern refill known as the G2, and is used by many manufacturers for their ballpoint pens. It was originally created by Parker, and is best known as their refill, but it is now an ISO standard, and is used by many different pen brands. The G2 refill is 98mm long and approx 5.8mm diameter on the main barrel. They are easily recognisable by the distinctive shape and the sculpted plastic end which is used by some pen retractor mechanisms. Most have a metal barrel, though some have plastic barrels. Metal-barreled refills generally have a larger ink capacity than plastic versions as the barrel walls can be much thinner.

While the Parker version is of excellent quality, the alternatives from manufacturers such as Pelikan, Schmidt, and Schneider offer additional tip size and colour choices. A few interesting options worth noting:

  • Parker's own standard ballpoint refill has actually been discontinued (yes, we were amazed too!), so if you want ballpoint ink, you'll need to look elsewhere. It's been replaced by their 'QuinkFlow' hybrid ink refill, which is much smoother, and writes a denser line.
  • Parker, Visconti and Monteverde offer gel ink versions of this refill - with brighter, more vivid colours, at the expense of refill life.
  • The Schneider 755 Slider refill contains hybrid ink which offers fast-drying, vivid colour and extra-smooth writing - the best of both ballpoint and gel worlds - and includes the option of an extra-broad tip.
  • The Schmidt P900M has a wide array of colour options including magenta and purple, and is a great price for such a good quality refill.
  • The Schmidt Megaline P950M is a pressurised refill which turns any G2 pen into a 'space pen' - writes upside-down; in zero gravity; in very low temperatures and on greasy or damp paper.

Fun fact: the interestingly-shaped plastic part at the top of these refills was originally designed by Parker such that the mechanism would rotate the refill a quarter of a turn each time it was retracted, so the tip would get worn more evenly in use.
