May I make an enquiry?  I have one of the newer Parker Facet Triopens that are based on the original Rotring 600 or perhaps Newton?  Forgive me if I have wrong.  All I would like to know is how do I replace the refills in the Trio style pen.  I understand that they are D1 refills.  Do they unscrew?  What about the pencil section?  Is that a disposable item or is it refilled with standard MP leads?  


I will say that these new Parker incarnations of the original Rotring are not of very good quality at all.  What on earth is going on with Parker these days?

Thanks to yr guide, Ive understood that what I purchased on ebay as a (used) Rotring 600 fountain pen is actually a Rotring Newton (with a Fine steel nib)

My problem is that I have not been able to get this pen to write fluently. Ive flushed it, aligned the tines, run brass shim stock between the tines, etc. but the pen remains a stingy, skippy, dry writer.

Someone told me that the nibs on these pens can be removed and replaced in the same way (and as easily) as the nibs on Lamy pens. Is this true?

Im hoping that installing a broader nib (a stub italic, for example) will make this pen a better writer.

Thanks for any light you can shed !
