From Top:

  • rOtring Trio (from 2000's)
  • Pilot 2+1 (2 ballpoints, 1 pencil) all steel with black etching
  • rOtring 600 Trio (knurled section)
  • Unbranded "rOtring Trio" clone.

All of these write quite well.  Mechanisms lock refills solidly into place.  The older rOtring 600 Trio is the heaviest, but the mechanism is so smooth.  The Pilot 2+1 is my favorite, so well put together and was quite affordable when it was still in production.

While browsing Kinokuniya's NYC store, the Pilot Coleto Hi-Tec C multipens caught my eye at some point. I have two of them, one holding three refills and the other four. 

 

I keep the four-refill one here at work on my desk for quick jotting of notes, messages, etc. While I like the pens, I've always found that the refills just don't seem to last very long. But they do write well. I have a mix of 0.4 and 0.5 mm lines in various office-friendly colors like dark blue, black, dark green, etc.

I enddd up getting the Pilot Coleto because I found some Snoopy versions, with special refills that had Snoopy as the lever. <3 Snoopy
