Hi all, 

 

This rollerball was my dad's and he used to write with it quite a bit. There's no branding in it. I don't know how old it is, but my dad passed away 6 years ago and there's still a hauser bill 707 sf in it. I'd venture to guess it's mid-to-late 90s. He wasn't much of a pen guy, but he enjoyed writing with this one.

 

I don't know much about rollerball pens. It looked like a Waterman to me, but I can't find it. Any help would really be appreciated!

 

Thank you!

Edit 2: It was gifted to him in the late 90s while we were living in Russia. My mom thinks she recalls it being a Parker, but isn't sure.

The pattern design on the pen makes me think of an Ohto rollerball, but I can't confirm it.

Thank you for the reply! I'll look into Ohto after work and see if I can find something to match.

I'm fairly certain my dad was gifted this pen by a business partner, but he seemed to write with it more than other pens he was gifted which were from well-known manufacturers. I'll ask my mom whether she knows what country and when he was gifted it at least, in case it's a local manufacturer. It's a nice pen and I plan to hang on to it due to sentimental reasons, but I'm curious as to what it may be.
