Does anyone have any experience of the Sanford Redington Refillable Rolling Ball?   It had a traditional torpedo shape and came in various finishes.  I'm guessing it would have dated from the 80s or 90s.   I'm familiar with Sanford from the ink of that name, which I presume was an early product of the same company.  Sanford Corporation seems to have acquired many great brands before itself being swallowed up by what is now Newell (of Rubbermaid fame).  But try as I might I can't seem to find any information about Redington pens - or indeed any other "modern" Sanford pen.

I don't know much, but I'm sure they were discontinued in the mid 80's or maybe sooner. I found my first when I worked at my college bookstore back in around 92-93ish. My boss said he'd had it for a long time and they weren't made anymore. It was a blue marbled rollerball, which I think is the most common.
