Hi all, I should first apologise for the title but I could not come up with a better one. I am no expert whatsoever with stationery and pens in particular. However, I have found this pen that was gifted to me some 10 years back and I would like to put it back to work. It's a 4in1 but I had somehow lost the tip of the 0.7mm mechanical pencil and I need to replace the red and the blue as they are quire awful. The black at the moment is the only one usable.

Is anyone able to tell me the following:

1) which kind of refill am I looking for in terms of type and size (I have put a classic Bic besides if it is of any help) and also which brands that make them are good?
2) Is it possible to "restore" the pencil?

Thank you

I was wondering that too - you can't tell from the pics - there aren't that many standards for multi-pen refills. I

Looks like the pen elements will be easy enough but the pencil will be considerably more difficult. The pencil mechanism seems to be part of the frame for the 'multi-system' on the two pens of this type I have. Makes sense considering pencil lead loading is still done via the top cap. I'm not sure you can change the pencil head without a complete change of the internals?

Fair point - I don't own a multi-pen - I'd rather have three pens and a pencil :) - if the lead loads from the top - yes - that is going to be a problem - it is not really a refill in the way the ink ones are. Best turn it over to Cult Pens - they will know. I.
