Like others have commented elsewhere

Despite going out of production about 15 years ago, the Rotring 600 ballpoint pen was apparently rereleased for the domestic Japanese market in late 2017. This is a new production pen, made in Japan.

Rotring 600 mechanical pencil review

Being super excited I bought all the recommended parker style refills (easyFLOW, Jetstream PRIME, etc...) coming into this knowing that the rOtring 1.0 "medium" ballpoint was not a fan favorite. But to my sho...

The Rotring 600 is great option. I feel my Rotring Rapid Pros are a little less fragile.

My personal favorite is the Platinum Pro-Use. Larger silver ones like (MSD-1500B)The body size also matches the Lamy 2000 better. Check it out!
