The term "D1" refers to a standard ballpoint pen refill size, which is 67 mm long and approximately 2.3mm in diameter. These refills are inside many compact pens and multi pens.



The team at JetPens has compiled a list of all our ballpoint pens and multi pens that accept D1 refills, which you can view below:

Zebra Minna Mini Ballpoint Pens with Japanese Print



Zebra Penpod Mini Keychain Pens




Zebra Mini T3 Ballpoint Pen




Tombow Pfit Clip Mini Ballpoint Pens




Zebra Sharbo X Multi Pen System




Platinum Double R3 Action Multi Pens




Platinum MWB-1000C 2 Color 0.7 mm Ballpoint Multi Pens




Platinum Double Action R3 Modern Lacquer Ballpoint Multi Pens




Platinum Double Action R3 High Quality Wood 2 Color 0.7 mm Ballpoint Multi Pen + 0.5 mm Pencil




Platinum Double 3 Action Transparent Body 2 Color 0.7 mm Ballpoint Multi Pen + 0.5 mm Pencil

Platinum Double 3 Action Multi Pens




Rotring Tikky 3 in 1 2 Color 0.7 mm Ballpoint Multi Pen + 0.5 mm Pencils



Since all of these pens use the same size refills, this means that you can interchange them. For example, you can use the smooth gel ink refills from the Sharbo X line inside your favorite Platinum Double 3 Action multi pen!

To refill the eraser component in the Pilot Hi-Tec-C Coleto Multi Pen you just need to insert the refill eraser into the tip of the multi pen!

First, make sure that you are clicking down on the tab for the eraser component before inserting the eraser refill. If the tab is not clicked down, you will not be able to fully install the eraser refill. Insert the side with the little plastic rod first.


While holding down the eraser component tab, insert the eraser refill all the way until it stops.


The new refill should stop with a little bit of the eraser tip left out, when the tab is still clicked. Now you are ready to start erasing again!

Some of us are afraid of commitment... with writing that is! For those of us who want to be able to correct any writing or notes we make on the go, JetPens has compiled a list of our best compact pencils for your perusal!

Pilot Dr. Grip XS Mini Mechanical Pencils
The Pilot Dr. Grip Putimo Mini Mechanical Pencils are a great way to carry around something that can erase.


Zebra Mini Mechanical Pencils
This is another great small mechanical pencil, which is slim enough to fit in a wallet like its inked counterpart.


Ohto Tasche Mechanical Pencils
These little Ohto pencils are a great addition to the Tasche design line of writing tools, and make a good match to their ballpoint pen counterparts.

The black Kuretake Manga ink is not only waterproof, but stands up well to alcohol based markers and other water based inks as well. We did our own test here at JetPens using a water brush, Copic Sketch Marker - Yellow Green, and a Uni-ball Signo DX UM-151 Gel Ink Pen - 0.5 mm - Orange.

As long as it is able to dry completely, the Kuretake Manga Ink is completely waterproof, and will work beautifully with watercolor washes and other water-based inks.


It also performed wonderfully to the Yellow Green Copic Sketch Marker we used. Remember, it WILL smudge if you draw on it with these markers before the Kuretake ink is fully dry.


Here is our final recap:
