These are the so called "short slim metal refills", and these were the standard for most of the European brand pens for decades since the invention of the ballpoint pen, mainly used on multi color pens but in some cases on single color pens. They are still used today on many new ballpoint pens, i.e. the Rotring "Side Knock" uses these refills.

At UberPens, Schneider is one of our most beloved brands. German quality at it's best. Schneider produces some of the best office supplies and office level writing instruments in Europe. However their office supplies, such as refill, cartridges and other replacement units in many cases surpass even the highest quality. Schneider is one of the leading world innovators in the writing instruments, both in mechanics and chemicals of writing stuff, they are even responsible for today standardization of refills, as they were the first to set standards in size and form factors. The company was founded in 1938 producing screws, but after the war they started to produce pen refills. They were one of the first in Europe to do so, and some of the biggest pen manufacturers in Europe outsourced their refill manufacturing to Schneider. They became one of the best and most recognized brand in Germany, everyone had a Schneider refill in their pen, they produced billions (yes, with a B) refills per year. The other super important thing we care at UberPens is the environment. This is why Schneider is our No.1 brand when it comes to that.
