1. Sheaffer C Style Jumbo Ballpoint Pen Refill

Sheaffer C Style Jumbo Ballpoint Pen Refill

The original Sheaffer C Style ballpoint pen refill is quite hard to find as it has now been replaced with the Cross Selectip Jumbo ballpoint pen refill.

If you call Sheaffer customer service and say that you can’t find these refills then they will advise you to use the Cross refills.

If you look at the product code it is a bit of a giveaway as they have literally added SH to the end of the code.

Another clue is that most of the original Sheaffer product codes start with a 9 and all Cross Pens product codes start with an 8.

6. Sheaffer Ballpoint Pens Using Cross Classic Refill

Sheaffer Branded Cross Classic Refill

In the next couple of sections, this is where things get a little more complicated with the tie-up between AT Cross & Sheaffer.

There are a couple of Sheaffer ballpoint pens that can only be refilled with Cross Classic ballpoint pen refills.

To add to the confusion, they list this refill on their website as a Sheaffer ballpoint refill C style when another of their refills has the same description. I would be having serious words with their management I get C style means from Cross but to use the same name two different refills really?

The ballpoint pens that are refilled with Cross Classic ballpoint pen refills are:

  • Sheaffer Award ballpoint pens
  • Sheaffer Defini ballpoint pens
  • Sheaffer Pop ballpoint pens

Cross Classic Ballpoint Pen Refills Ink Colors and Tip Sizes

7. Sheaffer Rollerball Pens Using Cross Selectip Gel Refill

Sheaffer Branded Cross Selectip Gel Refill

To give them their official name these are known as a Sheaffer Gel Rollerball Refill C style. In fact, they are made by AT Cross and branded as a Sheafer refill.

The rollerball pens that are refilled with Cross Selectip Gel refills are:

  • Sheaffer Award rollerball pens
  • Sheaffer Defini rollerball pens
  • Sheaffer Pop rollerball pens

These are getting harder to find but Sheaffer did make replacement stylus tips for their pens,

They were supplied as a pack of three Sheaffer product code 86720.

16. Where Can I Buy Cheap Sheaffer Refills From?

You can buy Sheaffer Pen refills from numerous online stores. Although they may not have the full range to choose from.

If you buy directly from The Sheaffer Website then you know that you are getting a genuine Sheaffer refill. But you will pay the full retail price for it.

Amazon is as good as anywhere and sometimes it is a bit cheaper if you buy twin or triple packs.

Buy Sheaffer Refills on Amazon

  1. It has a refill with a plastic colour coded end- the shape is a cone bisected by a square with a side slightly longer than the base of the cone…..

  2. I’m looking for the right refill for what I think is a Sheaffer Imperial. It was a gift in 1974. It’s silver with a grapevine pattern. Please help.

    Thanks
