Looking for refills for my pens, from korea .38mm, Hello Kitty

So I LOVE my Hello Kitty pens. They are super fine and .38mm, I know that there has to be somewhere online where I can buy refills- I have gone to morningglory, and jetpens. No luck. thanks. I hate to keep buying new pens when I can get ink refills.

A picture of or link to info about your specific pen would help; I've spent my share of time in Sanrio stores and have probably seen over a hundred different Hello Kitty pens.

Muji might have what you're looking for, as they have many .38mm pens and refills.

Ok, so these appear to be bulk/wholesale pens, sold by the manufacturer, then branded with Hello Kitty and resold. So, they could be from any manufacturer, and you'd need the manufacturer/model to get a refill (unless also sold by the reseller). This one you linked looks like it could be a Uniball Signo. If so, this is the refill.

If you don't need the Hello Kitty-ness of it, the above-linked Signo and the Pilot G-Knock come in 0.38mm and are great pens, with refills available. Maybe just get those and affix some hello kitty stickers?

Seconding Muji. I don't know if the refills will fit Hello Kitty pens, but they are an absolute pleasure to write with.
