I'm looking for a refillable ink pen that I can use for years to come.

I've been buying a Dr. Grip Gel
pens every few months. They break or fail for various reasons, so I seldom wind up actually buying refills for them. This seems dumb. THEREFORE, I'm looking for a reliable refillable pen that I can carry in my pocket every day. It should probably be made of some kind of metal for durability and it should be easy to find refills for it.
I used to have a Rotring Quattropen, which was a cool gadget with how it had black ink, red ink, a highlighter, and a mechanical pencil all in one device, but the refills weren't super easy to find and the black painted shaft got all scratched up in my pocket and it wound up looking cheap. Also I feel like gel pens are pretty nice, but I could be convinced to go with something else. I'm not terribly price sensitive, but I'm looking for a writing tool and not a status symbol or a piece of jewelry.
