Also to know is, how do you refill a twist mechanical pencil?

Subsequently, question is, how do you take apart a Parker mechanical pencil?
Unscrew the tip of the mechanical pencil from the pencil body. Check for any obstruction by holding it up to the light. If you can see the light clearly, the tip is clear; if not, you’ll need to remove the obstruction. Press a clean-out rod through hole in the front of the tip until you reach the obstruction.
