Question Pen kit sourcing

My dad has some walnut that he salvaged from the remodel of his office because do sentimental value. He has asked metro make him a pen/pencil set for I'm out of the salvaged wood. Here is the hard part. He wants a pencil, ballpoint, rollerball and fountain pen that match. I can only find 3 out of 4 in any kit.

Does anyone know of a style of kit that will give me all four items?

Thanks in advance.

Oh that is easy.

Ball point Jr: Gentlemen's twist.
Pencil Jr: Gentlemen's twist with a pencil mechanism.
Rollerball: Gentlemen Jr
Fountain pen: Gentlemen Jr.

There are others too...
Triton Ballpoint - Parker style so this can also do the pencil.
Triton RB & FP

Atrax ballpoint (pen/pencil), RB & FP

Broadwell Nouveau Sceptre bp (pen/pencil), RB & FP

Broadwell Art Deco bp (p/p), RB & FP

The only real trick is using a parker refill style pencil mechanism in a ballpoint pen kit.
The rest just depends on the style you want.

Default Thanks

Thank you for the quick reply.

I am assuming that you are referring to the craft supplies catalog. As I was looking at their catalog, I did not see the pencil kit in that style.

Could you clarify, or give me an alternate sources for this style?

Pencil is a cartridge replacement.

Forgive my ignorance, but can you explain what you mean by a cartridge replacement. I am accustomed to just buying a kit and not applying different parts.
