Parted red refill / stationary

Parted red refill

When people using propelling pencil, it always happens that they
do not know whether the refill is used up or not. People will go
through different behaviors to check.

For instances: keep pressing the pen cap, or opening pen cap to
check whether there is refill or not. So we improve the pen refill to
be designed with a red part at the end which can remind the user
when it is about to run out, so as to replenish it immediately .
