For some reason, the Sanford division of Rubbermaid Newell bought rotring in 2000 and turned the direction of the company away from professional products and directly toward the ground, producing such things as the rotring Core, which was obviously designed by an athletic shoe designer who was fired from Reebok for trying way to hard. The Core line seems to have been engineered for the specific purpose of adding color to the clearance bins of stationers and has never been seen anywhere not on sale.
