I think I might have one of those around the house, but I've also been using harness needles from my leather sewing tools, they have a blunt tip since they are designed to go through pre-pierced holes in thicker leathers.
you can also try using such a thing in your silhouette: www.amychomas.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=9 I found out that it gives better result on 90° folds if you emboss the backside of the paper and put some spare foamcore under it to give the surface some elasticity
I've found an amazing tool for "no cut" scoring - especially useful for fold-creasing glossy photo papers. No penetration, but nice clean thin embossed line:
The Kemper Tools DBSS aka Double Ball Stylus Small
You know, you actually made some of the rustier cogs turn in a dusty part of my memory: My dad used to have some tools lying around when I was a kid inthe 70's, which he never used (although we kids weren't allowed to touch them). They resembled pens, looking much like the stylus pen in your pic, but instead of the ball points, there was little wheels at the ends (the different pens had different wheel sizes and patterns). Now, my dad doesn't remember this at all! He thinks I'm remeberring wrong and it was my grampa's (he was a decorator). But my sister, my mom and myself are all certain that it was something my dad had lying around. Now, my dad was originally a building engineer, so it's possible it was some kind of drawing tool for that trade. But he also did some hobby publishing using spirit duplicator, and I have a feeling that these 'wheel pens' were meant for working with 'spirit master' paper. They looked a bit like tiny vellum wheel styluses, but without the little spikes.
Now, the reason I write this is, that I think these would be ideal for no cut scoring. Problem is - my dad has probably gotten rid of these babies. And since he doesn't remember/knock what the heck I'm talking about, I have no idea what to look for, if I want to pick up some antique ones. So, given that there's a lot of graphic artists hanging around this great forum with knowledge of terms and tools of your trade (and some of you being distinguished ex-spring chickens like myself ), I was hoping one of you might have an idea what I'm talking about, and maybe even know the name of these old school tools?

Further research seems to reinforce that theory. I found a picture of Cyclostyle wheel pens, that looks somewhat similar to the ones I'm talking about, although the pic was small, so I had to enlarge it:

Vermin King: I've decided I need to stop trying to get stuff back that I lost and get back to working on new stuff. Until work stuff gets caught up, I need to fight the rebuilding aspect.

bravesirkevin: @vermin King, you should still be able to download the stuff you purchased from me again, if that helps. If you have any issues, just drop me a direct message and I'll send through whichever ones you can't download

Vermin King: And none of the Streetpaper Advent models were in there, and only seven of bravesirkevin's figures are in there, and none of my purchased ones... And the old Canon kid's models are still beyond reach

Vermin King: I feel less 'at a complete loss', now. I found a thumb drive of 'Papercraft'. Not sure how old it is, but it does have the Zio models, old Streetpaper, old Canon and HP models, etc. Now it is just an overwhelming loss
