I've been looking for something similar - old cyclostyle wheel pens for stencil, which are very similar to what you found. I was convinced they'd be ideal for scoring, and it looks like I was right. Just haven't been able to find any yet myself.
I've got a set like that, but handles are wooden. Other things I've found that work pretty well include a regular dinner knife (no sharp edge) and a penknife turned around - using the /back of the blade/, not the handle
They come as a 3 pack and double ended with a total of 6 different tip sizes, and there's even grips! I have been experimenting with several different tools, and these outperform them all so far
Those are actually amazing for scoring. I find the work best when scoring on the side that will be the inside of the fold.
If you're wondering what their actual purpose is, they're for embossing. You get these plastic stencils that you lay under the page and then you vigorously rub the back of the page with the tool to cause the paper to be embossed into the shape of the stencil. Spent a lot of time contemplating how this could be used to add textures and raised detail to the paper models I've created, but I can't think of a good way to design the stencils... Perhaps it could be easily achieved using a Silhouette to cut out the stencils required from a suitably stiff material.
mproteau: I can now access my models! I think it was just waiting for me to return to work... Sketchup didn't want me wasting any of my vacation time, but my WORK time is a whole other story.

mproteau: Ugh. Just got back from vacation, refreshed and ready to make progress. I go to load my sketchup reference model (which I had done at work, so I used the online sketchup version) and... "Sorry, we seem to be having problems looking up your models."

squirmydad: I disabled the PostImage button and found a cute workaround for the broken images, things should be okay again.

squirmydad: New "Add Image" button added, not Postimage, some place called imgbb, seems to work, go try to break it while we wait on postimage to get their act together.

Vermin King: don't freak out about the edits... just cc'ing the org's

Vermin King: Well, changing 'postimage.org' to 'postimage.cc' allows an image to show (I was wondering if the codes migrated, and it works). There isn't a way to do something in the forum code making that switch forum-wide is there?

Vermin King: I wonder why postimg.cc is working and postimg.org isn't. Why wouldn't they work off the same platform, unless they changed their user agreement...

lightning: With all the problems with the new Win10 update (pics on the forum and photoshop) I really wonder how a) MS tests their updates and b) how application developers program these days that an update can have these effects?!?

oldschooldm: Is there a way we can poke the server to make this substitution automatically?

oldschooldm: postimg.cc seems to be working, but postimg.org isn't.

cowboyleland: I am currently in the process of recovering from the latest update. I have to wonder how much productivity the averaged windows update sucks out of the world. I have no news on Tomoko coreyhaim8mydog
