Which DNA polymerase (commercially available) can initiate polymerization at nicks, without a standard primer?
My goal is to perform rolling circle amplification starting at a nick.

It sounds like you are looking for a DNA polymerase that can perform nick translation. NEB maintains a chart listing the properties of their polymerases, including nick translation and extension from nick. Without additional details, it looks like Taq would work for your purpose.
