The pen is not the quality of the ones Cross used to make here. It is lighter in weight. The Century is a thin pen and when they were heavier the weight gave the pen a good balance in your hand to offset the thinness. The twist action is also not as smooth as the older pens and its action feels like an older well used pen, meaning it turns very easily and doesn't have the firm feedback formerly associated with the Century pens. Others have complained here about the top and bottom of the pen not lining up. When you remove the top and replace it, it leaves a gap that you cannot eliminate no matter how hard you push the top back in. I discovered a trick to rectify this. With the top removed turn the inner cylinder such that the cartridge is now extended in writing position. Put the pen under good light and line up the stripes on the top with those on the barrel. Push the top down and it will fit tightly eliminating the gap that was formerly present. One shouldn't have to go through these sorts of gymnastics, but it is what it is.
There have also been a number of complaints about the current Cross refills. The one that came in my pen writes smoothly and I have no complaints. I have used Fisher Space refills in my other Cross pens so I know there are other good options available.
All in all this is a pretty good pen. I deducted a star due to its lighter weight and having to do the work around to get rid of the gap between the top and barrel.Read more ›
To the point, the area that connects the top and bottom gold twist sections of the pen DO NOT ALIGN properly when twisting the pen to release and retract the refill cartridge. The raised and uneven area of the pens surface catches on my dress shirt pockets. (more annoying than anything else)
Secondly and more importantly, the pens inner barrel that houses the refill is LOOSE within the pens gold filled outer shell. I have tried tightening the pen several times. When holding and moving the pen gently form finger to finger or hand to hand, the user can both feel and hear the barrels movement as it moves from side to side. THIS IS NOT THE QUALITY ONE EXPECTS WHEN PAYING $150!!!!!!!
I have 2 other gold filled cross pens that are perfect and quite enjoyable to use, so I know that there is a quality issue with this pen. I now know that Cross has been manufacturing their pens in CHINA since 2006 at least. I even went out to CULMER PENS in Mississauga Ontario to exchange the pen outright with another of the exact type. It too had the same issues with it so I opted to keep the one I had. They too AGREED with me that the QUALITY of the 18KT pen they had in their possession, as well as mine, did not match the sample USA made 10KT Cross pen I brought along with me for reference.
I should return the pen as it is a disappointment but I feel its more of a hassle than anything else to ship it back to Amazon. Its really not even Amazon's fault but I am going to email Cross detail my complaint to them. I dont expect anything back form them.Read more ›
While these are still acceptable as least it is branded as a cross pen. But after the 10th month I owned this pen (From Oct 5, 2009 to Aug 28, 2010), I really question if this is a REAL cross pen. The small top cap right above the text 'CROSS' just dropped off from the pen, luckily it happened in my home so I can find it anyway.
I have more than 5 cross pens for daily usage, and this one has not been used very often from day one. how come the structure of this pen is so fragile!! Is this a REAL cross pen?????
Bottom line: do NOT deserves the money!!!!!
