Customer Reviews

I like the fact that it's not a "fat" pen, which never feel right in my hand.
E. Holm
It should be remembered, that with an item like this, only time will tell how good it will be.
Tadashi
This is an attractive pen, easy to use, comfortable in my hand, and writes very nicely.

As both an amateur writer and artist, I was looking for a pen that would fulfill several roles. Here are some points on this pen from both points of view, categorized:

I just seem to like fountain pens, despite my young age. Also, if anyone wants to know why I'd use a fountain pen over a dip pen for drawing, its the mobility - I can use them anywhere.

2.) Ink - width, cartridge-loading, converter & bottle-loading: Ever since I first used a rollerball as opposed to a normal ballpoint, I loved the strong, black line that some of them gave. It made my work stand apart from others. Fountain pens are even better. The stroke this pen gives is a powerful, thick black (assuming, of course, that black ink is used! I'm willing to bet that for those who like, for example, blue, that this would look beautiful with blue ink. =:o).

When used with the provided Cross black ink cartridges (I bought some extras), it goes on fluid & slick, and dries quickly.

I also used the pen with Higgins Fountain Pen India - a non-waterproof bottled ink formulated for fountain pens (you'd still NEVER want to use normal India ink - this one was made to be fountain-pen safe!). Despite what some folks say, works quite well in this pen without gumming it up (it doesn't have the shellac normally in India ink, which destroys pens. That makes it the best of both worlds)!

The Higgins ink - while it requires a bit more nib-flushing than the Cross ink (mainly for cosmetic reasons) - writes quite well, drying quickly. On the paper types I tried it on, it also seems to be a slightly deeper black, and doesn't bleed through quite as badly - making it better for the heavy ink saturation used in drawing.

Reviewed using the Cross converter and Waterman Florida Blue ink: On inexpensive copier paper, this pen's medium point writes smoothly and wet, and has never skipped. It starts instantly after days capped, and is weighted and sized perfectly for an adult man, with an excellent grip. The converter is screw-in, a safety deal all converters should use. The section and barrel threads are metallic finished - if not all metal - with the threads not too loose or fine. The very slight closed-cap looseness doesn't effect performance. Posted, it looks much more expensive than it is, at current Amazon prices! Lifetime warrantee.

Recently purchased this pen and I am absolutely loving it. Starts smoothly every time, writes amazingly well. It looks every bit as beautiful as it does in the pictures. The medium nib lays a fairly heavy line, at least with the Cross/Pelikan black ink. I prefer my pens this way.

One comment...This is a thin pen, at least by fountain pen standards. Some people complain that thinner pens cause hand fatigue/cramping more quickly, but this is strictly a personal opinion. I like the slimmer body. The Cross ATX is a comparable pen with a slightly wider body -- also a great pen.

Shortly after receiving it, I noticed the nib assembly seemed to be loose in the barrel. I was able to hand tighten it, but every now and then I would find it loose again. This proved to be an annoyance, and a flaw which I would not expect from a quality pen such as Cross.

However, today, when I went to use it, I discovered the nib assembly has completely unscrewed from the barrel, and is now lodged inside the cap. I'm sending it back to Cross. Although their guanantee states FREE replacement, their website talks about a "processing fee". When a manufacturer produces a faulty product, I don't expect to pay a processing fee to get them to honor their guanantee.

=============================================================================================

The supply DID NOT CONTAIN the "Screw-in Style Cartridge/Bottled Ink Converter" AS PROMISED.

I am the biggest fan of amazon.com but am extremely disappointed with the inability to contact the customer service to supply the missing item. I do not buy the item to return but want to use them right away unless they can not be used. The pen with cartridges can be used but it definitely frustrates to receive incomplete supplies. I hope someone listens and takes care of the issue.

I started using fountain pens because I tend to write a lot, and the fountain pen is much easier on my hand. After going through a disposable Pilot fountain pen every day, I decided to buy a real pen. I'm fairly modest, so while I wanted a pen that looked good, I didn't need something very gaudy to fish complements. I also wanted something made entirely out of metal, since I don't trust plastic-bodied pens. After much searching, I decided to go with this pen.

As a first time fountain pen owner, I didn't know exactly what a converter was. It's a ink reservoir to use bottled ink, rather than ink cartridges. This is an absolute must. I find myself refilling the cartridge every other day or so, but after owning the pen for months now, I still enjoy refilling.

The "medium" nib is perfect. It's a little thicker than a ballpoint, and writes bold and evenly. None of the plating has faded or chipped.

I use the pen a lot. In fact, its the only pen I use. I rarely go anywhere without it, and if I do happen to leave it at home before going to the lab, I'll usually make an effort to go home and get the pen as soon as possible. It writes so well, I can't stand using anything else.
