First developed in 1946, Cross Classic Century writing implements are icons of mid-century modern design. These writing implements feature a trim, elegant design that combines a beautiful black satin finish with jewelry-quality details, like appointments plated in 23 karat gold. Additionally, both implements feature the Cross trademark conical top and rest comfortably in your hand to make smooth, professional writing easy to achieve.

This set includes one black medium ball-point refill, five 0.7mm pencil leads, and a pencil eraser to get you started. For added versatility, Cross offers a range of ball-point refill sizes and colors.

I tried to like it, I really did. I thought other reviews were exaggerated because the pens aren't manufactured in the US anymore. But as soon as I held the pens in my hand they felt like plastic! The quality is not there anymore (I guess it's been this way from the time they started manufacturing the pens in china!
The pens don't have the same sturdiness and feel like they used to. The weight they used to have is also not there anymore. Cross should be ashamed. This isn't an American product anymore but a low quality cheap Chinese one. Congratulations Cross.

Before you buy, be sure to check where the pen was made. I have a number of older Cross pens that say "USA" near the top, and they are great pens. However, I have bought three different ones in the past few years that do not indicate where they were made, and they are of inferior quality. The top and bottom halves are loose, and have to be carefully manipulated to come together without a gap. The first one I got, I sent it back to Cross for warranty repair under their "lifetime guarantee," only to receive it back unchanged telling me that it was just fine - and a "handling fee" attached.

I was willing to believe it was simply an anomaly, one bad pen. So later on when some new colors came out, I bought two more - only to see that they have the same quality defect.

My advice: if you want a good Cross pen, go to the secondhand store and buy one that was made in USA. They aren't making them the same anymore.

I have been using Cross product for lat 15 years. This product which is Made in China, has highly disappointed me. The finish of the pen is very poor. Gold plating is of a poor quality. It has some patches of a different color. The body has sharp edges.

Overall it has spoilt my impression about Cross products.

I'm not sure if I just received a defective pen or what happened. My general experience with Cross pens has been very positive. This one, however, is awful. It doesn't write smootly and leaves ink everywhere.

Style Name: Ballpoint Pen and Pencil SetColor: Classic Black Verified Purchase
The manufacturer is distributing a different pen/pencil set than the one illustrated and described. Cosmetically the pens are a flat black -- could be mistaken for grey; but more importantly the "pencil" is not the typical cross .05mm pencil. It is a pen/pencil combo -- you can put either an ink cartridge in it (for 2 pens, who knows why) or a special .07mm lead cartridge -- not individual leads, but a self contained cartridge physically similar to an ink cartrdige -- to use it as a pencil. Of course, you can't tell them apart when you pull one out of your pocket. One has to twist it and see what comes out - the pen or the pencil (or other pen if you go that way).

This happened to me at another large retailer (large web, lots of physical stores) so it looks like Cross is doing a number on people. Major, major disappointment.

Good luck!

I have decided that a good writing instrument in the pocket is the cost of doing business in my line of work. This lightweight, thin Cross pen helps me not look back.

The black satin finish is very nice, the writing quality is good for an entry-level fine pen, and the gold appointments complement clothing in the earth color range.

I ruin about a shirt per year via ink leaks. This pen is not going to do that.

A very handsome, economical, solid-value product from Cross.

I have quite an extensive collection of Vintage Cross pens from the 1950's and 1960's.
I had a pen and pencil set of this Cross Century from 1976 that started slipping after many years of use.
So, I sent it in to Cross get repaired. Turns out they didn't have the parts so they replaced my pair with this new Chinese set.
I was HORRIFIED. It was so light and cheap, the two parts of the pen and pencil don't sit well together, the engraved "grip" mark is gone, its slipperly to the touch, and worse of all, NOT USA MADE. They're not the high quality pens they used to be.

I'm hanging on dearly to my 20+ vintage cross pens more than ever.
Do yourself a favor if you plan on buying this new chinese cross set.
Go to ebay and get a vintage usa made Cross set for 15 bucks. You'll love the high quality vintage usa made Cross sets.
