CLASSIC CENTURY COLLECTION
An icon of American design and innovation.

The Ballpoint is the most popular tip technology and in many ways the simplest.
A Ballpoint pen uses a small rotating ball made of carbide to disperse ink as you write. This ball acts as a buffer between the material you’re writing on and the ink inside the pen. The ball rotates freely and rolls out the ink as it is continuously fed from the ink reservoir. Ballpoint Pens are not capped, but instead retract and store via a rotating mechanism in the barrel. Low maintenance and easily refillable, the Ballpoint Pen is the option for the everyday pen user.
SELECTIP ROLLERBALL PEN
Our most versatile tip technology is proprietary to Cross, and is known as Selectip Rolling Ball. A Selectip allows you to “select” the kind of refill you want to use in this writing instrument from the following options:
*GEL ROLLING BALL: A mix of Ballpoint ease of use and the elegance of Fountain Pen ink-flow
*JUMBO BALLPOINT: Ballpoint technology with a bolder, fuller write-out
*POROUS POINT: (most commonly known as a Flair or Marker Point) The inks in a roller ball are generally aqueous based. This results in a smoother, fluid (or wet) lay-down of ink similar to a Fountain Pen. Aqueous based inks, due to their fine fluidity, also tend to dry out quicker, thus care must be taken to always cap, or retract, Selectip pens between uses. Unlike Ballpoint Pens, most Selectip Pens have a separate cap which prevents the ink from drying during storage.
One of the oldest styles of writing instrument, fountain pen nibs actually adapt to your own personal grip and writing style over time, creating lines on the page that — like your signature — are all your own. Ink flows by capillary action from an ink reservoir to the fountain pen nib, which is the delicate split metal mechanism which contacts the paper. A favorite of the true connoisseur, fountain pens are each a work of art in their own right Cross offers nibs in two widths: Medium & Fine
Cross mechanized pencils are offered in all Century finishes.The size of the mechanical pencil’s line is 0.7 mm which is determined by the width of the lead. For the traditionalist as well as professionals in drafting and drawing fields, Cross Pencils offer fine quality and a lifetime mechanical guarantee.

I don't want a writing pen if it's not CROSS. I love the quality feel and ease of writing with it. So for a great and appreciated gift to anyone, CROSS is the one. Some of these are made in China. I search the description carefully for the ones made in USA because they are made better, look better, and cost a bit more. They all have the forever warranty though.
This feels good in the hand, though perhaps someone with bigger hands would find it too narrow. The included medium point refill is no better than a standard ballpoint you'd buy at a generic office supply or big box store. Do yourself a favor and swap in the fine point refill for a more precise and smoother writing experience. Plus, the fine point better fits the overall character of the pen.
Overall, I give it four stars. Would buy again. It's not a luxury pen by any means, but rather an affordable way to add a touch of class and elegance to everyday writing tasks.
Just don't try to use it with sweaty hands or if you are a regular user of lotion. Slippery slippery.
