[This is not a complaint because it wasn't a problem for me, but I would want to know about this particular item I received days ago--the one I'm reviewing on Amazon having purchased one here (as opposed to whatever others of this product I've seen around) came in a version of the standard gift-pen presentation box, but that box was in a matching cardboard sleeve; there was scotch tape all around the box and sleeve lengthwise, which would have been disappointing if I'd had it sent to someone, or even if I'd planned to wrap it as a gift because the sleeve tore when I removed the tape, so the whole "unboxing" was kinda clumsy.]
-With a twist, it goes from a black ballpoint to a red one, then again to a pencil.
-There's an eraser under the stylus tip. While I do not have much use for a stylus, it's visually pleasing to have that instead of the eraser on display unless you need the eraser.
-The mechanism is impressive. (Some reviews I've seen seem to indicate that it's worth making yourself get used to turning it the reverse way only to retract the writing tip into the pen--it's tempting to go backwards to the point you were using before, but some reports of the mechanism failing over time seem connected to people using that reverse twist (for retracting) by accident too often when trying to select a different point/color. I find it intuitive and easy to be cautious of this.)
-The inkflow from the refills that fit this pen is as smooth as any Cross I've ever used.
-It is possible to advance/retract the pencil lead without pressing on the stylus tip because that whole end of the pen is the thing that you move to click it--just think in terms of using two fingers on the sides of the pen you twisted to select the point rather than a thumb on the stylus covering the eraser.
-This pen is remarkably thin for so much function--not as slender as the traditional Cross ballpoints, but by no means fat. It has a nice heft and the satin/matte black finish is easy to grip. (I've not used the other, metallic colors.)
Anecdote: I got a version of this pen as a gift; it is my favorite because it was all matte black--this one has a metallic (chrome) clip and tip, but is a little bit less expensive and ships more quickly. After one day of using it at work, I was hooked. I loved how stealth it was, not calling attention to itself with bling, but so much more than a generic, disposable, black pen. After two weeks, a co-worker--who is notorious for never returning pens, but who is also kinda my boss and whom I like a lot--needed a pen and kinda seemed to be secretly coveting mine. Thirty minutes later, he was very sorry, but had taken a call while walking outside and lost it. He has ordered a replacement of the exact item he lost because he understood it was a real gem in the matte black, but the one he got ships from Japan and I got this one to temporarily replace it and serve as a backup going forward.
Disclaimer: I have been accumulating fine pens for decades and kinda got over Cross in high school. When I received this pen, I initially thought it was a sweet gift I would not likely use much--I tend to prefer writing with fountain pens and am fortunate to have some very nice ones. If the description and highlights seem like the answer to a need you have, I'd guess you need look no further. ;-)
The slim form fits easily in my shirt pocket with my phone. The ability to rotate CCW to hide a tip, then CW to retrieve the same tip is genius. Moving further CW rotates between tips. I mostly use the pencil, and this system makes it always available without going through the whole tip rotation every time. Same for sessions dominated by ink-pen use. The pencil eraser is nicely hidden under the screw-top stylus, protecting it well.
If I ever lose this pen (perish the thought), I'll jump on here and immediately buy another. It's that good!
So when it works it will be great but just do not put much faith in the lifetime warranty.
What I like best about Cross Multipens is the fact that the company has figured out how to completely retract each point without having to the old trick of keeping the pen twisted “halfway”between any of the points, which is a major complaint with many of the Japanese twist multi-pens. The rubber stylus is somewhat of a weak point: You can point and push with it, but I personally have issues with things like “signing” a screen with one. Further, I think you have to order a whole new cap if the stylus ever needs to be replaces, but I’m not certain. That’s why I deducted one star, I would have preferred the old cap version for the Tech 3 pens.
Only downside -- mine didn't come with the non-stylus tip as was stated (-1 star for that).

I liked the idea of a multi function pen but was always put off by the cheap plasticy things that they were.
Came across this and thought I'd give it a go.
I'm so glad I did - Been using it 6 months now. The pen writes beautifully, feels comfortable and still looks like new despite being chucked in my bag with my laptop and other stuff daily.
Like others I was concerned about the life of the refills being as they are quite small. However a refill lasts me 3 months, I use the pen daily, which is about the same as I was getting from the gel ink refills on my old Townsend.
I've only used the pencil a couple of times and it seems OK. The stylus tip seems sturdy enough to me, similar to many purpose built styli, however I can't comment on it's use as I don't use it, I prefer to use my finger.
December 2019 update
I still have the pen and use it each day. The twisting mechanism is quite soothing and I tend to play with it in meetings. The only problem was that the touch screen bit on the end wore out but I picked up a replacement on Amazon for less than a fiver. The other thing about these pens is that the price fluctuates quite a lot so you are better off monitoring prices for a while before taking the plunge. But it is a great pen!
Cross customer services were first class when I contacted them with a query and resolved it immediately. This pen takes standard multi-pen refills so replacements are not overly expensive as you can shop around.
