I was at Staples the Friday before Christmas, picking up some last minute stocking stuffers when I saw the Cross gift pen display. There was a lone fountain pen in there so I added it to my low-cost pen collection since it was selling for $20. I later found this model sells for about $40 online, although I’ve seen it at $35 from unknown vendors while other unknown vendors are above $45.
I decided to ignore the embarrassment of my chicken scratch and post the handwritten review below. But the high-points are:
- I had low-expectations but was wrong. It’s a nice pen.
- Medium nib
- Includes 6 black ink cartridges but no converter
- The screw-in converter from my Cross Verve fits the pen (and screws in) although I haven’t used it.
- Lacquer coated
