I have used this pen every day since buying it about 3 months ago. It still makes me smile every time I use it!
I have several Cross pens but this is by far the prettiest and a great little writer. It's comfortable to use, the twist mechanism is holding up well (i tend to play with my pen when I am thinking and I often find twist pens give up after a while!)
I'm still on the original cartridge, which writes beautifully. Refills are a good price and tend to last well too. At this price, the pen is an absolute steal - if you are thinking about a treat for yourself or a pen/stationery addict, this is a perfect choice!
