Cross still makes great daily user fountain pens. Take the Cross ATX for example. Ours has a durable metal cap and barrel that won't break when dropped (like a Mont Blanc.) It has a smooth-writing, medium steel nib. This pen uses Cross-only cartridges or a screw-in Cross converter. This pen comes with neither, but it is a bargain at more than 50% its original retail price. The bronze-colored, chrome-trimmed cap and barrel sport a record grove design that has no scratches, cracks or dents. We don't think it was used much at all. 13.9cm capped.
