    Just saw a that we are now selling cross pens and I was wondering if they were worth getting? I'm looking for my first nice EDC pen and wanted to know your guys' thoughts? help me pick?
    edit: by we I meant my work place. Sorry for mis-clarification.

    Support the forum, buy from the forum shop!

    after saying that, try them out at your local office store. I do not see a Cross pen in the shop.

    Makes more sense. I think my "Service Years" pen is a Cross. I personally don't care for it.

    i carry a Cross Classic, and a Cross Tech 3. I have carried the classic for almost 20 years now. I like the fact that it writes smoothly with no blotching, blobbing, or skipping right up until it runs out of ink.

    It feels too thin. A little light for my hand.

    Cross makes some very nice pens. The only one I haven't liked is a C-Series that I eventually decided was too top-heavy for my taste. The Cross Edge feels great in my hand. And I've had a Tech 3 for years that feels comfortable and performs well.

    There are plenty of companies, including Cross, that make great conventional pens, but I give Cross credit for taking chances on innovative new designs that look and feel different.
