I have been [im]patiently awaiting the arrival of my Cross Pen BzzKit for the past week and it is finally here.
Have you ever used a Cross pen before? It is like writing with butter, smooth creamy butter. Cross has been in the pen making business for over 150 years, so they know a thing of two about fine pen craftmanship.
So let’s get to my delight; I have never received a pen in such a beautiful package, Bic has nothing on this beautiful brown box… it’s like the little blue box of pens.
And inside, my Nitro Blue Cross Edge. And the angels sang.
Cross has spent endless hours perfecting their ink and mechanical quality standards; they are so confident in their perfected quality that they back each pen and pencil with a 30 day trial/satisfaction guarantee and a lifetime mechanical guarantee.
The Edge is very cool. It looks pretty tiny in it’s box, but once you slide the top up it measures almost 5 inches. They call this their one handed rollerball pen, for when you don’t have the time to fiddle with a cap or a spare hand to twist a barrel. It is a medium weight pen, which I did not think that I would like, but it fits and feels perfect in my hand. I love the way the pen and ink flow when I am writing, I was going to give you a sample, but I was scratching something down for work – I don’t want to bore your with my real job blah blah. Maybe I will work up a sort of photo montage of my Cross pen in action during the day, A Day in the Life of Alyssa’s Little Nitro, I like it.
