My wife bought me a Cross Pinnacle biro as a present in 1997. It is made in solid sterling silver with some gold-plated clips and ends, and has been a source of much writing pleasure over the last twenty years.
Recently, on eBay, I bought a Cross Pinnacle fountain pen, again in solid sterling silver and with a fine nib (a nib I prefer), from a pen collector/seller from the USA (using the nom-de-plume Speerbob), bless him, and it has offered the same pleasure as the biro. According to Speerbob, it dates from 1997 or thereabouts, so is a most apt companion to my biro.
The fact that is looks good and performs so well, is probably all that matters and yet this seemed such an appropriate forum to introduce the two pens and seek feedback from anyone sufficiently interested to respond.
This is my first venture into top-rated (I hope) fountain pens and I am keen to learn and explore further options for purchase and use.
