  1. Hiya I'm hoping someone can advise me? Joined the forum yesterday as I need some help please. Was trying to refill a vintage cross ballpoint (classic century I believe) and somehow managed to remove the refill holder, instead of just the refill?? And of course it won't go back in now... I've tried heating the barrel but that didn't work. Have I ruined it?
  2. Hi all! I've just joined the forum, as I'm looking for help with a vintage Cross ballpoint (classic century?) such a Beautiful pen and I fear I've ruined it... Was trying to get the refill out (I know I know, read the instructions) and somehow unscrewed the refill *holder* instead of just the refill. The spring and 2 little washers came out as well. For the life of me, it won't all go back in! It's like the refill holder is too big. . Is this how it stays in..? Friction? And once it is out, can it ever be put back? I am beyond annoyed with myself.
  3. My great-grandmother gave me this set a few years ago and am trying to find a matching fountain pen to purchase. The issue is, I don’t know the model name. If anyone could help me with this I would really appreciate it! Thank you in advance, William
  4. I just got a couple of Cross Bailey Light fountain pens (£10 on sale, WH Smith UK) and 3 Cross refill converters (£7 each, buy two get one free, from same place). They were advertised as "Fine Nib", but now I have them, there's no word "Fine" on the packaging, and there's an "M" on the front. I'm not familiar enough with Cross or fountain pens in general to be able to tell a Fine tip at a glance. The "M" could stand for "medium girth", according to their website. Can anyone advise? Should I send them back? Come to think of it, are Bailey Lights bad pens; should I return them while I have the chance? All I know about Cross is they made some beautiful 1980s (?) gold pens and pencils that a friend of mine has, and some equally awesome gold fountain pens. I don't know how well their more modern, Chinese-made, lower-end models compare. I can't afford one of their older/higher class pens yet, so was hoping a Bailey Light would serve me as an alternative until that day. Anyone know the thickness of line that Cross Fine nibs are supposed to draw? (I've heard Western "Fine" = 0.34mm)
  5. *sorry it's a pen and pencil set* Parents passed recently and I found this pen while cleaning out their house. I remember playing with it as a kid but I know nothing about it. I'm going to keep it just wondering if anyone can tell me anything about it. Thank you
  6. Hi everyone, I hope you're doing great and you're enjoying your weekend. I recently got my wife a cross pen but we're not really sure about it. We've tried looking it up on google but couldn't really find anything about so I thought that experts like you might be able to shed some light on this. We don't have too many pics of it since we bought it from an online seller so this is all we got unfortunately (Seller said it's not its original box). Thank you for your help on this!!!
  7. While I use my smartphone for many things, I still manage tasks the old fashioned way -- on paper in a notebook. I find that the physical act of writing with a pen keeps things in my head better than typing them into a digital task manager. I mostly use my fountain pens for this (various colors for different purposes), but I like to have a rollerball or two on hand for back-up in case a pen has dried a bit or is acting finicky. I've been attempting to use Cross rollerballs for this -- in part because they offer purple and red as well as blue and black. However, lately I have found that these refills are beyond dreadful. Dreadful -- as in they won't write consistently within five minutes of opening the package and installing the refill in the pen. I know there are a lot of other rollerball options out there (indeed, I use many others). But I can't believe how bad these refills have become. Cross really ought to be ashamed to have these things on the market -- at least in my view. Anyone else seeing the same thing?
  8. Hello, new here this is my first post. I am a fountain pen newbie, looking to learn more about them! I recently acquired a late 90’s titanium-gold Cross Townsend with 14k gold nib. Unfortunately there’s dry ink in it from many years ago. I am soaking and flushing it to clean it. Using only water and converter. My question is: How can I clean the dry ink off of the nib itself, without damaging the gold? There’s an ink patch near the base as well as along the breathing line. 14K nib units seem to be very hard to find these days, so I want to use minimally invasive techniques to clean the pen up if possible. any advice would be appreciated. Thanks
  9. Could anyone tell me how much a Cross Bailey's cap should be expected to wobble? - eg when capped? I've just bought a Bailey whose cap does this, shifting around by as much as a millimeter on either side. The wobble is especially noticeable when the pen's held by the cap. How typical is this of Baileys? My other Cross pens (Calais, Century & cherished Dubai) all have very secure caps.

    Sailor Cross Nibs

    To those who own a sailor naginata and a cross nib. I am curious to know that are the two nib tines for the cross nib longer than usual or they appear like that due to stacking them? Since i own a sailor naginata nib and the two arms are slightly longer than the usual nib tines. So i was wondering if they use pre-naginata nibs for their cross nibs or they use regular nibs with extra tipping (like the zoom).

    Why, Verve, Why?

    My husband was paring down his collection and gave me this lovely Cross (he knows I'm a fan of the brand). I want to love the Verve, I really do - but even when I deliberately grip the pen farther back on the body, after a long writing session my grip "migrates" a bit and this happens. I'm not even particularly close to the nib; I swear the ink JUMPS from that little slit in the chrome and seeks my finger out! Any tips? Or do I just need to make more frequent grip adjustments? This issue has caused me to pull this lovely pen out of my daily carry rotation (not that I'm hurting for pens to fill the spot, of course).

  19. Cross Century II Collection for Scuderia Ferrari Polished Chrome Fountain Pen Fine Only $59.99 Free Shipping in The USA This Scuderia Ferrari officially licensed Century II writing instrument was designed to reflect the extraordinary passion and talent that drives the Scuderia Ferrari Racing Team on the track. With its signature colors and custom-designed clip, it brings to mind all the speed and excitement of Formula 1™ racing. It also reflects the impeccable craftsmanship and attention to detail that Cross is famous for.
  20. Just before pressing the "buy now" button, I went thru the reviews and found that it is a PLASTIC pen!! Wouldn't mind paying 10, 15 or 20 dollars for a plastic pen, but $50? And, since when the iconic Century has been made out of cheap plastic? All the Century pens I own (made in USA) are metal. Why did Cross thought using plastic was a great idea? I really wanted to get back to the brand, but the more I try, the more disappointed I become. The Century Classic Black pen is just lovely looking. What a waste of design.
  21. What pen is this? It says "Elysee german point" on nib and "Cross" on the cap. Is there something unusual about the nib? It doesn't have a breather hole. It writes well. Nib is extra-fine or fine (i'm not really sure). It is an eyedropper. Cap is pull type. https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/uploads/imgs/fpn_1596207729__index6.jpg https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/uploads/imgs/fpn_1596207756__index5.jpg https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/uploads/imgs/fpn_1596207779__index4.jpg https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/uploads/imgs/fpn_1596207811__index.jpg https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/uploads/imgs/fpn_1596207835__index2.jpg

    Actual Us President (Donald Trump) Pen

    Dear All, I was looking at the pen used by Donald Trump for signing the executive orders (I have attached a picture). I know it is a Cross Townsend black but I noticed it is not a pen, it is most a black marker. Looking on the Cross official site I didn't find any Townsend Cross Marker model, only Roller (that was the one of the former Barack Obama), ballpoint and fountain pen. Is it pheraps a special model not available on the market?

    A Proper Converter For Older Cross Atx?

    Will this converter shown here fit an *older* CROSS ATX (I presume), # 9080 (or 0806?) on the grip section?

    Cross Nib - Gold Or Steel -

    I've had this sterling silver fountain pen in my display case for ~15+ years and believe it is a classic century ll. (graduation gift from my father). It's new - never inked. Both cap and barrel are sterling and I haven't found another one like it. There is no hallmark on the nib specifically indicating that it is gold. Are all Cross gold nibs, particularly the older models, marked as such or should I assume that this is steel. Photo link attached. https://imgur.com/a/JYCBl4I I would really appreciate some help figuring this out. Thanks
  25. Hello fellow pen people! I've gotten very into my fountain pen collection recently. Somehow, perhaps foolishly, I acquired the barrel and cap only of a Cross Paul Smith Sterling Silver fountain pen. I have sort of a thing for silver pens (I have 5 Parker 75s) and to me this is lovely. I know that some people find them heavy and impractical, but setting that aside I want to buy a section and nib for this. I know there is very very slim chance of finding the original ones, but certainly something else would fit? Cross was supremely unhelpful (not that I blame them), saying simply "can't help you". Here it is: https://imgur.com/fpngallery/MTJNInx
