I bought this pen after lossing the red cross fountain pen that I bought from Staples. I like to make sketches on watercolor paper and then let the water make some of the ink run for shades. I then put some watercolor washes on the painting and it is complete.

Cheap build, but worth the cost...

I wanted a quality pen, but this was all Staples had. You can ALMOST fit a spare cartridge inside the body. What a waste in awful design. Also, it puts a LOT of ink on the page-especially for having such a small cartridge (6 pack for [$]). The quill is already starting to separate. But, it is a value if you are looking for a cheap pen that glides across the page with almost no friction. There just isn't anything like a fountain pen!

Great Fountain Pen

Comments about Cross® Aventura® Black/Chrome Fountain Pen, Black, Each:

For many years I always used and had been writing with a fountain pen. It was easier for me to write some many years ago.

Oftentimes, many of my workers being students at the local university comment on the pens I use. They have never seen a fountain pen in their lives and wonder if they are the quill pens used more than two hundred years ago!

The first fountain pen I bought was in 1954 - a Sheaffer - which had a "snorkel" to suck up ink from a jar. India ink. Which was almost permanent. I use this pen daily. Cost $2.00 then and had a gold plated tip. Writes just a well now and 60 years ago!

Hope the Cross pen I bought recently lasts as long - probably longer - since I will be dead unless I live to be 145 years old.

Absolutely the worst fountain purchased

By Robert Hoffmann

from Harrison, NY

Comments about Cross® Aventura® Black/Chrome Fountain Pen, Black, Each:

I have owned fountain pens for over 25 years.

I received a Waterman 15 years ago which I replaced 10 years ago with an identical pen purchased from Staples to replace the first when it was lost.

Recently the nib broke and I returned to Staples to purchase a new one. I was surprised to see Waterman was no longer available but I assumed the Cross would be just as good.

I was very disappointed with the Cross. The ink cartridges were 60% smaller than the Waterman which I had to replace more often (I write a lot), the darn cap refused to stay on the barrel when I wrote with it and the latest is the barrel bent in my attaché and I can no longer unscrew the nib to replace the cartridge. What a disappointment.

I e-mailed Cross and expressed my displeasure and didn't ask for a replacement because I want nothing to do with a Cross pen they evidently didn't feel the need to even acknowledge my e-mail.

So there you have it. Nothing against Staples but bring back Waterman!

Great Product

Comments about Cross® Aventura® Black/Chrome Fountain Pen, Black, Each:

This pen is old school, but modern. The ink is refills from the bottle. As a result, there is only a real requirement to carry on pen. The color of the ink may be changed from black to blue or a number of other colors.

The pen is silver and black which makes a great addition to any office setting. Cleaning of the pen is easy with water. In addition, it make a wonderful silent statement and is simple to use. Just be careful not to bend the nib and only one person should ideally use the pen. Other pens appear to be more expensive for some reason.
