With its high-gloss finish and precious metal trim, the Cross Townsend Black Lacquer 23k Gold Plated fountain pen takes classic American elegance to new heights. This is a writing instrument which exudes style and confidence.

Inspired by 1930s Art Deco motifs, the Cross Townsend is designed with simple yet sophisticated lines. Sleek black lacquer coats the cap and barrel in a streamlined finish, and the signature double gold band adds a luxurious touch. This pen is a perfect choice for those who tend to gravitate towards gold when selecting watches or jewelry.

This is a full-sized and well-balanced pen. Though it is fairly slender, it still has a bit of heft, most of which is found in the cap. It can use convenient Cross brand ink cartridges, or can be filled with any bottled fountain pen ink using the included converter.

The Cross clip allows this pen to be easily affixed to a shirt pocket, making it the perfect pen for business meetings or for signing important documents - this is a pen that calls attention to the user.
A very solid "click" can be heard when putting the cap on. This makes an almost airtight seal between the cap and barrel, which helps prevents early dry-out of the nib. The clutch cap mechanism also allows for the cap to be easily removed when you are ready to write.

These 18k nibs, the same as are used in Pelikan pens, are well-suited to customizations such as Cursive Italic, Left Oblique, and our special Architect's Point modification.

The Cross Townsend Black Lacquer 23k Gold Plated fountain pen ships in a luxury hinged presentation box and includes starter cartridges and a converter.
