Inspired by 1930s Art Deco motifs, the Cross Townsend is designed with simple yet sophisticated lines.
This pen is a perfect choice for those who tend to gravitate towards silver when selecting watches or jewelry.
A diamond-pattern engraving on the platinum-plated finish adds both textural and visual intrigue, demonstrating meticulous attention to detail.
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.
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.
Notice the way the Art Deco motifs carry over even to the design on the nib unit itself.
The rhodium-plated two-tone gold nib pictured here matches the platinum-plating of the cap and body.
Unless requested otherwise, each pen or nib you purchase from us will be carefully examined, tested, and optimized for your personal writing characteristics before it ships.
