My father got me this pen during the winter break – a black matte cross pen. I love the slick and modern design. Its all metal and quite heavy, almost feeling like something made for the military. In the other hand, there are some interesting details that add up to the entire experience, like the little grey ring at the top of the pen that indicates the button is not being pressed. The spring inside of the pen is way more robust than in regular pens, making it nice to click it. The thin, sharp tip slashes paint beautifully on any piece of paper. I love it, its really a truly desirable design.
