Cross Pens: Edge Nitro

A couple of weeks ago the mailman brought me one of the best packages I’ve ever received—my first ever Cross pen.

Being as I’m a huge pen hoarder enthusiast, I’ve been eying up Cross pens for a while, but haven’t ever made the leap as I’m also a huge pen displacer. And now that I’ve been using a Cross pen (the Edge Nitro Blue) I’m in h-e-a-v-e-n.

What I love about this pen:

  • The Size. It’s a bit shorter than a full sized pen when closed, but it’s the perfect size when opened.
  • It’s Capless. No messing with or losing  a cap.
  • Changeability. Go from rollerball to ballpoint by changing the refill.
  • New Mom Friendly. With the innovative slide-open technology, writing out thank you notes just got a whole lot easier.

The only downside I experienced was with the ink itself, which happens. I experienced skipping after a week of constant usage. Once I replaced the ink with a refill I was good to go again.

All in all, this is one fantastic pen and I’m definitely hooked on Cross. If you’re holding out due to the price, it’s well worth it. WELL worth it. From insurance forms to thank you notes, Cross pens have you covered.

  1. Glad to hear I’m not the only one who experienced skipping after about a week. I’ll get a refill! Great review, E!

    1. Thanks, Gina! And oh no on the skipping. I was hoping it was just a fluke with mine. Hopefully the new refill will last longer. I paid $6 and change for a two-pack from Staples. .
