I got my first Cross Classic pen and pencil set when I graduated high school. Whenever I misplaced one I always went back to get another Classic. Today, my clients, most of whom are considerably younger and do not have the same nostalgic attachment, all comment positively about the pen's feel in their hand. Today, one client, using it to write a check, said, "I can see why you like this pen so much." What more can one say?
