Cross tech 2 Ballpoint Pen 30 Day Pen Challenge
« on: May 19, 2019, 01:59:07 PM »
This here is the Cross Tech 2 Ballpoint Pen in Satin Black.
 It was a Christmas gift from Mrs Sabretache and has now become my EDC pen. I have been a bit apprehensive about carrying it as i am always losing pens, and am yet to hold on to one for any prolonged period of time. I will be listing a photo of this pen every day for the next 30 days for a nice shiny new merit badge. (provided i don't lose it)

Build quality
It has a solid metal casing with a twist tip opening. The rubber tip is a stylus that unscrews from the casing, so its great for the kind of chaps and chapess's who enjoy working on the tablet or phone amd moves across the screen incredibly smoothly.  The satin black finish is very hard wearing but i would recommend a case if you are worried about damaging it in the same pocket as your keys.

Writing quality
I love how this pen writes.  The black ink flows very smoothly and i have not had any problems with this pen and i have had it 2 years. I would highly reccomend if you want a good quality  pen that doesn't cost the earth These pens retail around £26 so it wont break the bank.

Thanks poncho much appreciated. Heres a photo of the tech 2 disassembled, there are few moving parts and little to go wrong.

But if none of them are a "general EDC notebook discussion" kind of thread, which I understand is what you're thinking of, then feel very free to make one. :cheers:

Thanks Don i searched Notebooks but nothing appeared except my comment about starting a notebook thread. How odd. I've started a thread for this so we'll  see what comes up.
