A. Cross.

Feels good in hand, write well, and look nice.

I carry two cross pens in the breast pocket although I never use them they are for looks only. The pen I use to write is a paper mate it is just the one I have right now.

I too wear 2 Cross Pens in my breast pocket for show only. I think they look sharp and very professional. For actual pen use, I prefer one with a thumb click instead of fumbling around with pen caps or "twist style" pens.

I know this is corny, but when I got promoted to Sgt I received two gold Cross pens as a gift which I then got engraved with my wife and son's names on them.

I tried the cross pens. They looked good but did not compare to the Parker pens for writting V's. I have now switched to the Zebra F-402. Nothing beats it when making five copies. 8)

I use the pens that the pharmaceutical reps leave at my work. They are good weight, are made metal so they look sharp in the shirt pocket, and they are free so if I loose one its no big deal.

I wear two cross pens in the left shirt pocket, that was the Chief's big gift to us on graduation day from the academy... Although I will look into the models dfc2502 mentioned. There has to be something better for writing V's.

Two State issued pens. They are free, have ink, and the blind people make 'em. If I loose them, I just grab another free set.

There is a place in Hanover Mall, Hanover MA. called "Things Remembered." Someone brought me a Cross pen from there and had it Engraved. I Dont know how much It cost nor how much detail they put into it. Mine simply has my name and the year on it. "Epolice" In Quincy may do engravings as I know they engrave Badges.
