This is the original first series, all time classic pen, the Townsend model, made in the mid 1990s. The pen is impressionable to say at least. It is a truly oversize pen, a massive pen, both in weight and size. Photos don't do justice to the pen's appearance, it is difficult to capture in photos due to the extremely high reflections, the pen simply shines. The pen is superb in any way, it has a perfect even over the top feel and balance in the hand. It is smooth on the paper, glides effortlessly. The pen is made out of thick solid steel and with a very nice chrome finish, all trimmings are 23K gold plated. This makes the pen extremely heavy, giving it solid firm feel in the hand and balance. The pen will glide over the paper without any pressure from the hand, making writing feel completely effortless. The body and cap have nice guilloche lines from top to bottom giving it an astonishing look. The pen features a solid steel F fine size gold plated nib, which will write constant fine size, and its simply great clean writer, no excess ink. This is a clean writer, perfect for nice easily readable handwriting or smaller typeface, like pocket notebooks and so on. The pen comes with its original piston converter but it can also take standard Cross cartridges. This converter is slightly bigger then the standard international converters, so it takes much more ink. Its also a beautiful light green color. Its very easy to clean and maintain, the entire front section together with the slip-on nib are very easy to disassemble and clean. This is definitely one of the best classic pens for every day use, easy to maintain, clean, difficult to scratch or damage, simple to use, with superb build quality and elegant timeless design. Absolute mint NOS never used condition. Comes in its original presentation box. The box has a company logo on it "Symantec" however the pen does not bare any personal or company insignia.
