Newest Acquisitions (Virtual "Show & Tell") ~ part 170

Today's spotlight is on a writing instrument described by Cross as "the power suit of pens" - Stuart's brand-new Cross 'Apogee' Chrome fountain pen !

(all photos courtesy of Stuart ~ please click on images to enlarge)

 Stuart: "The unique design of the 'Apogee' is a departure from other Cross fountain pens, which have tended to be very traditional in design. This profile shot gives a good idea of the dramatic form of the long clip."

(the 'Apogee' resting against "a lumpy white rock" which, according to Stuart, is actually "a piece of ancient Florida sand dollar, from the ocean floor of ages ago and now coated in limestone!")

Stuart: "I’m very pleased with how well the pic of the Cross nib came out, it shows the feather-like detailing very nicely. The nib on the Apogee is a sweet writer, very smooth and quite wet.

Stuart's Cross 'Apogee' was purchased on clearance from the Vancouver Pen Shop - a great deal on what sounds like a great fountain pen. Thanks for sharing it with us, Stuart!
