The concept of the ballpoint pen dates to the early 1800's but very few were made before the 1940's. This is due to the complexities involved in making them. The major problem areas were the size of the ball and most importantly, the Ink. Having now developed a system for converting vintage Ballpoints to work with Cross refills we feel it is time to offer beautiful early Ballpoints to use and collect. Early models were disappointing to use to say the least. This was entirely due to the actual ballpoint technology and the poor quality ink globbing and leaking. By keeping the pens original and using Cross refills we hope to give these pens a second chance
