Vintage Ballpoints

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. This was perfected over the following 25 years.


We have now developed a system for converting Early vintage Ballpoints to work with Cross refills therefore we feel it is time to offer these beautiful Ballpoints to use and collect. Most ballpoints made after 1970 can still be used with refills still available today
