>I use a Cross fountain pen every day.<

But why? I know lots of people like them I just don't know why. Every once in a while I run across one and use it for a minute but I never really have the feeling that I must have it. They feel too heavy in my shirt pocket.

I have always used a quality fountain pen, since eigth grade in 1957. My Father gave me his old Shaefer fountain pen. I still have it, but I do not use it much. For everyday I use a Cross. In June 1980, I wrote my CFA-III, examination using a Parker Sterling Silver fountain pen. I passed taking it the first time, and was awarded my CFA Charter #6??? which is framed in my study. When I was working as an investment professional, it was on the wall of my office.
