2017 USA President's Pen of Choice - Cross

2017 USA President's Pen of Choice - Cross

Since the Inauguration of President Donald Trump on January 20th, 2017, we have been receiving questions left and right about which pen the President was using to sign his official documents. If you were watching the Inauguration and admired his pens, then read on for the low-down on the new President’s pen of choice.

Cross Pens-- An American Classic

Here we see Trump using a Cross Century II Rollerballs Black Lacquer with 23kt Gold Trim appointments at his Inauguration. Trump has and will be using these often for signing executive orders.

Trump, and many presidents prior to him, use felt tips in medium size and black color in their pens The felt tip leaves a solid, smooth black line that dries quickly, which is perfect for signing many documents in succession. These do not normally come in Cross pens, but must be purchased separately.

These pens are hefty and incredibly sturdy. The lines are clean, bold, and the essence of classy. Now anyone can use the same pen as the President.

Just remember  - with great powers comes great responsibility.  So use this mighty pen wisely since pen is still mightier ever in this digital era.

Monteverde Rodeo Drive Collection

Monteverde Rodeo Drive Collection
Monteverde has been a symbol of unique style and taste from the day of its inception. Over the years, the brand has introduced an array of sophisticated writing instruments to create an everlasting impression, and they have succeeded to a point. It would be legit to say, Monteverde has paved its way to excellence with every product.

A new assortment of writing instruments from Monteverde is the Rodeo Drive series. This fine series is inspired by the glamour of Beverly Hills. Each pen exudes an astounding beauty and reflects the luxurious lifestyle in Beverly Hills. Though fancy, Rodeo Drive pens are made of solid brass and are durable. To add a unique sensation, each pen is coated with a layer of lacquer and is made available in four subtle stardust finishes (black, blue, green and orange). The astounding profile is accompanied by lustrous chrome plated appointments. What impressed me was the outer appearance; the gleaming profile of the pen is stunning. But, as attractive as the pen looks on the outside, the performance it gives on the paper is absolutely spectacular too. 

The Rodeo Drive collection is available in two different writing modes: ballpoint and fountain pens. The ballpoint pen features a smooth twist mechanism to ease the writing process. Chunky in appearance, the perfectly symmetrical profile of the pen is comfortable to hold and easy to write with. The smooth refill adds the missing ingredient and offers a pleasing writing experience.

On the counter side, the Monteverde Rodeo Drive fountain pens share an identical design with the ballpoint version, while the working mechanisms are totally poles apart. Rodeo Drive fountain pens feature a stainless steel nib, the performance of the nib is synonymous to gold-alloy nibs and almost glides throughout the entire writing process. The nib starts with a soft touch and keeps you away from the hassles of writing with cheap and nasty fountain pens. Rodeo Drive fountain pens fill via cartridge/converter. These fine writers accept standard international cartridges, but its best to go with converters as they allow you to use bottled inks.

Both Rodeo Drive ballpoint and fountain pens are amazing writing implements, in terms of both look and functionality. They have it all, nice design, luxurious finish, and a performance that will outstand even the most expensive writing tools. Writing with Monteverde Rodeo writing implements is fluent, and it might create an overwhelming notion in the mind of the writer.  And, with a large variety of colors to choose from, you won't have to feel trapped with the Rodeo drive collection.
