My Favorite Everyday Pen

What is your opinion of the quality of this item?
I love fountain pens. I have been collecting them for 20 years. Some are limited editions cost you over $2000; others are more pedestrian. I love them all.
When I saw the saw the Cross Peerless, I was intrigued. I have a couple vintage Cross pens. They were average, surely nothing to 'write' home about. I took a gamble on this pen. I have never thought of spending this much on a Cross pen before.
Fahrney's delivered the pen within a couple of days. I was immediately impressed by the look, feel, and balance of this instrument. The nib sides effortlessly across the paper. The flow is consistent. I have yet had to initially add extra pressure to get the ink flowing. I have only one pen that does as well in this regard and it is a Namiki that cost over six times what this one did. I have only been using cartridge ink so far.
I have a friend approaching a significant birthday. I am considering buying him one. This pen now goes wherever I go. Try it' you will love it.
