Throughout my pen journey, few ballpoint pens stand out to me like the Cross Bailey. The Bailey has a classic design suitable for any business setting. While I prefer fountain pens, the mass majority will enjoy using this pen on a daily basis. The Bailey is made of metal with a beautiful lacquered finish and chrome plated accents. The pen feels solid and quite durable as if it can handle some daily abuse. The two pictured below are over a year old and are carried frequently. They still look great!
For a ballpoint pen, the Bailey offers an exceptional writing experience. Writing is smooth and the pen glides across the page with minimal effort. The lines are quite clean with only a tad bit of white showing between the strokes. The grip is extremely comfortable and does not slip when writing. I have not experienced any fatigue when writing, which is rare for a ballpoint in my experience.
Penman's Final Remark
The Cross Bailey is great for those looking for an executive style pen at an affordable price.
