I bought a cheap Cross Aventura (pic above) a few years back that is finally starting to give out. I now want to replace this pen with something slightly more 'advanced'. Here's what I'm looking for:
Refillable - I'm seriously done with cartridges. I've probably lost like 20 of those things. Having the option to have cartridges would be nice, but I don't want to rely on them.
A fine nib - Or at least, finer than what I have now. I think my handwriting has improved to a point that I am writing much tighter than I used to and I'm having a hard time making round letters easily distinguishable .
Pedestrian - I don't want anything too flashy or showy for a couple reasons. One is that I am literally using this thing every day. I need a workhorse, not a showpiece. The other reason is that it just doesn't suit me. My current pen is black with gold accents and that's about as far as I want to go. Other colours are fine.
Where should I start looking?
Bonus question: do you have an ink recommendation?
