While the Cross Ion Pen is fairly durable, its plastic casing may not be the best choice for a long-lasting Cross pen. The Malachite Townsend Cross pens offer solid casing as do the Radiance and Cross Solo Pens. You shouldn't, however, judge the durability and longevity of a Cross pen by its casing. The inks in pen such as a Cross fountain pen also determine the longevity. Cross pens have long-lasting ink refills.
