Most pencils won't be as durable as pens, and that includes Cross pencils. However, you can keep your Cross pencil refills in a cool, dry desk drawer to ensure longevity. As with Mont Blanc pencils, be sure to replace the erasers often. A Cross mechanical pencil with gold, chrome (such as the Medalist), or platinum body will withstand repeated use, so long as you remember to keep it clean and pencil leads replaced. Wipe your Cross pencil with a clean lint-free soft cloth. You're Cross pen and pencil; sets will be sure to last.
