CROSS Launches Limited Edition Townsend Star Wars Pen

Some people are excited by rare wines, some by fast cars and others simply by the world’s biggest movie franchise, Star Wars. This Winter, luxury pen makers CROSS have created the ultimate writing instrument for any Star Wars fan and they are breathtaking.


This luxury writing instrument commemorates the original 1977 film while also celebrating the newest fan-favorite, Star Wars: The Force Awakens.  In fact, only 1,977 pens in each technology and for each character were produced, each individually serialized. These pens are highly sought after and we love them. Prices start from £295 for these limited edition pieces.

The range focuses on some of the top characters in the franchise, including C-3PO, Darth Vader, Stormtrooper, R2-D2, BB-8. There are then two variants of each character in either rollerball and fountain pen style.

It must be said, each pen is exquisitely made and crafted to absolute perfection. We were lucky enough to see a pen in person and the level of detail is out of this world. You could say the quality is so good, they must be form a galaxy far, far away… Sorry! The details are etched into the pen and embossed with precious metals for the ultimate finish.

To finish, the pen is then crowned with a Swarovski® crystal, reminiscent of the character’s design and this sits neatly in the pens lid. For example, we received the BB-8 pen and the crystal in this instance has a red hue. It’s a luxurious and lavish touch! The BB-8 pen is finished with a high-quality white lacquer and presented in a unique luxury gift box with a pen stand included.  To top this off, the pen comes showcased in a CROSS Luxury Gift Box.

We would recommend this as a gift for any Star Wars fans. It’s a collector’s item, premium quality and a superbly impressive piece of craftsmanship. The CROSS collection can be purchased online at and at select retailers. Access the online store locator for more details.
