"Write" of passage

My father is a traditional man who carried the traditional tools of any father and working man in his front shirt pocket. One of those "tools" was recently passed down to my oldest son in the from of an old Cross pen that he has had for at least thirty years. It was a gift that my older brother had gotten him for Christmas and he has spent many a dollar buying ink refills to keep it working. My oldest thought it was a little corny at first but has come to appreciate the tradition behind and the convenience of what will be the first of many "tools" and traditions he will keep in his front pocket to pass down to his kids or grandkids.
