We are delighted that the Pilot (Namiki) Falcon is now officially available in Europe. This classic design features a 14k gold, rhodium-plated "soft" nib that creates a degree of flexibility rarely found in modern fountain pens. Brass construction with gloss lacquer coating.  The Falcon takes PILOT cartridges or the CON-70 push button converter (supplied).



Mr R Vine

Pilot make resin and metal versions of the Falcon, however only the metal version is sold here in the UK.
It's a weighty pen. The body is 19g and the cap is 14g.
The body and cap are metal, the section is still resin.
It looks rather boring in photos and the nib looks odd, but don't let this put you off.
In reality it is elegant, understated and beautifully made.
It is long enough to use unposted, and feels well balanced in the hand.
The soft medium nib on mine is glassy smooth and very bouncy, but it probably has less flex than you are expecting.
It is definitely usable as a daily writer.
It is quite easy to get line variation of a nib size, eg from medium to broad.
The included converter uses a vacuum mechanism, and works very well.
If the writing experience is your primary concern then this pen is hard to beat in my view.

Nib choices for fountain pens
If we show the pen with the default nib selection shown in stock it means we have stock of that pen. If you select another nib size and the website doesn't say "in stock" we can usually supply that pen immediately as we keep extensive supplies of nibs from all our manufacturers.
