Pilot Metal Falcon Fountain Pen - Black
The Falcon is a special fountain pen that boasts a unique semi-flexible 14K gold nib, which produces line variations depending on your writing pressure and angle. It can be used for daily writing or calligraphy. The name Falcon is also thought to come from the shape of the nib, which resembles a falcon's beak.
The metal Falcon is quite a bit heavier than the resin Falcon, yet well balanced, which can be more pleasant if you prefer weighty pens. It has a gloss lacquer finish with metallic paint that shows tiny sparkles when shone under direct light. Its nib is rhodium plated to match the rhodium accents. It is more expensive than the resin Falcon, but the metal construction is built to last a lifetime, and also gives the pen a more professional look.
The pen can be refilled using Pilot proprietary cartridges or Pilot CON-70 converter (included, some models may come with a CON-50).
Caution: Although this pen has been commonly referred to as a flex pen, it is not a true flex pen. Be cautious of the extent you spread the tines, as overspreading can cause split tines.
