The Falcon is an extraordinary fountain pen for a personalized writing experience. The 14-karat gold nib is designed to be semi-flexible to yield to the user's writing pressure and angle. The resin barrel Falcon is offered in either gold or rhodium plated accents and a choice of point sizes. The metal barrel Falcon has rhodium accents and features a rhodium plated 14-karat gold nib in extra fine, fine, medium and broad point sizes. This pen is refillable for continued use with a cartridge or a Pilot CON-50 converter and arrives in a striking presentation box.
I own two Pilot Falcons an SM (medium) and an SE (extra fine). Both pens are reliable starters. I use the SM for correspondence and the SE for sketching and love it. Both pens can be turned over to use the back of the nib giving an even finer line which I use for shading not flexing. Both have flex but only for a bit of line variation don't expect a great deal of flex.
