There are so many reviews of the Namiki Falcon out there, so for this review I want to focus on the custom nib by Mottishaw. A couple of words of praise for Mottishaw and his people at nibs.com. They held my hand the whole way, worked through one exchange because I ordered the wrong kind of pen for the writing I was hoping for, and rushed the job so I could have it before John went on vacation. Everyone is very hot on his Spencerian grind right now, but I am glad I listened to him about the oblique grind. It is very nice for my handwriting.
This is also my first review, so let me know what I have left out that you want to know. I am posting two images. One is the pen right after I received it, and the next is after a week or so with it. I have heard that the nib loosens up on the flex after use. It may be the case, or I may just be used to how hard I can ride the nib and still control it. Both reviews are written with the standard Namiki black cartridge. The converter options (Con-50 and Con-20) are pretty small and kind of messy for so little payoff, so I just use cartridges and then refill them with my favorite inks.
And here are some pictures of the nib.
