This is the pen I waited for the longest, since Goulet was out for a long time. The Nighthawk was appealing to me as a workhorse pen because it references both of my professions. First, being a fountain pen, it suits an attorney—for some reason, they remain a symbol of our profession. Second, before law school, I studied aerospace engineering and worked for a major aerospace company for a time. As part of that, I was involved in working on a stealth aircraft. So the matte black carbon fiber references that really nicely.

 

Finally, I'd really wanted to try one of Pendleton Brown's butter-line stubs. His B and M hold a bit more appeal to me, but probably aren't as conducive to my note-taking. A fine, on the other hand, seemed perfect.

 

I am very pleased with the result. The writing experience is terrific, and I've already received a few questions about the pen from my more technical clients. But I also really love the feel of the pen in my hand; the carbon fiber is very smooth yet solid in a way that none of my other pens are. It's hard to describe, but I love it.

 

Anyway, here are the pictures.

It is interesting to me that my handwriting has a tendency to show less line variation than others does. My wife gets much more. And I should post the handwriting sample Pendleton sent with the pen. But I think it's a function of the ways we write. It doesn't trouble me; just interests me.

I also  have a Monteverde Invincia with fine stub from Pendleton Brown. It is actually my favorite nib, and such a joy! Mine is the rose gold version, but I really like the more subtle look of the black too. Very nice!

You have excellent taste in both nibs and your own pen!

i've always wondered about a stub nib.  never got one since i write small, thus always use a fine nib or a japanese-medium nib.  this post makes me want to get my very own stub-fine-nib.  great penmanship, by the way  :thumbup:

Nice review! I have an Invincia in Tartania color with a wet medium nib - perfect for fast notes since it's a snap cap.

Thanks—I'm working on it. I was so happy to discover how fine stubs worked for me. I've liked the line variation a lot, as I think it is what sets fountain pen writing apart (that or flex, anyway). But broad stubs don't work as well for normal-sized script. But I've loved how fines work for me, anyway. And I highly recommend Pendleton's work. I'm very, very pleased.

 

Nice review! I have an Invincia in Tartania color with a wet medium nib - perfect for fast notes since it's a snap cap.

 

I think I'd enjoy a snap-cap for exactly that reason. Although the short screw on this works pretty well.
