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.
