I'm eyeing the Pilot Falcon (soft-fine nib) as my next fountain pen purchase, but $150 is quite an investment for something I won't get to try beforehand. I love the classic look of the body, and the unique design of the nib. 


I already own a Pilot E95S with fine nib, which I absolutely adore and is the second-smoothest writer I own. I've heard that the Falcon SF can be rather scratchy, and I'm looking for a fairly smooth writing experience with not too much feedback. If the Falcon SF writes like the E95S F, I'd jump on it in a heartbeat.


Anyone know how the Falcon SF compares to the E95S fine nib?

I do not know the E95S, but I have found that my Falcon writes incredibly smoothly.  It' a S-M.

I would suggest the Falcon SM as it feels like a softer Pilot Elite 95s in medium. I don't think the Falcon SF will give you the smoothness you want.

Mediterranean blue, Asa Goa, China blue, Royal blue, Sapphire blue, Indigo, Washable Blue....the colours of the rainbow.
