  1. From the album: Translated third-party content

    On the issue of the potentially confusing terminology, going by Pilot's nib types overview page (in Japanese), the FA nib is indeed the “Falcon nib”, whereas this suggests the nib on the Pilot Falcon, aka Elabo, would be "the Falcon's nib" in contrast.

  2. From the album: Translated third-party content

    In contrast to the FA nib, which is designed to be used with only light hand pressure — irrespective of whether that produces sufficient line variation to satisfy the individual user — the Elabo's (or Falcon's) nib is designed to withstand heavier hand pressure in writing.

  3. I am considering buying one of these pens, i like pens that could be used daily (at the same time doodle with it from time to time) , I love very wet and consistent writer , which one of these do you recommend and why ?
  4. Hey There!!! Today I am going to review my Pilot Metal Falcon(SF Nib). Preface Initially I have thought of Resin body, but after going through some review(Both FPN and YouTube), I have decided to buy metal version. I have bought this pen from ebay(Seller: e_sell_jp). Price : $187 Shipping : $16(EMS Speed Post) Custom Duty(India) : $34 Total: $237 It took 10 days to reach. I was worried about custom duty, but the duty was nominal. May be the reason is, Seller marked this item as gift:D The pen comes with a Box, Pilot Cartridge(black), and a CON 70 converter!!! Look And Fill This pen is well maid. This is a metal body pen with shiny burgundy color with the contrast of chromium trim. The top of the pen cap along with the clip is shiny chromium color. Same as the border of the cap and bottom of the pen. Pen section is also metal with shiny black color. Like pen body, the section also has some chromium ring. Overall I like this look. As a metal pen it is little bit heavy, but I have no issues with that. I can use the pen even posted. The pen clip is little bit hard, but not too hard to be clipped in pocket. Ink Filling System This pen has cartridge/converter ink filling system. Unlike resin body, this support CON 70 converter. Currently I am using the cartridge. So I can say about the converter as of now. I hope the converter will also work as expected. I guess this pen cannot suitable for eyedropper, as it is made of metal. Nib Performance Primary reason for buying this pen is the unique nib. This 14Kt gold nib has a flex on it. You can get a decent line variation with this. But as a semi flex nib, it draws lot of ink. So if you have to choose paper carefully. Regarding smoothness, I do not have any issue. It has pleasant feedback. Overall I like this pen a lot. This has become one of my favorite pen. PS: I did not upload the picture and measurement details as they are available in internet. Sorry for my bad English. This is my first review.
