  1. This wasn't my first Pilot Falcon. Years ago I had another, one with a metal body and a soft medium nib. It wasn't a success. I couldn't manage the flexibility of the nib and even less the ink flow. In the end, I gave up and passed it on. It wasn't my first or last failure with fountain pens but in this case I was left with the niggling suspicion that the main issue was the rather too generous flow, not the flex. So, when a few weeks ago a Pilot Falcon was advertised for sale at the local digital marketplace, I jumped at the opportunity and bought a nice, practically new Falcon with a soft fi
  2. A couple of days ago I received my Pilot Custom Heritage 912 with Falcon nib. It doesn't seem to suffer from skippings or hard starts but it does seem too wet to me. On Rhodia paper it works fine, although it takes quite a while to dry. I used a Hiroshizuku Shin-Kai ink. The problem is that on Leuchturm notebook paper it produces an unpleasant bleeding. Is this ink too wet? Would this problem improve with an ebonite feeder? Has this happened to anyone? Thanks
  3. I hope I'm posting in the right place. Recently I bought a Falcon fine nib, which is available in the UK. As much as I loved the pen, the nib was still a tad too broad for me (mostly, I use fountain pens and dip pens for illustration). I've read good things about the EF nib, and that although not a true flex nib, offers the most line variation. However, it seems that Pilot don't want their UK customers to enjoy anything finer than the standard fine nib; currently, the Preppy is the only Pilot pen available in the UK with an ef nib. Does anyone have any suggestions as to

    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.

    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.

    Parker Falcon Of My Dreams!

    I hovered over a Falcon on Ebay, bidding when there were 7 seconds left, and got a beautiful boxed Parker Falcon, with nib size tag & price, leaflet, cartridge, converter, and card outer box.

  10. Ok, here we go....I am looking to purchase my first, and last, gold nib pen. The last pen that I will ever use. This pen will be my workhorse pen, as I will use it for journaling, I might even keep it in my pocket throughout the day. I'm looking to spend under or around $200. These are the pens that I would like to pick from: 1.) Waterman Carene 2.) Pilot Custom Heritage 91 3.) Karas Kustoms Ink (all copper) 4.) Pilot Namiki Falcon I would like to note that I'm NOT interested in any piston fillers, as I would prefer a pen that uses cartridges and converters. I enjoy carrying extra supplies
  11. 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 ?
  12. I've been wanting to get into flex pens ever since I started using fountain pens a few years ago, but didn't want to get ahead of myself. So I started off with all the recommended beginner pens. I've been writing with all my pens for awhile and now I'm itching to get into flex but would like some recommendations. I've been watching a bunch of youtube videos and curious which flex pen most people here think has the best performance. I hear vintage flex is where its at, however I can't afford vintage flex so I have to stick to modern flex for now. Here are the modern flex pens I am aware

    Help Needed On A Falcon

    I just bought a Falcon off of eBay, and the pen is as gorgeous as I expected. However, it does not seem to write like other people describe. It's very dry and scratchy. The samples below were written in the same ink, but one was with a modern Sonnet, while the other was with the Falcon. Both nibs are marked as fines. Is this normal for the Falcon? If not, what are some possible fixes? (Please keep in mind that I have never serviced a pen before.)
  14. Well, I did not know where to put it - nibs&tines, pen reviews or else So this seems a good forum. I pursue flex almost from the beginning of my fountain pen journey. I was fortunate enough not starting with modern flexes, but with a vintage one. I fancied a vintage pen, and bought one just because it was cheap, looked nice and I knew the brand. Parker Slimfold - in terms of size it was a disappointment (i didn check its size or asked the seller), - but the nib was fantastic. Right away i fell in love with "flex". Bought another vintage (Wyvern) - also great. Then started looking at m

    Help Identify And Appraise?

    I'm about to buy a cool Falcon set, and probably going to pay too much for it. The seller says it's used and (but?) in excellent condition. I know nothing more than what is in these fuzzy pictures. Anyone know: (1) which Falcon model it is? (2) what year(s) it might have been made? and, (3) ballpark idea of what it is worth (in the sense of what would sell it somewhat quickly in the FPN Classifieds)? Would really appreciate your detective skills and knowledge about whether it is (4) desirable to collectors (it is used, and "excellent" is not mint, although maybe it is minty? Looks like t
  16. I recently posted two topics requesting suggestion for a new pen and I finally decided to get a Pilot Justus 95, with a F nib. I promised to do a comparative review after I get my hands on the Justus, and here it is. Here are the links to those two reviews just incase if you want to see all the great suggestions I received: 1. https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/345205-seeking-suggestions-for-my-next-pen/?do=findComment&comment=4189695 2. https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/345550-which-pen-should-i-get-justus-95-or-custom-743/?do=findComment&comment=41952

  18. Pilot Namiki Falcon Collection Fountain Pen Extra Fine Nib Black/Rhodium currently on offer on Amazon.com.au for A$177.16, sold and shipped by Amazon US, so customers with Prime membership get free international shipping to Australia. I don't think I've seen the EF-nibbed Namiki Falcon at such a low price before. This has hit almost the previous low point for the Fine-nibbed rhodium trim model, and usually the EF-nibbed model is significantly more expensive. I was watching it for the past several months, and it has always been above A$220. I just snagged the last one that was in stock, but y
  19. I have a blue resin Falcon. I know the model was discontinued before 2007 because I found an email to a friend stating as much. Unfortunately, my saved emails only go back that far so I can't determine when I bought it. Pretty sure I bought it from Levenger (Yikes!). I've done a couple of searches but can't seem to sort through all the recent info and what "historical" data I find seems to be more intent on discussing the Elabo v. the Falcon than anything else. Does anyone know when this pen was made/sold? Thank you. KCat
  20. Namiki Falcon Collection Fountain Pen in Black with Fine nib, sold and shipped by Amazon US[/th][th] on Amazon.com.au (free shipping with Prime membership) on Amazon.com Gold trim A$153.72 US$98.47 Rhodium trim A$171.72 US$110.00 According to camelcamelcamel, that's a historic low by quite a bit for Amazon.com's price for the gold trim model, and except for a single blip, also a historic low for the rhodium trim model.
  21. Amazon.com.au is offering the Pilot Falcon Collection fountain pen in Red (resin) with Rhodium Accents and Soft Fine Nib ships from and sold by Amazon US for A$157.11 (inclusive of GST) at the moment. Delivery is free if you have Prime membership with Amazon Australia. Or you could buy it directly on Amazon.com which these days has gone back to being willing to ship to Australia delivery addresses if it is also the actual seller of the products for US$99.99, plus US$5.50 to ship to Australia (fair enough), then another 10% of that subtotal for GST, bringing the total to US$116.04, which
  22. Esterbrook made millions of their flagship 048 Falcon steel pen. It was their best-selling pen for over 70 years. They're still common, relatively inexpensive and generally dismissed by those seeking the "grail pens." (they don't fit in an oblique holder, for one, so calligraphers tend to not be interested) They can vary in quality over the years, but even the worst, the most recent made (1940's) are still, in the end, a decent pen. They actually don't get the praise I think they deserve. This one is from the late 20's, but even the later ones are relatively nice. So, her
  23. This is less of a review (and much less of a competition), and more of a comparison / demonstration of my two newest pens using two of my newest inks. The paper is Rhodia #16 pad. I've been more interested in line variation lately, as well as broader nibs. I started out my fountain pen journey, quite briefly, with Japanese fine nibs. I soon came to the conclusion there was little reason to use a fountain pen if you're using a nib that fine. Not trying to convince or argue with anyone, but that's what my eyes and hands told me. I quickly moved up to medium, and just recently began
  24. So last year I had a broken Aurora Ipsilon body. I finally found a donor body from my Monteverdi Invincia deluxe. Success come with an addiction....... So this year I wondered what else I could mix and match. I have recently acquired a pilot falcon resin which I adore. I do find the body light. So I thought 💡. Why not? So my falcon section happens to screw right in. The disease is spreading
  25. Quick fun. Just got my falcon with Office Depot 30% online deal. Took a few weeks but finally here. I need to adjust and widen Baoer feed but not too bad on test run. I have to adjust to the Falcon but its growing on me quickly. I was impressed with the noodlers nib. Just what I expected from semi-flex. Now I have to tinker with that flow. I expect the falcon will loosen up a bit after regular writing. Noodlers had no problem using moderate pressure.
