Hi guys, I have a simple question that I hope someone can answer. Please, allow me to explain: I am interested almost exclusively in fine point nibs, and I mean really fine; I considered the pilot metro F too thick for me, so I was elated to find the Penmanship with its truly extra-fine nib, being able to simply switch the nibs! The penmanship-metropolitan mod is currently my favorite pen, even over a pen for which I paid literally 10 times the price Thinking it would be comparable, I got a Pilot Elite with a 14K EF nib, and it writes an even thicker line than the F Metropolitan! Grrrrr! I've had my eyes on a Falcon EF for many weeks now, but I cannot use it pleasurably if it is not TRULY extra-fine. MY QUESTION is, How does the penmanship EF nib compare to the Falcon EF nib? Unflexed(minimum pressure to achieve a line), does the Falcon's EF write as finely as the Penmanship's EF? I want a gold nib that's TRULY extra-fine. I'm so mad the pilot elite skimmed me on that Also, I actually do want lots of line variation, so the flex of the Falcon would be well appreciated. Eventually I'll plan on getting the Heritage 912 with a posting nib, but I'd like to have a pen below that before dropping $200 on one. Thanks if you have the knowledge to answer this!
