A Smug Dill posted a topic in Market WatchPilot 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 you can still order the item now at that price; the item listing states it will be in stock on 24 April 2019. Don't forget there's also the opportunity to get cashback with some programmes if you click-through to Amazon.com.au from their websites (conditions apply).
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.
madlib posted a topic in Japan - AsiaReally contemplating on purchasing a Pilot/Namiki Falcon. Never owned a gold nib before and was wondering if you guys could help me out in selecting the right nib size. So long story short, the very first fountain pen I purchased was a Pilot DPN-70 Desk pen (almost similar to the platinum carbon desk pen). I really adore the line it lays down but it tends to be a little scratchy (i eventually smoothened it with mylar and it writes like a dream, but writes with a thicker and wetter line). I will be buying a namiki falcon but I have absolutely no idea as to which nib size I should buy, should I go for the soft fine or the soft extra fine? Is the soft extra fine nib on the namiki falcon scratchy when compared to the soft fine? I recently purchased mylar paper from goulet pens (no affiliation) and smoothened all your my nibs and I am loving how smooth they run with almost no feedback and i have got so used to it! However, I would not want to risk smoothening the nib on the falcon with mylar (if i do purchase it). I want it smooth out of the box. I write with almost light pressure (probably light to medium). So what would you suggest? Soft extra fine vs Soft fine? I have seen the writing samples on goulet pens and for me it just boils down to how comfortable the nib is, and in short it should glide across the paper with no pressure. Are there any owners of the Pilot/Namiki Falcon who own the pen in Soft extra fine or extra fine, and could share their experience with the pen in terms of: Scratchiness, feedback and smoothness? This would definitely help me in deciding on which nib size to go for! Thanks in advance!
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!
