It’s always a pleasure when you get a surprise gift from your childhood friend, especially for your birthday. It doesn’t take much time when the surprise turns into joy when you find a couple of fountain pens are waiting in the box to wish you a ‘Happy Birthday’ and ‘New Year’ greetings as well. What could have made your birthday brighter or more charming but for fountain pens as a gift! Thank you Pradip…I am so delighted and overwhelmed after receiving two ebonite fountain pens from CLICK which are known as Falcon.

The Unique Pen Industries was established in the year 1978 in Indore, Madhya Pradesh. They have been manufacturing quality writing instruments ever since under the brand name ‘CLICK’. I have been using several fountain pens made by CLICK and I am very satisfied with the uniformity in their quality. I had already written a review of CLICK Bamboo ebonite (which was my first fountain pen review in FPN). I couldn’t stop myself from sharing this lovely birthday gift with all the FPN members and thus decided to write this review.

Conclusion:

Falcon is a very well constructed and well balanced pen, writing with it is a great pleasure I must say. I am very happy with its overall performance. Cannot tell about the exact price at the moment but it's not an expensive pen.I have no hesitation to suggest any one who wants a good,daily writer in low budget.

Thank you for reading this review with great patience. Wishing all my fellow FPN friends,members,visitors, pen creators and everyone a very ,very, very Happy New Year....

May God bless you all.

Best,

Sagar Bhowmick

Great review but to be honest I've tried three Click pens and was rather disappointed by them.

Thank you Visvamitra ..May be it happened with you which is very unfortunate, but I have used Tulip demo, Bamboo ebonite, falcon marbled and haven't found any problem at all...

Good review, great writing and as usual excellent photos and good looking pens.

 

Incidentally it looks like Airmail 69T design - the ring on the cap, the top jewel and clip. There is also a full marbled acrylic from Airmail that looks the same. Don't know the model number.

      @Texas42 Thank you. I myself have recently had the experience of cleaning out a Wing Sung 699, in which the iron-gall ink has been sitting for six months. No damage to the metal piston rod (whereas, in a Wing Sung 3013 vacuum-filler, it would have been corroded, turned green, and contaminated the ink in mere weeks), but there was a ring of colour at the far end of the barrel that wouldn't budge, and I found it impossible to unscrew the filling mechanism to clean the interior wall of the ink rese

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.
