If you need a quality professional-looking fountain pen with a reliable soft nib for everyday use, the Pilot Falcon is a great choice.
The Pilot Falcon fountain pen features a glossy solid Red resin body with Rhodium trim. The threaded screw-on black resin cap can be posted firmly and has an elegant Rhodium pen clip with a slight upwards curve. The grip has subtle threads which don’t interfere with your writing. The Pilot Falcon has two available Rhodium-plated 14-Karat Gold soft nibs, a Soft Fine and a Soft Extra-Fine.

The Soft Extra-Fine nib provides the most dramatic line variation with its very fine point. The Pilot Falcon has a reputation in the fountain pen community as being a “flex” pen, even though Pilot doesn’t advertise it as such.

A century ago, one sailor set out to create a fountain pen for the world...Pilot was born with this vision of "adventures on paper." Writing is a sign of humans expressing their thoughts as text that can be read and understood. From the Egyptian hieroglyph and wooden and bamboo strips of China, to the modern Chinese and Japanese characters and other texts that are in use today, writing is a medium of communication that has linked humans around the world and been a key driver to the advancement of mankind. Japanese-based Pilot has focused on this act of writing, and has constantly been involved in its development. Through its products, Pilot hopes to play a vital role in ensuring that the culture of writing is passed onto future generations. Every single pen made by Pilot is crafted with the same attention to detail and high quality as their first gold nib fountain pen produced in 1918 by Ryosuke Namiki. With a Pilot Pen in your hand, you possess the power to write down your ideas and share your feelings with the world as never before. Pilot offers a broad range of writing instruments, so no matter who you are or what you write, Pilot has a pen that will help you make your mark.
