Bird of Praise
The Namiki Falcon is a simple and well made pen. It is classic in design and has no fancy fripperies. But what this pen is really about is its nib. The solid gold nib would not be out of place on a pen costing many hundreds of pounds It is so soft and smooth you really have to try it to understand w...

Pilot Falcon Fountain Pen in Soft Extra-Fine
The soft extra-fine nib on the brand-new rhodium-trim Pilot Falcon is identical to that of the Pilot Metal Falcon, and it is awesome. It is everything I hoped it would be. For the price, this pen surely will be the new standard for gold flex nibs for those that want the most line variation without going with something custom

it is important to know that this is NOT a flex pen

My Fountain Pen Education: The Pilot Metal Falcon — The Pen Addict
As was the case with many of my friend Thomas' pens that he sent me, I didn't know what to make of the Pilot Metal Falcon when I first inked it up.

Reasons to NOT get a Lamy 2000 (please don't crucify me)
I find it very smooth, suitable for my style and sort of *forgiving,* if that makes sense, which I do not find in my Japanese pens. * I have a 74 which had skipping issues at the start because the tines were/ still are too close. I got a Pilot Falcon with the opposite problem in which the pen became too wet halfway through its cartridge and began flooding the cap with ink.

Pilot Falcon - The Clumsy Penman's InKfusion Site
I completely agree with Matt Armstrong from The Pen Habit, that if you buy a pen (especially for this money) you normally would expect pen to be working fine with no problems in most circumstances straight out of box without any finicky nib adjustments, etc. Unfortunately, Pilot Falcon is not the case I think and many users found similar issues I have. Price tag for resin model is around $ 150
