Pilot Falcon Resin Fountain Pen
Namiki Falcon Resin Fountain Pen

The Pilot Falcon Resin is both a terrific everyday writer, as well as an excellent lower-cost introduction to quality fountain pens. With its soft semi-flexible 14k nib, it is also, along with the Metal Falcon series or any Nakaya brand pen, one of the best starting points for John's well-known Spencerian customization - see the examples at the bottom of this page.

The Falcon Resin weighs 18.3 grams and measures 5.25 inches in length. The provided converter allows it to be filled with any bottled fountain pen ink, and it can also use Pilot brand cartridges. For a similar pen with even more ink capacity, see the Pilot Metal Falcon.
Namiki Falcon Resin Fountain Pen

As of January 2014, the Falcon Resin was re-branded as part of the Pilot rather than Namiki family of pens, with the Namiki moniker being reserved for higher-end Maki-e pens such as the Yukari, Yukari Royale, and Emperor collections. The Falcon Resin is the same terrific pen as before - only the inscriptions on the nib and cap band have changed. For those seeking a Falcon Resin with the classic Namiki name, we still have a limited stock of these original version pens available in Medium or Broad only - Fine is already sold out, but of course remains available in the new Pilot branded version.

Pilot has a well-deserved reputation for creating high quality pens which are also very attractively priced. And for those who love semi-flexible nibs, the Falcon Resin and Metal Falcon series pens offer the most flex of any contemporary fountain pen.

The Falcon Resin is one of the most popular pens for customizations. Nibs can be modified for additional flex (adds $65) or for regrinds to Left Oblique or Cursive Italic (adds $55). It is also, along with the Metal Falcon series and Nakaya brand pens, one of the most popular pens for John's Spencerian customization. This Spencerian customization adds $110 to the price. See our Nib Customizations page for more details.

Unless requested otherwise, each pen or nib you purchase from us will be carefully examined, tested, and optimized for your personal writing characteristics before it ships. See our nib set-up and optimization page for more details.
 
Spencerian Calligraphy with the Falcon Resin
Eleanor Winters' book Mastering Copperplate Calligraphy Below is a sample from customer Kirk Edelman demonstrating the use of a Falcon Resin with John's Spencerian modification. The level of ability seen here requires skill, patience, and practice - we recommend Eleanor Winters' book "Mastering Copperplate Calligraphy" for those wishing to learn this technique.

For another impressive example of a Falcon Resin with John's Spencerian modification, view the video at right. Our talented customer, who chooses to remain anonymous, uses pen and nib with a deftness of technique that has gained this video millions of views on YouTube.
