Pilot Custom Heritage 912 Black Rhodium
The Pilot Custom Heritage 912, with its notched FA (Falcon) nib, serves as the best pen available for our Spencerian customization. But the Custom Heritage 912 is more than just a superb tool for copperplate calligraphy - offering the widest array of nib choices of any contemporary fountain pen, it also serves as a larger companion to the Pilot Falcon Resin and Metal Falcon pens, and with nib choices other than the FA can also be a versatile everyday writer.
If you are looking for a Spencerian customization, select FA from the nib list below.
