With its soft semi-flexible 14k nib, the Pilot Falcon Resin in cherry red offers one of the most flex of any contemporary fountain pen and has become very popular as one of the best choices for our noted Spencerian customization. Available in a true extra fine tip size, this pen exploits the difference between thick and thin lines to advantage.
The most recent addition to Pilot's highly popular Falcon series, the Falcon Resin Red Barrel features a rhodium-plated version of the same solid gold semi-soft 14k nib made available in the original Black with gold trim model. The vibrant cherry color and rhodium trim bring a whole new look to this versatile and very reasonably-priced writing instrument.
For those who would like to push their writing style farther, however, the Red Barrel also provides an excellent starting point for our customizations, including the modification for added flex and his well-known Spencerian customization. Only the Custom 912 with FA nib, also produced by Pilot, surpasses the Falcon series in suitability for this customization.
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.
