Pilot Falcon Resin Red Rhodium

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.

In its unmodified form, the Falcon Resin Red Barrel is a perfect pen for those who would like to add some character to their writing style with a pen still suitable for everyday usage. Varying the pressure while writing will allow some modest line-width variation while still providing the smoothest possible writing experience allowable with a soft nib.

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. 

The provided CON-50 twist converter allows it to be filled with any bottled fountain pen ink, and it can also use Pilot brand cartridges. For similar pens with even greater ink capacity, see the Pilot Metal Falcon or the previously mentioned Custom 912.


The Pilot Falcon Resin Red Barrel is provided with your choice of 14k solid gold soft rhodium-plated nib, and arrives in an elegant gift box with a starter ink cartridge.

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. 

Spencerian Calligraphy with the Falcon Resin


Below is a sample from customer Kirk Edelman demonstrating the use of a Falcon Resin with our 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.
