Description The Esterbrook 048 Falcon Dip Pen Nib is Falcon style and was the basis for Esterbrook's flexible 2048/9048 Re-New-Point nib units. Bronze in color, flexible and has slits on the sides for ease of flexibility. Ribbed tipping area allows for ink to more easily stay on the nib meaning fewer dips. Vintage nib ca. 1940's.
