"I purchased my Pilot Falcon in store. Great service. I have just found my favorite pen. What a joy to write with. I prefer the resin pens since I like light weight pens. I am left handed so I do not get to enjoy most benefits of a semi-flex nib, however the smooth springy nib is a delight to write with. I am using Noodlers Black ink. I would say that the pen writes on the wet side. The quality is what I would expect from Pilot-great! I also own a Pilot Custom 74, while it is a very good pen this Falcon is a totally different experience. Just my personal taste but I would really love to see the Falcon nib and feed in the 74 body, now that would be a pen!"
