Exciting news from Pilot-Namiki - the Falcon Resin, previously available only in gold trim, will also be made available in a new rhodium trim version starting in January 2014. Both trim versions are being re-branded as part of the Pilot rather than Namiki family of pens, with the Namiki moniker being reserved for higher-end Maki-e pens such as the Yukari, Yukari Royale, and Emperor collections.
The Falcon Resin will be the same terrific pen as before - only the inscriptions on the nib and cap band will be changing. For those seeking a gold trim Falcon Resin with the classic Namiki inscription, we still have stock of these original version pens available. Both the gold and rhodium trim Falcon Resin pens will retail for $180, with our price still $144.
