This cool Sapphire Falcon Metal pen is a sturdy upscale variation on the hugely popular Black Resin Namiki Falcon. This lacquered metal body has a little more heft and a larger converter for greater ink supply but uses the same flexible 14k gold nib as the resin pen, but with rhodium plating to match this pen's elegant exterior trim.

The Metal Falcon is slightly heavier and longer than its resin cousin - it has a more substantial feel between the fingers. At the same time, it still offers a comfortable and easy grip, with its added quarter inch of length providing balance for the extra weight. It also allows this pen to use the high-end Pilot premium converter, which holds considerably more ink than the standard filler.

While the Resins offer the look of a classic workhorse pen, the Metal and rhodium series suggests something different - sportier, distinctive, and more substantial. But what the both the Resin and the Metal pens have in common is the unique flexing properties of the Falcon nib.

The shape of this nib is ideally suited for flexibility. With moderate pressure, the tines spread, making a wider line. The broad nib seen here can be customized to a flexible left oblique, a great point for correspondence which allows for considerable line-width variation.
Another favorite customization utilizes the extra fine point not available in the resin model. We take it down to an extra-extra fine and add more flexibility, making it the best contemporary nib for flowing Spencerian script.
