Customer Reviews

Iroshizuku Bottled Ink(50ml)
This is my favorite ink. I was surprised to see the color transform as it dries even by the next day to its permanent hue.

Falcon is a beautiful pen. I'm new to fountain pens so don't have lots of comparisons, but I enjoy writing with it. Pen Chalet had the best price on this pen.

Metallic Vanishing Point
Terrific product - terrific price! I have several of the Vanishing Point pens that I rotate for daily use. Although I prefer the Broad point, the Medium point usually works well for daily writing. I also purchased two replacement nibs, so I can change out the Broad point for the Medium in order to rotate them for daily use. Overall, this is an excellent pen and makes a great "daily writer."

MR Metropolitan
This pen writes beautifully. No scratchy dryness and a nice fine line. It comes with squeeze ink reservoir, so you can use bottle inks without an additional purchase. This is the second Pilot Metropolitan I've purchased and may not be the last because the finishes are great colors and the brushed metal finish feels good.

Metallic Vanishing Point
Fantastic pen! I like the feel of it in hand — maybe a tad on the heavier side than I'm accustomed to, but it writes very smoothly with no perceptible feedback. i was told I'd like it, and I really do!

This is my second Vanishing Point pen, this one with a fine nib. It's much smoother than the extra-fine and I can see it becoming my daily writer.

CON-40
The Pilot CON-40 converter works just fine for me. I bought one of theseconverters with the four tiny balls that help ink from staying at the top of the converter for my Pilot Metro Retro Pop (fabulous fountain pens, by the way!) because I couldn't tell how much ink was left in the press style converter that came with the Metro. The press converter is a fine utilitarian converter and I'm certainly keeping it as a contingency, but I'm glad that I got the CON-40 replacement. It doesn't fill to the top, but few pens do and anyway an air pocket is a good thing for flow. The tiny balls are nifty for getting the ink from sticking at the top of the converter. They work. The clicking sound is so soft in my converter that I don't notice a click when I use the pen. Flushing ink residue from the converter has not been a problem for me. And I simply shake out any water that remains after I've expelled cleaning water from the CON-40. I will order more of these for a couple other Metros that I have - love the colors of the Retro Pops.

Vanishing Point Collection
I snapped up possibly The Last of the Raden pens, and I'm ever so glad I did. It's gorgeous! I'm well aware that some people have difficulty writing with Vanishing Points because of the clip location, but if you're like me and can adapt to any writing position you'll be just fine. In fact, you may see your writing improve, as it does force a "correct" hold on you.

CON-70 Piston
I prefer this piston over the CON-40; hold much more ink and the vacuum created by the pump action is great!

Vanishing Point Collection
If you are looking for a fountain pen with good functionality and great value, this is the one. The little 18K gold nib (medium) writes extremely smooth. Later on I also purchased a EF nib which also writes a a charm.

MR Metropolitan
A couple of weeks ago I found a freebee ball-point pen in the parking lot of the local public library. It was better than any pen I used in the 50s or early 60s. But I have moved on! I'm into fountain pens now! Though the free pen in the parking lot was enticing, I'll have or say that the Pilot Metropolitan is a much better value. It's made of brass, has some heft to it, and uses real ink! And you have a variety of options for nib width. Oh. yes! That's something else not available with the parking lot pens. Andthe Metro allows one to get into color matching. The metro is a great foundation for a burgeoning pen collection.

Falcon Collection
This was my first gold nib pen, and I wasn't disappointed. The Soft Extra-Fine is a bit scratchy, but writes well on cheap paper. It's a little flexy too, so there's plenty of line variation when you want it. The Soft Fine or even Soft Medium might be a bit better for normal writing, but the SEF is good for my chicken scratch. Because of the downward curve of the nib, I have to make a conscious effort to hold the pen at a shallower angle to the paper. All said, this is a great pen!

Knight
I bought this as an upgrade from my collection of Metropolitans, and I am really happy with it. The only "issue" I've had is some really dry writing after a couple of lines. This seems to have gotten better, so maybe it was just some residual oil that I was not able to wash away when I got it, but that has now been removed after 10-15 pages of writing.

The grip section I feel like is a hit or miss for many people. The grip is really short and close to the paper, so f you don't want to grip the barrel of the pen when you are writing, you may feel you are holding the pen really far down.

If the grip thing don't seem like a problem to you, I can with all my heart recommend this pen. Great value. If you already have a Metropolitan, Kakuno or any of the other Pilot pens that use this nib, there is nothing stopping you from changing the nibs between them and experiencing this pen with another nib size.
