This is my new and improved Namiki Falcon fountain pen.
I had purchased the pen nearly two years ago, because I was intrigued with the idea of a fountain pen with a flexible nib. However, in the course of two years, I hadn't used the pen much at all. I had hoped it would yield a nice contrast between thick and thin strokes, but that wasn't the case for me. The above photo was taken before I had the nib modified. The image originally appeared in THIS POST.
After my initial blogpost about the pen, nibmeister Greg Minuskin contacted me about adding some flex and a needlepoint regrind to my pen. This past summer I decided to finally do it and prepared my Namiki Falcon for the flight to Greg.
I am very happy with Greg's work! His turnaround time was speedy quick. I am really pleased with the contrast between the thick and thin strokes.
I have been playing with the pen using Pilot Iroshizuku fountain pen ink. This yummy color is Sweet Persimmon Red. I purchased the ink at: JetPens
