Pilot (Namiki) Falcon Soft Extra-Fine

When I heard Pilot was coming out with a rhodium-trim resin Falcon in a soft extra-fine nib, I was really, really excited to see how it performed. I've used the soft extra-fine nib on the Pilot Metal Falcon, and it is awesome (though expensive). But the nib on the brand-new rhodium-trim Pilot Falcon is everything I hoped it would be. For $144, this pen will be the new standard for gold flex nibs. I threw the macro lens on my Canon 5DMk3 and just had a blast. No music or fancy frills, this video is all just to show you what a hack like me can do with a completely non-custom Pilot Falcon soft extra-fine.
