Newest member of my pen family! A gorgeous Pilot Metallic Elabo, with a Soft Broad nib. This was a gift from a dear friend, and is my first ever Falcon nib. Wow! This pen is like “chocolate for your fingers”, as a friend of mine once put it. The ink is Sailor Jentle Sakura Mori if I’m not mistaken (my Japanese is not exactly fluent), and if I’m not further mistaken, it’s more or less the replacement for Sailor Apricot…? Correct me if I’m wrong about that, but the rich orange-apricot color is just so cheerful and upbeat. It’s in the metallic brown color, but in person, it looks more like a polished bronze color, which is marvelous. It’s pictured atop my Lochby Field Journal. Anyone else enamoured of Falcon nibs? ![Elabo 01|500x500
Looks lovely, My two falcon nibbed pens, both Pilot, are among my favorite. The SF is just a bounce away from winning a pen prize.
