I love these Falcon pens because all the components are made here in the US. A machine shop in GA fabricates the metal parts for the pen, and I cast the body of the pen in my shop using Alumilite resin and premium mica based pigments from a company in Texas. The ink cartridge is about the only part coming from over seas and I use premium ink from Germany.
The stainless steel body lends a bit of heft to this pen style, without being overly heavy. I find these to have excellent balance in the hand with a good solid twist mechanism on the top to extend and retract the tip. I've polished the resin body to a smooth finish and you'll love the depth of the colors in the light.
My prices include shipping costs and this pen comes standard with a premium Schmidt Easy Flow ballpoint cartridge. I do offer a gel rollerball option if you prefer gel ink. All pens ship in clear plastic tubes to protect them in shipping. If you are gifting, I'd highly recommend the attractive black gift box.
