RE: Gold, Steel or Other

I have some steel that I really like but I try to stick with gold.  A good
flexible gold is my favorite.
Has anyone used the Namiki Falcon?  Love the nib!

I would not rule out steel. I have some steel flexies on  wartime
Kawecos, Soenneckens, and Pelikans that rival any of the Waterman gold
flexies.

one for stiff nibs but there are some steel nibs that write like their
counterparts.  So when I order a pen or buy one, I normally buy one with a
gold nib, I like the flex and smooth feel.  Of course looks are also nice
too.  IMHO I think Lamy has some of the best steel nibs out there on the
market.

nibmeister, they can make just about any nib feel like gold or whatever you
choose.  I also noticed the price of gold nibs have gone up significantly in
the past 2 years due to the market.  I guess thats why I have not bought
anything in a long time!!!  LoL!!
