Pilot Elabo (FE-25SR) is an updated version of the Namiki Falcon. The major update is the larger barrel to house the CON-70 converter, rhodium plated trim and metallic finish. the Elabo has soft nib as its predecessor, available as SEF, SF, SM and SB nibs, and four colors: black, burgundy, brown and sapphire. it is often refereed as "Metal Falcon" or "Metal Elabo".

Actually, the FE-25SR should be the third generation of the Elabo family,
the Namiki Falcon is the second generation
