Pilot Custom 823 Collection Video Script

This is the Pilot Custom 823 fountain pen. It comes in a large, black cardboard box. It has a faux leather texture to it, with the Pilot logo embossed in gold on the top of the box. Included with the pen is the informational instruction and use and care guide for the pen, as well as a bottle of Pilot blue ink.

Then of course, we have the Pilot Custom 823 fountain pen. This is the amber color. It comes with a clear translucent cap and barrel, and a brown cap or end on both ends of the pen, on both the barrel and the cap of the pen. That black cap is separated with a gold band. You can see inside the center chamber of the piston filler of the pen where the ink sits.

At the bottom of the cap we have a nice, thick gold band with a thinner gold band. Engraved on that, we have some stars with "Pilot", "Made in Japan," and "Custom 823". Then it has a gold clip with Pilot engraved at the top of the clip; a gold band at the top separating that amber color, translucent cap, with the brown color cap at the end. The cap on the pen unscrews. You can post the cap.

It has a gold nib. On that nib is engraved "Pilot", and some other decorations. To change the ink on this pen, it's a piston fill, so we simply unscrew the end of the pen to dry the piston and fill the ink on the pen.

It's a sharp looking pen. Pilot makes some great writing instruments; they have some great nibs. Get your Pilot Custom 823 fountain pen at PenChalet.com

The fine nib writes smoothly. Very thin line, without being scratchy. My best writing pen so far.

This was a grail pen for me and I have not been disappointed with any aspect of the pen. It has been in continuous use for the past 9 months and I have not put it away since I received it. I ordered the amber in the fine nib which is relatively smooth, has good flow with some slight feedback which I enjoy. The vac filler is convenient to use and it holds a large volume of ink over 2 ml. I am now considering the smoke with a medium nib to add to my collection. Great pen and no regrets with my purchase.

This pen is awesome. I wish I would have bought this sooner. It writes like a dream. It is one of the smoothest writing pens I own - very smooth. And I've only tried it with the ink that came with it. This will definitely be in the daily rotation. I may be buying another one I like this so much.

I absolutely love it. I cannot give technical reasons but it feels great in the hand. So comfortable to write with. I want the black one now.

One of the best pens ever made, what else can I say? Mine is Broad, perfect for 7mm lined paper. Only thing is you need write with the cap off to prevent starvation. I would rather have one of these than multiple cheap feeling and poorly made TWSBI's.

Lovely pen, classic style. Good weight and balance (unposted) in the hand. The only gripe I have is forgetting the Japanese pen widths are narrower than elsewhere. I could happily have used a broad.

The Custom 823 is one of those legendary pens that people rave and rave about. After finally getting this one (Amber, with a fine nib) in hand, I can see why.

The vacuum-filling mechanism is fun, and this thing holds a huge amount of ink. (It's going to take me forever to write it dry with this fine nib.) I like that the ink chamber seals off - I've already done a bit of traveling with it, and I've had no problems whatsoever. It feels sturdy and substantial in the hand, with a good amount of heft but not too much. (Unposted, the balance for me is perfect; posted, it's a little back-heavy, and I can take it or leave it.) The brown and gold are very pleasant to my eye and make every session with them a little more enjoyable.

The real star of this show, though, is the big no. 15 gold nib. This thing writes perfectly, every single time, from the very first fill. I just never have to worry about it. I don't have to adjust my writing angle for a "sweet spot" or anything like that. It almost feels, well, custom-made for me. It's a Japanese fine, for sure, very thin, which means there's a bit of feedback, but that's to be expected - this is about as smooth as a nib this fine can be.

In terms of writing performance and aesthetic quality, the 823 is pretty darn close to perfect in my view. If you can swing it, I highly recommend it.

The Pilot Custom 823 meets all of my expectations. I purchased the Amber with a fine nib. Initially had some feedback, but has gotten smoother over a short period of time. It has already reached the "must be replaced" status if it is every broken, lost or stolen!
