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

I have had my 823, fine nib, for roughly a week now. Straight out of the box this pen wrote - and writes - brilliantly. The nib glides and the pen is neither bulky nor thin despite the voluminous ink capacity. My first inking, as it were, lasted me a week and I have written with this pen everyday and rather extensively. Furthermore, the 823 is without question the best fine nib I have ever used, and I speak as someone who has something of a fountain pen addiction. It's a traditional looking, cigar-shaped pen (I have the smoke edition which to my eyes is black). Simple, but superlative. If I had to recommend one pen, this would be it. And if I had to recommend one company from which to purchase the Custom 823, Pen Chalet is it.

I've wanted a gold-nib fountain pen for years. The Pilot Custom 823 was worth the wait. This pen checks all of the boxes. The nib is so smooth and wet that I can barely feel it moving across the paper. Ink capacity is terrific. Weight, balance and grip diameter are all near-perfect. The 823 is extremely comfortable even for long writing tasks.

The vacuum filling mechanism requires a little getting used to but it's not problematic at all.

This order was my first experience with Pen Chalet and that experience was 1st rate! Ordering was easy, shipment was prompt and communication was very good.

Thanks Pen Chalet!

This is my most expensive pen yet and it it so worth it. The amber color is elegant looking especially with my brown ink. The fine nib writes extremely smoothly. It is very comfortable to write with and I have small hands. I have to practice filling it but even though I didn't get it completely full the first time, it will last many pages. I love it. Treat yourself!

Easily one of my favorite pens. I ordered a F nib. It was exactly as I had expected and functions really well as an office pen. I subject it to regular office copy paper and there is no bleed through. Fit and finish of the pen was great.

This is a great pen. I had been wanting one for about a year before I finally bought one. This pen is far and away the best pen that I have ever written with. Right out of the box I knew this pen was one to keep. The filling mechanism, ink capacity, style and design of this pen are out of this world. If a person wants a daily writer that can be used for a lifetime, one needs to own one of these pens.

This is a Very Nice and Smooth Pen. I have the Broad sized nib for this particular pen because I haven't used a Japanese nib size this large before - my others are all Fine and Extra-Fine, with a sprinkling of Medium. The ink system is okay. I'm more a Converter Kinda Guy, so this takes a little practice and getting used to filling. Once you are familiar with filling the pen, it is pretty much a breeze and the pen holds a good amount of ink as well.

My favorite, favorite pen. The M nib is smooth and the overall writing experience is fantastic. Only could be tedious to clean if you are used to cartridge/converters. I don't mind. It's just more time with my favorite pen. :)

I'm in love with my Pilot Custom 823 with Fine nib. I'm a Pilot fan and that started last year when I started into my fountain pen rabbit hole. I went from Pilot Metropolitans, Capless/Vanishing Point, Elite 95s, Custom 74, Custom Heritage 912 and now the 823. I have other pen manufacturer experiences as I love my Leonardos, Montegrappa, and Franklin-Christoph pens to name a few. It's my 823 that stands out among the others. It's my fave, my EDC, the one pen that I carry in my Galen portfolio and journal with everyday. This pen is well balanced in my hand when posted. Consistent writer. Lovely fine lines when I write. Smooth writer. Feels great when I write with it page after page. Love the Vac Fill. Have no issues with cleaning my pen. This is also my travel pen. A work horse pen. Glad I made this purchase.

The best fountain pen on the planet. Writes so smooth. I prefer the Fine nib over the Medium nib (Own both). I do a lot of writing daily on nice Marumon notepads. This Pilot Cutom 823 (F) with Noodlers Heart of Darkness Black ink is simply an amazing experience. Thank You Pen Chalet for your awesome pricing, fast shipping and GREAT Customer .Service...(I used to be a huge Lamy 2000 (F) fan....No longer...Pilot has won me over. I have had to send my (2) Lamy 2000s out for nib tuning. (2) within 2 months...Come on Lamy get your Quality control..in line with your awesome brand name/history....
