Custom 823 Collection
There’s a lot to like about this pen. It’s visually attractive, has a super large ink capacity and it is a lovely smooth writer. I chose the medium nib and it’s perfect. The link flow and line width are equivalent to my Lamy 2000 fine nib. The only slight negative is the piston plunger has to be unscrewed every time you write otherwise the ink flow dries fast and the pen skips.

Custom 823 Collection
Believe the hype. This pen is a dream. It performs flawlessly right out of the box. Every detail is perfect--the weight, the size, the nib. The vacuum filler is a delight to use, and really helps set this pen apart from other similar offerings in the Pilot lineup. I use the Visconti Traveling Inkwell to fill it, which allows me to take full advantage of the 823's massive ink capacity.

I spent a lot of time debating whether to get the amber or the smoke version. I decided to go with the amber, and I'm glad I did. The amber is lighter than the smoke, and lets you see the ink and vacuum plunger much more clearly. It's also more unique. You don't want your 823 to be mistaken for a run-of-the-mill gray pen!

I spent a lot of time deciding which ink to use in this pen. I decided to go with Noodler's Golden Brown. It's the perfect combination. It looks great with the amber, and the shading really comes through, even with the F nib.

Stargazer
Beautifully executed pen in all aspects. A small pen - (between a Montblanc Mozart and a regular Platinum, slightly smaller than a Prera) but perfect for shirt pocket or journal. My “M” nib is quite fine, just a bit of feedback. I like this pen a lot.

This fine nib gives lovely effortless writing, with consistent line density. Perfect compliment for the extra-fine nib I use as well. The reservoir is easy to fill and ink distribution is efficient and long lasting.

Vanishing Point Collection
perfect pen. pen chalet gave me an option to change the nip to 1mm stub, which serves me in every aspect to my full satisfaction.
solid high build quality, very smooth nip

ink sucking hole is about an inch above from the tip of the nip, therefore, snorkel would be required to fill it up from bottled ink.

Not my favorite pen, but very well made and the nib was well tuned. I have become more a fan of larger nibs, so if you like finer nibs you will probably like this pen.

I love to write with this pen. It writes so effortlessly with a beautiful ink look. I usually write with one of my fountain pens, but this might be my new favorite. Can’t beat the prices from Pen Chalet for quality pins.

Really like the versatility of being able to easily change nibs in my Vanishing Point pens. All sizes perform nicely. The only down side is they do not hold as much ink as others, but that is not a big problem for me.

Custom 74
I have to rate this pen as a "perfect." Pilot make such great pens, and the Custom 74 is no exception. I purchased the violet, and filled it with J. Herbin Violet, and it's a great match. The fine gold nib delivers the line width I like best (Japanese fine, not too wet), and it's a smooth ride with very little feedback (at least in a Leuchtturm 1917 journal). I don't seat the cap when I write, so it's a good weight in my hand — not heavy, easy to control, and the length comfortably fits my slightly larger than average woman's hand. The ink doesn't seem to dry out when capped. I liked my Custom 74 medium, but this fine is everything I could ask for in a fountain pen.

Vanishing Point
I ordered a stub nib for one of my VPs and it was well worth it! At 1.0 mm it's a tiny bit smaller than a lot of stubs, but noticeable. The line variation is good and it is very smooth and relatively wet. I get lots of sheening with Monteverde Horizon Blue. Great nib!

Raden Stripe Vanishing Point
An absolutely stunning pen.

It is a nice blend of functionality and elegance. The ease of uncapping/capping with just a click is so nice when taking notes. The elegant flair of the raden as it catches the light is mesmerizing. This is truly a beautiful pen!

The Medium nib is incredibly smooth. Despite the small nib, it has a soft bounce to it. When combined with its smoothness; it is a pleasure to write with.

The clip does not bother me much as I write. If your are used to the triangular grip of a Lamy safari you will quickly adapt to the the grip section of a vanishing point.
