Pilot Reviews

Capless Decimo
I love this pen! I am one of those people that holds their pen weird, so the clip does bother me during long writing sessions and makes it more difficult to keep the nib in the "sweet spot", but the nib makes up for all of that! I have the fine nib and it is so smooth and writes so nice-I really just love it!

Limited Edition Vanishing Point
I missed the Twilight L E a few years ago, so I pounced on the Crimson Sunrise. The purple looks metallic. The red-orange looks like lacquer. It's stunning. It's a lot of fun to choose ink colors for it. Smooth nib. Pen Chalet has terrific customer service. You can pre-order items in high demand.

This is a beautiful pen--I bought the burgundy and ivory one. It's light and easy to handle and has a wonderful extra-fine point.

I've been using fountain pens since I was in high school, and this is one of the best I've ever owned.

This is my first golden nib Pilot. It's very lightweight and just the right size for my small hands. Very easy to fill with ink and very smooth writer. Overall delight.

Not just a great entry level fountain pen: it's a very nice, solid, beautifully crafted everyday pen. I grew up with Pelikans and Watermans; this Pilot is less expensive but at least as robust as any of their student level pens.
The nib is very smooth, flow is just right with only minimal pressure against the paper needed. Much less scratchy than an Aurora Talentum nib, for example.

Custom 823 Collection
After hearing all the hype over the years about what a great pen this was I finally had to break down and buy one. There is absolutely no disappointment on my behalf about that decision, the Custom 823 is one of the best, if not the best, writing pens I own and I own some that are quite a bit more expensive than the 823 is. I'm in complete agreement with Matt Armstrong that if you could only have one pen to use for from now on out this would be the one that I chose. A great pen and worth every penny that it costs.

Custom 823 Collection
I originally purchased the medium nib based on the conventional line of thought about Japanese nibs being finer than other nibs. While that may be true for some Pilot nibs, it isn't for the 823. The medium nib on the 823 writes a very smooth, but heavy line. I exchanged the medium for a fine nib, and am very pleased with how the fine writes. It provides a finer line with more feedback, but it writes extremely smooth and the ink flow is perfect.

The vacuum fill system works as easy as described. The pen does post top-heavy, but not so much that it becomes uncomfortable.

I received excellent customer service from the Pen Chalet, with no questions asked about the exchange.

I was able to purchase these from Pen Chalet using a discount code and for the money these have proven to be an outstanding value.
Even at the original asking price, these pens are well worth the money for as an everyday use pen.
The writing smoothness and ink delivery is superior to that of a Sheaffer VFM, a similarly priced pen that I also own.

I am soooo very pleased with my pen, I have other pens I have paid ALOT for and this pen outdoes them all. The FINE NEB is exactly as I wanted. As soon as I can, I am coming back for more pens, nibs, converters that I have needed for years but didn't know how to or where to order them. Thank you Pen Chalet and Teri Morris, you have my deepest respect for being what every company should be like.

This pen is truly excellent. Pilot does a wonderful job with the design and nibs on these pens. I have no tried the matte versions, but the rhodium or gold accents are stunning in person. I have the Raden Galaxy and the Blue Carbonesque; both are very eye catching. The pens are weighty, and I don't mind the grip. Not a very large ink capacity but I don't mind a bit. Would recommend for a unique piece to add to your collection.
