Outstanding price for a high quality / high value fountain pen. Great writer for a Japanese Fine plus good heft to the pen.

Wonderful seller as well--I appreciate the military discount!

I received my Custom 823 ~ medium nib, "Smoke" this morning. I did not realize that it came with a 70ml bottle of Pilot Blue ink! As this being my first Pilot "823", I read the instructions twice and inked it up. It's such a smooth writer :-) Wow! What a joy to use. I've got a Pilot 742 ~ Waverly nib, Pilot 74 ~ Broad, and another 74 ~ Music, but the medium on this pen is just so good! I'm really at a loss for words.
Thank you P.C. :-)

This pen holds a massive amount of ink and writes incredibly smooth. For the money, the quality of this pen tops numerous high end pens, hands down. Pen Chalet was also superlative in their prompt shipment and quality control of the pen. Highly recommended.

Used up all my rewards and I had a great price with the sale! This has been my absolute favorite pen and is likely one of my grail pens. Writes perfectly out of the box and has not once ever run dry despite lots of drawing and feels very balanced and robust.

Amazing pen. F nib provides a bit of feedback depending on the paper but is also really smooth. The smoke acrylic is also a great color and looks almost black when filled with ink. Writes perfectly out of the box.

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 am absolutely in love with my Pilot Custom 823.. are use it daily I don’t pamper it. At first I was apprehensive, but this is my everyday carry.
It writes so smooth. The ink flows so beautifully onto the paper. I am so happy with that and I am happy that I purchased it from Pen Chalett because their customer service is amazing.

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!
