The Pilot Custom 823 fountain pen gift set comes with a Pilot Gift Box, a Use and Care Guide and a 70 ml Pilot fountain pen ink in black colour.

Pilot Custom 823 Fountain Pen is one of Pilot’s flagship fountain pens. This pen combines classic styling with a touch of modernity. The amber body colour and gold trim are part of the classic look and the transparent demonstrator creates a feeling of modernity. It also features a 14k gold nib and an innovative vacuum filling system.

Thanks to the vacuum filling system, the Custom 823 holds more ink than the standard cartridge and is a breeze to fill. Simply unscrew and pull out the plunger, dip the nib up to the neck in your ink and depress the plunger. The ink is drawn up into the pen under vacuum pressure as you push the plunger into the pen body. To keep the ink where it should be, the pen has a built-in valve. When the plunger knob is fully tightened, it seals off the ink reservoir. This means that in order to write, you need to loosen the plunger knob to allow ink to flow to the nib. The knob only needs to come out 2 mm from the body.

The pen is slightly longer than most fountain pens, making it comfortable in the hand uncapped. The body is remarkably well-balanced no matter when it is capped or not capped.

*Please do not try to unscrew the grip section. It is not meant to unscrew and may crack.

Holds a lot of ink

The vacuum filling system is great. It’s quick and with no mess. This pen holds a lot of ink, so it’s wonderful for people like me who writes a lot. I’ve been using Pelikan Souveran M600 with Fine nib. Compared to the Pelikan, Pilot’s Fine nib is significantly finer.

The Custom 823 is a bit of a style classic even if it is a touch plain compared to other makes and designs. The nib is superb out of the box and is destined to be spectacular as we get used to each other. The service from Bunbougu was also superb. Timely shipping and attentive service. I have and will continue to return for other items. Thank you.

Fabulous pen but don’t forget the flow adjustment knob before writing.
