The gorgeous Pilot Custom 743 Black fountain pen has a black resin body with a gold-plated clip and trim. The 14kt gold nib is a #15 size, and the Falcon nib is marked FA, and performs with a slight flex or bounce like the Pilot Custom 912 with the Falcon FA nib.

The Pilot Custom 743 has the same body size and shape as the familiar Pilot Custom 823 but the 743 uses a CON-70 converter or cartridge filling system, both of which are included. The pen comes with a full bottle of ink in a unique design, in a larger satin-lined presentation box.

Please note that Japanese nib sizes tend to run on the finer side, so your line with will be thinner than with a western nib.

Additional Pilot ink cartridges and other Pilot converters are also available.
