The Pilot Custom 823 fountain pen in Amber is a unique alternative to the everyday user-grade fountain pen. The pump filling system creates a vacuum on the downstroke, filling the barrel about 2/3 full of ink, similar in function to the Sheaffer pens of the 1930's. For best results, follow the instructions on the label on the cap. The smoky transparent amber cap and barrel are accented with gold trim, and the 14k nib is extremely smooth and offers a wonderful writing experience.
The pen comes with a full bottle of ink in a unique design, in a larger satin-lined presentation box.
It's the workhorse everyone says it is. Great investment.

This pen is truly a fantastic pen. It writes like a dream. I am very happy that I made the decision to buy it.

A pen I wouldn't want to be without
"If I could take only one pen with me during the day, it would be the Pilot Custom 823, medium nib. Here are the reasonsâ€¦
** Even though it is a longer pen, it is slimmer than most similar long pens and it is light - though not flimsy. My small hands find it easy to hold and write with over a long period of time.
** I prefer to used pens unposted and the 823 is perfect for unposted use.
** The pen is a very smooth writer with a gold nib that glides easily over the paper.
** It is the quietest writing fountain pen I have ever used - a plus!
** It has a huge ink capacity, which is also a pleasure for long writing sessions.
** While I love pens in bright colors and have a number of them, I enjoy the classic look of the 823 in Amber. Since I use it for much general purpose writing, I have a â€œclassicâ€ color ink in it. It is inked with Pilot Iroshikuzu Yama-guri which is a beautiful brown which compliments the penâ€™s color."
