The Pilot Custom 823 fountain pen in Smoke 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 smoke grey 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.

Smooth comfy in the hand, eleh

Pilot always delivers. This pen glides across the page while it pleases the eye to watch in action. Worth every penny, this is a true workhorse pen.

Pilot Custom 823 - Smoke

A very good pen. While pricey, this writing instrument is well made, balanced properly and feels good in the hand. The Pilot 14K nib is somewhat stiff and the Medium delivers a fair amount of ink to the paper but not to an excess; it always seems to be under control. Additionally, the piston/pump filling system works well, too. While it takes a small bit of practice, once you've got it down you have a very good reservoir of ink.

Anderson Pens was responsive, friendly and prompt.
