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.
