The expert’s opinion: the Custom 823 is a special model because not only is its vacuum filling system original, but it also gives a particular pleasure in its use. Filling the Custom 823 is the pleasure of handling the plunger, but also of seeing the ink fill the resevoir in one go. So much so that we almost wish the tank had a smaller capacity so that we could fill it more often! The metal piston rod adds weight to the fountain pen, making it particularly well balanced even if the cap is not swapped. The feeder allows for a generous flow, especially if you unscrew the plunger knob very slightly (1mm) to open the safety valve. This is what we recommend you do if the ink does not flow properly. This is the price of the Custom 823’s perfect watertightness which makes it absolutely reliable. As for the nib, fans of Japanese nibs will be delighted by its size and aesthetics and, of course, by its smoothness on the paper and its regularity in writing…

Custom 823 Black Fountain Pen from Pilot: an exceptional model for smooth writing

Created in 2001, the Custom 823 quickly became a flagship model at Pilot for several reasons, two of which are its filling system and the size of its nib.

A fountain pen from the demonstrator family, the Custom 823 is made of ultra-resistant acrylic resin, tinted with an absolutely beautiful smoked black colour. This colour is further enhanced by the gold-plated trims: the superb ballpoint clip recognisable from the Japanese brand, fine rings on the barrel and cap and the splendid central ring engraved with the model name and brand name, both surrounded by stars. The ends of the body and cap stand out nicely with their shiny black colour, both matching the section.

Let’s turn to the famous internal mechanism: it is simply unique at Pilot as it is a vacuum filling system. In order to fill the fountain pen, the knob on top of the barrel is unscrewed and pulled out: the piston comes out of the reservoir to its stop point (seal). Then dip the fountain pen into the ink bottle and do the opposite by pushing the piston into the barrel (before screwing the knob back in). This is when the air-ink exchange takes place and the reservoir fills up (to 3/4). Note that the body of the model is particularly large, offering a very large ink capacity (1.5 ml) = about 2.5 times a conventional converter. Furthermore, when the plunger button is completely screwed in, an exclusive safety valve closes the ink tank. This means that there is no risk of leakage, even at very high altitudes (e.g. in a plane).

As far as the nib is concerned, Pilot has chosen to equip the model with a n° 15 nib, larger in width and length than the usual n° 10 nib, certainly in accordance with the large capacity of the tank. The nib is beautifully engraved in 14 carat gold and is available in F, M and B sizes.

The Custom 823 will be delivered to you, set on a lovely light grey cloth, in a beautiful box with a beautiful 70ml bottle of black ink.

    Outre son écrin et son flacon d’encre, le stylo est une merveille tant au niveau de sa plume que de son design (sobre, mais élégant). Débit régulier, plume relativement souple, stylo équilibré et très agréable à utiliser.

    Le bonheur d’écrire grâce à nos amis Japonais et Pilot en particulier.
