    Default Pilot Custom 823 Clear with FA Nib




    Is it really possible to hit two home runs with one swing? Well sure - and offered here is an example.

    The Pilot Custom 823 is a well known and longstanding crowd favorite, but two things make this one more special:


    1. This Clear version was not released outside of Japan

    2. This piece has the prized FA nib with its elastic cutouts for added flex



    As most of you probably know, the iconic 823 is a Vacuum filler. The pen holds about 2.5 ml of ink, or around 5 times as much as a typical cartridge converter pen. The 14K gold nib is a Pilot #15, which is around the size of a #6. This nib is the not often seen FA nib featuring elastic cutouts for added flex.

    The pen measures about 148 mm long closed, 131 mm long uncapped, and 165 mm long posted. The twist off cap posts very securely.

    The pen is in excellent lightly used condition and writes with Pilot's typical smoothness. I do not have the box.


    $400 includes shipping within US.

    Shipment outside US may be available at cost. Please inquire.

    If you like the 823 but are looking for a lower price, I also have one in Amber that I will be listing separately.
