Okay, call me crazy, but I've decided I like the Pliot 823's better than Sailor's. Here's your chance for a trade where you will benefit from my mistake.

I just purchased a brand new Sailor Realo 911 piston fill; sent it off to Greg Minuskin for a .9mm retip. It writes wet, smooth and it's wonderful. But I just don't like the feel of sailor as much as Pilot.

So, I would like to trade my Sailor for your Amber color Pilot 823 with a broad or medium nib. Your pen must be in new to excellent shape with excellent flow. In terms of dollar to dollar, you'll be making out big time.

Okay, let's trade.

Oh yea, I have original box, papers, etc... I'll even include the original receipt for warranty purposes.

Dave

p.s. here's some pic's from Greg of the nib.

Someone offered to trade me a smoke color 823. I'd prefer an amber one but I may take the trade and then see if someone wants to trade an amber for a smoke.

So one last time-- ANYONE HAVE AN AMBER w/a med or broad nib they want to trade for this Sailor?

Blessings,
Dave

I have a smoke with a broad nib. Mint condition. I don't know what kind of nib the other one has.
