Hari,

 

Is there any major difference between this and pilot celemo. This is because that the exterior looks remarkably similar right down to the black lining in the clip. What is the cost of this pen

vig,
this is slightly upscale and has more nib options. if u are happy with your celemo and you are not an obsessive pen collector, then you don't need this pen.
reg price, I have mentioned that in the review itself. pls read the last paragraph.

Nice. Kind of old school Japanese.

Hari,
Very nice pictures, your pictures seem to be of a professional quality.
I really like the Pilot brand of pens and decided to step up from my Prera to a Custom.
As usual for Pilot, right out of the box it writes very smooth. I chose the M nib.
It is a light pen but it feels very nice in the hand and writes well either posted or not.
I am quite happy with my new toy.

Regards.
Be Happy, work at it. Namaste

Dear Fountain pen lovers! I am relatively new to fountain pens. I have a pilot prera fine. Is it worth to buy a pilot custom fk700r fine? Is there a real difference in writing feelings? Thanks a lot.

If you can get a Custom 742 for $100 on auction on Ebay, or a Custom 743 for $150. Those are size 10 or 15 nibs. No converter, but if you have a spare... It's not much more for a better pen, and if you think you deserve a better pen, you might have 1 instead of 3. These pens are meant for users, so if you think that it's worth the premium to get a Custom 823, and maybe it is, or maybe it's not. There are no flaws in these Custom 74, 742, 743. But you're paying for a pen, you're not paying for extras.
