Steel and gold nib sizes write differently. Gold is more wider than steel. Also steel is more toothy.

 
Yeah I think I need to get some Metropolitans in different nib sizes so I can get a feel for what my next "real" Pilot acquisition will be. A Medium might well be right for the big book.

+1 on the 823.

I have a black one with an XF nib and I love it. I used to write a lot with Sakura pens but the 823 easily outperforms those. And with about 2.5ml I refill it about every 10-14 days. Also the XF is really close to my 0.2mm Rotring Isograph.

I wish the 845 had the 823's filling mechanism as I'd prefer ebonite to plastic.

Hello,

How did you get EF nib with 823? I don't think that is available.

Best Regards
Mew

Live my 823. Got it with the FA nib which makes great use of the extra capacity

The 823 was my first expensive pen. I had that sick feeling after buying it, but once it arrived, I was ridiculously excited. I still enjoy writing with it. I wish I'd been able to purchase one in the color you have, but I am nevertheless quite satisfied with it.

 

I buy my pens for writing, so may yours give you many years of writing!

My amber 823 just arrived, it's drying out, post-flush. I can't wait to ink it up. I got to say, it's a pen with a big presence.
