  1. I picked up 3 Lamy Safaris at the first of the year, for use in taking notes in an Accounting class. Charcoal, Blue, and Red (with matching Lamy inks). The pens all worked fine at home, after being flushed before use. But those were the last pens I bought for about 6 weeks. I needed a break after my crazy Nov and Dec Fountain Penning. The other night was the first class. The blue and black ones both clogged up or dried out or something, on the Clairefontaine notebook. I basically was writing nonstop with them - the blue for about 45 min, and the black for the next 45 min. Plus, the charc

    Pilot 823 - Fine Or Fa Nib?

    Hi all, I'm considering to purchase a Pilot 823 (again) but not sure which nib would work better for me. My preference is for fine nibs or Western EF nibs that lay down a wet line. I do like some softness on my nibs too. I've read that the Fine nib on 823 is wet and also has some softness to it. Same for the FA nib, but I'm not sure on the line width on that nib. Read that it can be like a F, FM or M on multiple forums with no pressure. Note that I'm not looking to use flex for daily writing. Any opinions and writing samples on this comparison would be highly appreciated!
  3. The Custom 823 pens have always been highly captivating demonstrators from Pilot Corporation (Japan), sporting the second largest nib (Pilot#15, Namiki#20 nibsize), with a vacuum plunger filling mechanism. The model number 823 refers to the price and year, of launch, although in a slightly intricate manner. Since this pen was released in the year of 2000, 82 years after the company’s inception (i.e. 1918), it carries the first two digits of the model number as ‘82’ and the last digit which is ‘3’ refers to it launch price of JPY 30,000 (3 X 10,000). Also replicated the content with additiona
  4. This thread is for the fans of Frankenpens like me Story short: I own a Pilot 823 with a broad nib and I like the pen but dislike the nib. So I am looking for a nib replacement and Montblanc 146 nibs are normally nice to use and can be bought individually. I already tried to fit a JoWo nib from Franklin-Christoph, but it's too long. Has anybody ever tried to fit a 146 nib in a 823? I worry more about the length of the nib since Pilot nibs are usually short. The width seems to be pretty much the same (#15 from Pilot and #6 western nib) Maybe a nice Waterman vintage nib from the 1920s to
  5. Hi, I recently got a black Pilot 823 and I have been unable to unscrew the section. I tried my hardest, even using Goulet grips for added traction, and it won't budge. At this point I'm afraid I'm not strong enough or if I apply more force it may break the barrel. I have an amber 823 whose section unscrews with no problem. My guess is that the black 823 has some sort of thread locker put in. I created this thread on /r/fountainpens and at least one other person said that their black 823 has a section that won't come off. Has anyone else experienced this? Thanks.
  6. A month or so ago, I bought a Pilot Custom 823 in M from an Amazon reseller. However, the pen just doesn't write about 30% of the time, regardless of blind cap openness, ink, or paper type. Is this a common issue with a common fix, or should I contact Pilot? I bought this pen from Japan and I live in Canada. Resultingly, who should I contact? I've already emailed Crestar and Pilot USA. I've heard about this issue before, but I don't know what to do about it. Thank you so much, FPN!
  7. Hi everyone, Ive been given a pen from a friend, however it does not have the nib or feed. I understand that pilot does not make replacement nibs however, I was wondering a few things. 1. Do any stores carry size 15 pilot Nibs (FA or normal) 2. Does a Size 10 Nib & feed fit into the pen 3. Does a goulet pens size 6 Nib fit the pen 4. Are there any other nibs/ways to use my pen or is it just garbage? Thank you everyone

  9. I have read that the Pilot 823 Demonstrator FA had a limited production and the Tokyo Pen Shop Quill places the pen as unavailable without a specific date of new inventory. Community, do you any news on its availability today?
  10. Hello! I am looking into the Pilot Custom 823 and am curious how the broad nib might compare to a western medium. The only Pilot nibs I've used are a fine and medium, and know those usually run a little bit more narrow than a western nib of the same size. Does the broad Pilot size compare more to the western medium, or is the Pilot broad more to a "true" broad? Thanks for any input or advice!

  12. Hi guys, I just ordered a pilot custom 823 demonstrator which is supposed to be a limited edition. But how limited are pilots limited edition? I know pilot itself is a huge company what numbers should i think of? Do pilot limited edition pens raise / retain value? thanks for your insight guys new here all info and comments greatly appreciated.

    Mould Or Spores In Pilot Custom 823

    It looks like there might be mould or spores in my 823. It could be staining of the grease in the barrel though. Has anyone got any suggestions as to where to get a suitable 'removal' liquid from, here in the UK? Our local pharmacists seem reluctant to speak about this - hardly surprising - and it would be a shame not to clean it out. Phenol or Carbolic Acid just don't seem to be classed as 'over the counter' medicines any more. Shame... So, helpful suggestions, please but the inks I've had in it, don't appear to be contaminated at all, so I guess it's just come from stagnant water. Bye for no

    Pilot 823 After Cross Century?

    Hi. My name is Dan and I'm looking for a new pen. My current pen is a Cross Century (circa 1980's). Decent pen but much smaller than the Pilot 823, which is on my radar . It looks like a Pilot 823 would fit the my needs, but I'm nervous about throwing down $300 USD for a new pen. For folks who have used a much smaller pen like the old Cross Century and now have an 823 (or similar): How difficult was it to switch to a larger pen like the 823?What was your experience changing from a cartridge ink system to a vacuum filling system? Any dislikes and drawbacks? Major likes and benefit
  15. Hi everybody, I've been haunting the forum for a while now without posting anything but now I desperately need some purchase advice. As a university student I need to take a lot of notes every day. I figure 5-10 pages a day isn't all that much for some of you hardcore writers out there but for me it is and therefore need a good pen… or at least want one . My requirement for a pen is that it performs well for fast and long writing sessions. From my research so far I have narrowed it down to the Pilot Custom 823 F or 742 PO / F. I don't really care that much about the price because I'm not a co

    Big Big Dilema... Trilema

    I want to buy an 823 but I also want to buy a Nakaya or a KOP. For the Nakaya I would go with the Orange one. (From Nakaya website) Arai-Shu And for the KOP it would have to be the ebonite (no urushi because it is $1,500 more!) From Sailor website. The good thing about the KOP is that the nib is bigger and it can be a Naginta togi NMF. If I go the 823 route the others pens would have to wait for a year or two. So flashy/nice/stong color vs a good good nib, classical look pen. Don´t know where too ask, you friends of FPN could enlight me with your opinions. I had an XF Nakaya nib wi
  17. My holidays rarely match with others’ in the family. So, last afternoon, while I was staring at the chessboard to play yet another game, I thought of putting the board to a better use than just moving the pieces against myself. So, why not take three big nibs out of their temporary resting places and give them a try. In this fast-paced world, fountain pens have most certainly embarked the sail of luxury, consistent with properties of both time and money. These days, keyboards – physical, on-screen or speech-engine ones have taken over a Pen’s traditional space-time. Thankfully, notebooks and w

    Pilot Vanishing Point <M> Vs Custom 823 <M>

    I've done some searching but couldn't quite find what I'm looking for. I recently purchased a VP with a Fine nib and it's just finer than I would like, so I'm planning on getting a Medium nib unit later in the month. Later in the year I'm hoping to get my hands on a Custom 823. Before I got my VP I was thinking about getting the 823 in a Fine but now I'm likely to go with the medium. Only thing is, from what I've read on the forums, Pilot's VP Medium writes rather similarly to a Western Medium and that there's no real happy medium. Is this the case with the 823? How does a VP Medium comp
