Pilot Custom 823 is a unique, luxurious fountain pen perfect for everyday writing. This fountain pen features a resin cap and barrel in a unique smoky transparent black. The remaining ink supply is visible through the tinted barrel. Ink is drawn into the pen using a plunger vacuum refilling system, as opposed to using a converter or cartridge, holding 1.5cc. This allows the user to fill the pen with the bottled ink effortlessly. The Custom 823 comes complete in an attractive gift set that includes a gift box and a bottled blue ink (INK-70-L).
