Bottom Shelf: This pen has been gently used, but is otherwise in great shape. While every effort to clean these pens is made, you might see residual ink or water, as they are not brand new. All Bottom Shelf sales are final.

This gorgeous Pilot Custom 743 fountain pen comes in a black resin body with gold accents. The #15 size 14k gold nib comes in a wide range of nib size options. Each nib has a unique, smooth and effortless writing experience.

The Custom 743 fountain pen has the same size body as the Custom 823 but fills with the included CON-70 converter or Pilot ink cartridge. It comes in a gift box with a 70ml bottle of Pilot Blue ink.

Whether planning on gifting this exquisite pen, or writing with it personally daily, the Custom 743 offers an unsurpassed writing experience that will delight fountain pen aficionados.
