For sale is a Pilot Custom 743 with the flexible FA nib. This pen has only been inked a couple of times, notice the pen is still stickered and comes with all original packaging. The Custom 743 is a large mid-sized pen that measures 149mm capped, 15.7mm in diameter, and weighs a comfortable 26g. The pen comes installed with the CON-70 pump converter and can be used with Pilot’s cartridges if one chooses.
The 14k gold FA nib is soft and flexible providing wonderful line variation. With no pressure, the nib produces a fine line measuring 0.3-0.4mm. With moderate to heavy pressure, the FA nib can flex as wide as 1.5-1.8mm. The nib is incredibly smooth both in the flexed and non-flexed positions. Flow is moderate and some railroading will be experienced depending on which ink and paper is used and also how fast and far the nib is flexed.
The pen has been described to the best of my abilities. Please refer to the images for details. Click each image to embiggen. All sales are final. No returns.
