A cartridge-converter pen that is the same size as the piston-filling Custom 823 series, the Pilot Custom 743 Black offers the opportunity to get our noted Spencerian customization on a gold trim pen that is slightly longer than the also popular Custom Heritage 912. But the 743 offers more than just the notched FA nib as an option. With nibs available in Extra Fine, Fine, Medium, Broad, and Double Broad, this is a pen that is suitable for most any use you can think of - whether it's a simple unmodified Extra Fine, Fine, or Medium for daily note taking, or a Broad or Double Broad with our Cursive Italic or Architects Point customization, this pen can offer a nib for most any form of writing you're looking to do.

The provided converter allows the pen to fill using any bottled fountain pen ink, and the pen can also use convenient Pilot brand disposable ink cartridges, now available in 19 different carefully nuanced colors. A stylish presentation box is also included. We are an authorized Pilot dealer.
