Pilot's Metropolitan pen is a sleek smooth-shaped pen great for everyday use. The body features a stylish matte finish over a brass barrel with chrome accents. The slightly wide body and good weightiness make it easy to hold and use, and thus a perfect match for fountain pen novices as well as seasoned users. The pen comes with a box, one black ink cartridge, and an aerometric converter (squeeze converter).

Simply the best pen for the money. I picked up a couple Metropolitans with fine nibs when they came out in Japan, and am happy to see they are finally available domestically. I like this nib much more than the medium which I find a little wide for everyday use (mostly note taking). The fine nibs on these pens are beautiful. Very smooth, medium wetness, perfect for my uses. The Metropolitan is absolutely the best value out there, don't hesitate to buy one for yourself.

Excellent fit & finish for such a price!

The fine nib is more like a Western extra-fine. It's sharp but smooth. I filled the pen with Noodler's Ellis Island blue black and it wrote well right out of the box. After some writing, I decided I wanted a wetter flow and adjustment was simple. The nib and feed are friction-fit, they pulled out easily, and I used .001 and .002 brass shims to open the space between the tines just a little. The nib and feed fit back in place in the section smoothly, and the ink flow was perfect for me after that minor adjustment.
All Metropolitan fountain pens have exactly the same black grip section that holds the nib and feed. The nib and feed are similar to the nib and feed of the Pilot 78G, but the Metropolitan's brass barrel and cap are much sturdier and durable. The cap goes on the barrel with a positive, firm-fitting, secure snap, and it doesn't rotate around like on my more expensive Lamy Studio. Also, if one desires, the Metropolitan's cap can be firmly posted on the barrel.

The Pilot Metropolitan, at the price, is an amazing, excellent value. Thanks to JetPens for offering this fine writing instrument!

I love it. It glides smoothly on paper.
The only negative thing I can say about it is the ink that comes with it. Yes it's a pretty good dark black but it does feather some on cheap notebook paper.
Great price. Great pen. Period.
