What an amazing pen!...
July 9, 2015

What an amazing pen! The body is made of a smooth metal, but not too slick that it slides out of your hand. The weight is wonderful and the ever so slightly wider pen body fits comfortably in my hand, and keeps my hand from cramping after lots of writing. The nib, while labeled Fine, is a Japanese Fine so it is incredibly precise and thin, and is an absolute pleasure to write with. Using the Iroshizuku ink in this makes the pen just absolutely delicious to write with. My only complaint is some of the more colorful bodies have a cheap-looking animal print ring around them, which is just kind of ugly (why I eventually went with the all-silver one).

Honestly, I never knew I liked fountain pens before I used this pen (I stayed with my Hi-Tec-C's), but this has been such a wonderful investment! I couldn't be happier!

I will say don't store your pen upside-down or sideways in a pen case as you're just asking for ink to leak, but it has so far only had a little bit of ink show up on the nib, amazingly! Anyone who wants to try a fountain pen should DEFINITELY buy one (or all, for all of the Iroshizuku colors!) of the Pilot Metropolitans.

Am I the only person...

Am I the only person who doesn't love this pen? It's a really fine point, much finer than my Preppy or TWSBI fines, and a very dry writer. It's not scratchy, but it has a lot of feedback due to being so fine. But the real deal-breaker, for me, is the ridge where the cap snaps on. It's right where my fingers go, and it's very uncomfortable. I can handle a bit of a ridge or threads like on most pens, but this thing has a ledge there. I gave the pen to my husband and he loves it. Go figure. Now he's after my ink, but that's a different story....

All of the other reviews I read about this pen were what actually convinced me to buy it. I have not been disappointed in that choice. This pen writes like a dream straight out of the box. I am currently using the Diamine Shimmering Seas ink in this and the fine nib. I have several other pens that are on both ends of the price spectrum and this one writes as well as any two hundred dollar pen out there. I use this as my daily writer and it gets used for writing work orders, draft estimates and the myriad of other daily writing chores of a contractor. There was no scratchiness or other irritating quirks to the pen that I can really tell, it just writes smooth and fluid.
