Pilot's Metropolitan pen is a sleek, smooth-shaped pen great for everyday use. The stylish body features a matte, metallic taupe finish over a brass barrel with chrome accents. A classy yet undeniably wild pattern of lizard scales decorates the band near the cap. 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 black gift box, one black ink cartridge, and an aerometric converter (squeeze converter).

Excellent value, fit & finish for the money.
For some time, I‘ve thought the Pilot 78G was the best deal in an inexpensive fountain pen with a Japanese fine nib, but that has now changed with the Pilot Metropolitan. Although the nib is essentially the same as that on the slightly less-expensive 78G, the Metropolitan cap and barrel are nicer and heftier since they are made of brass.
The fine Japanese nib is more like a Western extra-fine nib.
The taupe and lizard version is very nice looking and, filled with Noodler’s black ink, the pen wrote well right out of the box. However, I also purchased the all-black version and I did make a slight adjustment to its nib. I opened up the tines a little to increase the flow since it was too dry for me (I used thin, .001 and .002 brass shims purchased at Ace Hardware). The nib and feed are friction fit—like the 78G nib and feed—and can easily be pulled out for adjustment or thorough cleaning.
Thanks again to JetPens for offering such a terrific product and for their continued excellent service.

I previously purchased the M nib Metropolitan when it first came out and was very satisfied. I was excited about the F nib because I needed something finer for note-taking. This F nib writes like a western XF, but is just as smooth as the M nib, considering it's narrower nib. The flow is good and the nib moves smoothly over decent paper. I flushed the nib with dilute detergent solution before use. I love that the converter is included along with a cartridge. Very satisfying feel with a nice heft. The metal barrel and cap feel solidly made, looks good, and the cap clicks nicely onto the section without much effort. Posting the cap is adequate, but not foolproof. The clip holds firmly with just the right pressure. A great everyday pen. Feels a lot more expensive than it is.

Highly recommended for anybody wanting a reliable, medium-weight pen and unbeatable for the price.
