I love this pen to pieces....

I love this pen to pieces. It looks great, has a good weight, and the fine nib writes smoothly (line thickness similar to an 0.4mm roller ball) with only a slight amount of scratching on a Field Notes memo book.

I previously had the medium nib "dot" version of this pen, and it wrote about an 0.7 mm equivalent line thickness and bled a bit on the Field Notes memo book. I recommend both versions.

I'm still using the ink cartridge it came with.

I adore this pen. I originally bought the medium, which is nice, but a fine nib is so much nicer. Good heft and writes very smoothly. This is now my everyday pen.

I have used several more expensive fountain pens in the past, and this one really impressed me both from the standpoint of its design and the quality of the writing experience. As soon as I started using this pen, I immediately wanted to order more of them. I would highly recommend this pen!

A littler back story....

A littler back story. Hi, my name is Philippe, and I am an addict. I love writing instruments. My entire life revolves around creativity and pen and ink. I enjoy a clean, fine line and expect my mind block to be the reason I have to put down a pen, not the pen itself. The Pilot Metropolitan fountain pen is a great example of a pen that will go as long as you can create. It is a good weight and offers a smooth controlled ink flow. I accidentally ordered the purple with leopard accent instead of the basic black, but I love it anyway. In fact, I am here to acquire the black and the chrome versions. I have only used Waterman Nostalgia Serenity Blue in it, so I cannot speak to other inks.

Love this! It is my first fountain pen. It writes beautifully. It is very easy to use and works well with the converter. My 6 year-old daughter borrows it regularly to practice her handwriting. I would recommend it to anyone just starting to learn to use a fountain pen. It sits well in the hand and has a nice weight.

I was looking for a fountain pen for everyday use. I love a fine tip pen and it this pen is GREAT. It feels great to write with and it is smooth. I have had other people use it and they comment, what a nice pen. I would recommend this pen to anyone. In fact I am considering purchasing a second one.

Writes very well. This is the first non-disposable fountain pen I've ever owned -- bought it after I loved the pilot disposables. It is easy to refill and writes very smoothly. I love it! The fine nib is excellent - I can read my writing very clearly. My favorite pen by a long shot.

Great pen, great price. The body feels like it has a matte finish, in contrast to the smooth pearliness of the white tiger one. The fine nib is perfect, not as wet as the medium, but still providing a good depth of color with various inks. It's a solid workhorse pen that is built well and just works.

Very nice writer with the included black ink cartridge. The Violet color is very dark, more of an eggplant. My only knock is that it does not post well -- many times the cap has fallen off and now the finish is chipped on the cap. If you jam it on hard it will stay.

I use this pen daily with other pens in rotation with various colors. It starts up every time and writes with a light touch.
