I love this pen to pieces....

Verified Purchase
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!

I really enjoyed writing with this pen, but after 4 months of very moderate use it fell apart - when uncapping it, instead of the cap coming of, the rear part came off (the part above the leopard pattern). It seems to have been attached with some glue, and I do not know what should I attach it back with. Wrote to Pilot and waiting to hear back from them.

I purchased this pen as a gift for my mom. The fine nib allows her to write on non fountain pen paper without any feathering. She loves the color, the ink (Noodler's purple), and the craftsmanship. She finds the fine nib to be very smooth, and she really enjoys using it to write her reports.
The Pilot Metropolitan is a good pen at this price point. I recommend this pen to anyone.

Great go to pen. My only issue is the box came so bent I had to break it to open it.

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.

Can't say enough good things about my first fountain pen! This was reccomended to me to start with, and I have thanked the person a million times. It has a really nice weight to your hand, and the violet color is nice and unique without being "HELLO YES LOOK AT ME I AM PURPLE!" Unique and understated. The nib works wonderfully, and is very forgiving for a novice like me.

One thing I will say as a word of caution is the converter it comes with is a little confusing, and there's no way to see how much ink you have left in the pen. I'd grab a different converter, which I'll do on my next order.

If you're contemplating it, grab a bottle of Diamine ink and this pen and go for it!

I may be biased--the Pilot Metro is the first fountain pen I bought. I do not have any plans to buy pens as an investment or ever spend over $50. I think this pen is perfect. I enjoy the weight of it and the length. It is a great looking pen--comes in a nice case with a refillable reservoir, although I have just been using the disposable. Personally I see no need for another fountain pen, unless maybe a finer nib size is needed. The price is so reasonable that I have bought several as gifts. I have purchased several other pens in similar to slightly higher price ranges. This one outshines them all, in my amateur opinion.

This is my first time in the world of fountain pens, and during my research I've heard some very good things about the metropolitan. I am absolutely NOT disappointed in this pen. It does everything I was hoping. Since I'm an artist, i much prefer using fine nibs. The pen doesn't have any scratchiness to it which is GREAT, the grip is comfortable and the pen itself is easy to use. Very fancy, all in all this was a great purchase. Thinking of buying more colors once jetpens restocks!
