This is only my 2nd type of fountain pen but wow I am impressed. This is a wonderful pen even under heavy usage. I have been using Noodler's Blue Eel and Gruene Cactus Eel in both of my Metropolitans. So far I have written 46 pages of notes in the last 4 days with two of these pens (one green ink, one blue ink). I did have to dip the nibs in water once to clear them, that was probably because of the special lubricated Eel ink I guess? Otherwise they have been amazingly smooth and consistent compared to the Platinum Preppy pens I was using before. What's more amazing is that this pen did it on extremely cheap $1/notebook paper. The squeeze converter holds plenty of ink (even for me) and it works perfectly too. This pen sells for much more in Japan and Europe and I can see why. My only complaints are that the clip is too stiff and the cap doesn't easily post so it tends to fall off if you don't push it on there firmly. If those two things aren't a problem for you then this is definitely a pen you want to get.

Nice pen with good fit and finish.
The nib writes smoothly, but I have a couple of Sheaffer pens with fine nibs that are smoother with a little more character. But these cost significantly more.
The pen also has good weight due to the metal construction.
Overall, a good purchase.

This pen (and the entire Metropolitan line) from Pilot is an amazing value. I use this pen on a daily basis and without a doubt, this one is my favorite. It comes with the converter, and a cartridge. The converter doesn't hold much ink, about one week's worth, but that's enough for me as I like to change ink colors frequently. If you're on the fence, get off now and buy this pen now!

Fantastic EDC Pen

This is my everyday carry pen. It is always by my side ready to go. I use the Pilot cartridges and they are convenient and reliable. I look for excuses to write things so I can use this pen. Nice fit and finish, consistent, clean writer. Handles a wide range of paper like a champ. I can't say enough good things about this pen.

Just received this pen and I love it. Nice weight, writes well. A little finer than I would expect a medium to be, but it's just fine. I love that it comes with a converter for bottled ink; this is a great deal!

Very good pen writes smooth. This is my first fountain pen, already comes with a converter and one cartridge of ink. So get some bottled ink. Its cheaper then cartridges

5+ rating. Thoroughly enjoy my new Pilot Metropolitan. As the previous reviewer said, it writes amazingly well on cheap paper. I have no problems with it at all - started with the enclosed cartridge and thinking about dumping it so I can try some the converter with other inks. It's comfortable to use - looked a little wide but isn't when I hold it. I am sure another will be added to my collection soon.
