This, along with a pilot...
April 12, 2015
This, along with a pilot metropolitan fine nib, was my first purchase here on
jet pens and I'd just like to say, not only am i extremely happy with my
purchase, but also the service. Maybe i have the area i live in or USPS to be
thankful for, but i was expecting my package to come in in a week, and believe
me when i say i was pleasantly suprised to have my package in TWO days. So i
just thought I'd throw that in, because Jet pens has just earned a new customer.
Now, to the pilot Metropolitan, the medium nib is actually rather fine, and as
you probably know there is no actual substantial "fine, medium, or broad"
because it honestly depends on where you buy it. So, this medium would be, about
an American fine. It's comfortable to use and flows nicely. It's teriffic for
beginners and the case is quite lovely. It makes it seem like a special and
expensive spy pen, or you know, fountain pen. Anyways, i love writing with it
and definitely would recommend it. It comes with a squeeze converter and black
ink cartridge as said. The cartridge is out of the body. The converter is
already installed, but fair warning when you take it out, it can require a bit
of pull. Or maybe that was just me. It does also come with a very small
Now most should already know this obviously, but just in case, the pilot
metropolitan does not have much, if any at all ,line variation. That's not quite
what it's for. So don't expect super thin, then super thick lines because that's
not happening. Otherwise, all around great pen certainly worth the buy.
