Pilot's Metropolitan pen is a sleek smooth-shaped pen great for everyday use. The body features a stylish matte finish over a brass barrel with chrome accents. A quietly sophisticated pattern of zigzags 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 box, one black ink cartridge, and an aerometric converter (squeeze converter).

I mainly purchased this pen for my J. Herbin Gris Nuage (cloud gray) bottle of ink, others have claimed that a medium nib and this particular ink look fantastic and they weren't kidding. The pen itself is gorgeous, like the previous reviewer said, the pictures don't quite do it justice. It has a sleek modern design and the zigzag pattern adds an element of elegance for an overall lovely look. Even the packaging it came in is fantastic, much sturdier than my Lamy Safari paper box. Back to the pen, it's a little on the heavy side, which may be a problem for long extended writing sessions. The nib is smooth and consistent, I've had no problems with skipping or feathering. The converter it comes with holds a good deal of ink and is rather easy to use.

Overall, this is a brilliant fountain, especially for the price considering it also comes with it's own converter. I would highly recommend this fountain pen to both beginners and veterans alike.

After watching reviews from Brian Goulet's YouTube channel, TheInkNouveau, and Stephen Brown's channel, sbrebrown, I decided to purchase the Pilot Metropolitan as my very first fountain pen. I ordered the black zig zag design along with a 50ml bottle of Lamy black ink, and I am astonished by how gorgeous this pen is in person. The product photos are nice, but they do not do justice to the true physical beauty of this pen. The Pilot Metropolitan is sleek, classy and extremely well-designed for an economy-class pen, and it writes more smoothly than any ball-point or dip pen instrument that I have ever used. I am extremely impressed by this pen, and it is perfect for anyone looking to purchase their first fountain pen!

Excellent pen, it was the first fountain pen I've bought and I'm very impressed with the quality. It has a very stable and controlled flow of ink which makes it very easy to write constantly with.

This fountain pen is definitely a must have for both beginners and enthusiasts alike!
I was not a beginner to fountain pens as I spent most of my childhood using them. I decided to reenter the world of fountain pens by purchasing a Metropolitan several months ago, along with a bottle of Lamy black ink. I must say that I was pleasantly surprised. This pens writes great right out of the box and I honestly couldn't stop writing once I start. Since then, I've bought several pens (some Chinese ones, several Platinum Preppys and a Lamy Safari), but still this pen is my favorite. I love the solid feel of it in my hand (can't say the same about the flimsy feel of a Preppy), the smooth line it puts down on any paper and the sleek, attractive design. It's a shame that there is only medium nib (it's a little too thick for me) but I wouldn't trade it for the world. What's more, it already came with a converter attached so I don't have to spend extra for one.
If you are new to fountain pen and are debating between this pen and the Lamy Safari (like I was) or other inexpensive pen, I would wholeheartedly recommend this pen for you. Trust me, you will not regret it.

I really liked this pen, it writes very smooth, smoother than my dad's more expensive Lamy. It worked great with the disposable ink cartridge that comes in the box.

The converter on the pen comes detached just about every time I take it out to use it at school. It makes a big mess and gets ink everywhere at a very inconvenient time. I assume Pilot wanted to make a nice pen for a low price but they had to save money on the converter and where the converter attaches to the pen. I don't recommend buying this pen, maybe mine was a fluke, but I wouldn't want to take the chance in getting a pen like this one. My pen is practically worthless and I am going to try to return it.
