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.

I had heard great things about the value of this pen before I bought it. It was my first fountain pen and supposedly great for beginners. I was, however, extremely disappointed with my purchase. First off, the pen did not write very well. It often had trouble getting the ink flow started. My other complaint is the cheap plastic grip. Never once did I drop this pen or handle it with anything but care, but somehow after a month of light use a small crack appeared in the side of the grip. This was unnoticeable and not a problem until I realized that it steadily leaked ink onto my hand. My advice, even for beginners like me, is to invest the extra ten dollars and get a less cheap pen.

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!

I bought this back in, gosh... November 2013? It is now June 2014. It was my first fountain pen. I've bought more pens since then, but this one has a special place in my heart! It was a bit of a dry writer when I first got it, but that's nothing a bit of tine flossing couldn't fix. Now it's a relatively wet writer and I love it! I also did some work on smoothing the nib, and I love it even more. I pair it with Noodler's Bulletproof Black for all my general writing needs, and there isn't much else to say aside from the fact that this pen is a pleasure to write with. Not to mention that I've dropped it on hard floors a few times... aside from some ink splattering, the pen survived because it's just so dang robust. Such a great value for what it is.

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.
