I just tried this pen...
Verified Purchase
I just tried this pen (thank you JetPens for fast shipping :D) and I have to agree with other reviewers on the smoothness of the nib in this pen. It writes as well as all fountain pens should write.

I rate this one as better than a lot of other pens I have that cost considerably more than what this Metropolitan costs. The size of the pen is perfect for me. It is not weighty, so your hand should not tire quickly with it.

I don't know how Pilot can make such a remarkable pen at this price point, but I am glad that they do.

If you are pondering purchase, the other reviews of this pen are accurate. It's a must have...and for the price it makes for a great, everyday fountain pen.

This pen has the smoothest nib! One of the best writing pens I have used. Thanks again for such great service.

I haven't had a fountain...
Verified Purchase
I haven't had a fountain pen since the nib on my old one (a high school graduation gift from 1989 (!)) bent when a friend borrowed it and pressed too hard. I figured this would be a good re-entry level pen, going by the reviews. Wow - I may never use a ballpoint pen again. This requires hardly any pressure to write with and glides across even cheap looseleaf paper (although it does bleed through a bit, but this is the paper's fault, not the pen's). I'm using the cartridge it came with, but I also bought a converter and a bottle of Herbin's Lierre Sauvage ink to try later.

My God I cannot believe...
My God I cannot believe the pen you get for this price. The flow is silky smooth and the nib is just perfect. I usually prefer fine points but after using this pen it felt like I was writing on a cloud. Best Fountain Pen I have ever had the pleasure of using.

Do yourself a favor and get this pen now before it is sold out. I have already purchased a second after I noticed how many were sold out after 2 days.

This pen is easily compares to what I ave paid 50 even 75 dollars for - It blows them out of the water!

PROS:
Silky Smooth Flow
Always Writes even after sitting for 48 hours or more
Does not leak!
Tip does not catch on paper - even writes on tissue paper

CONS:
Your friends will try and snag it because this pen cannot be beat!
