One of my favorites!...
January 23, 2013
One of my favorites! The pen body is very well-balanced and has a pleasant matte finish with a wide ring of slightly shinier metal for decoration.

The clip is secure but not overly difficult to open like some pens. The cap posts snugly and the pen stays balanced whether posted or not.

The grip section is a glossy plastic (though not slippery) with a ridge to protect your fingers from sliding onto the nib.

The nib has no flex and is very smooth, and I love the way it feels on paper - no scratchiness whatsoever here.

The squeeze-type converter is an interesting gimmick, but after using it for a while I decided I prefer the normal piston converter better, since they give the ability to see ink levels and if they're completely clean or not, so I bought one that is compatible.

The price-point can't be beat for this level of quality. Highly recommended - this is definitely a strong competitor to the Lamy Safari in my opinion!

I love the weight of this metal pen in my hand. It comes with an ink cartridge and a squeeze converter! The cap clicks on nicely. The nib is rounded, to give the writing the look of a ballpoint pen. I am really pleased and this pen with all of its included accessories is well worth the price.

This pen writes so smoothly, it is unbelievable.

This M nib puts down a finer line than a Kaweco F nib.

Tip: It writes well with all the inks I tried, but it writes even better with Rohrer & Klingner Salix ink.

It is probably worth five times the price.

Pilot Metropolitans are the only pens I use except when a waterproof ink is required. I love them!
