5.0 (8 reviews)
Pilot's Metropolitan pen is a sleek, smooth-shaped pen great for everyday use. The stylish body features a matte, metallic taupe finish over a brass barrel with chrome accents. A classy yet undeniably wild pattern of lizard scales 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 black gift box, one black ink cartridge, and an aerometric converter (squeeze converter).

I absolutely love Pilot...
January 20, 2014
I absolutely love Pilot Metropolitans. You can call them an entry level pen all you want, this fountain pen is AWESOME and for fifteen bucks, frankly, a steal.

Taupe (like a bronze, or even gun-metal with gold mixed in) is a very elegant color and way less boring than black (don't get me wrong, I also like black, but everybody offers black).

But my favorite part is that I can just grab a Pilot Plumix or Pilot Penmenship, swap nibs and turn this into an italic or EF nib pen (and, if you take the Metro nib and put it back on the donor pen, you now have TWO pens).

A steal at twice the price.

I've got the medium and the fine. Both are amazing and the most reliable pens I own. The more I get into fountain pens, the more I appreciate what a great value this is.

As always, this is one of the finest pens at any price. The metal here is a good look, too.

I am thrilled with this purchase! I bought it in both the fine and medium nib, but I tend to gravitate towards the fine more often than not. I use it everyday for as many things as will allow me. I highly recommend these folks as the place to find all your fine writing instruments.

This pen took some work to love, but now that the nib has loosened up and I figured out to fill the converter with an eyedropper rather than using it as instructed (to draw ink through the pen nib), it writes well for a decent amount of time. I have not tried it with cartridges, but I assume it would be just as good! I only wish it took a universal cartridge.
