Pilot's Metropolitan pen is a sleek, smooth-shaped pen great for everyday use. The stylish body features a matte, metallic violet finish over a brass barrel with chrome accents. A classy yet undeniably wild leopard print pattern 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).

THE GOOD:
Once again, the Metropolitan is an unbelievably good pen for such a low price. The metal body is sturdier and nicer-looking than similarly-priced, or even slightly more expensive (e.g. the ever-favoured Lamy Safari), pens. The nib that comes with it writes well, and isn't scratchy. It's not even particularly wet, for a medium nib, giving consistent and even flow. This pen is classic-looking, even with the violet and leopard print body, and manages to be simultaneously classy and exciting. Some might have a problem with balance with the cap posted, but that has not been an issue for me.

THE BAD:
My ONE complaint about this pen is the nib size. Using the cartridge that comes with it may cause smudging for lefties like myself. However, using a faster-drying ink (I use Diamine's Graphite Black) solves this problem easily.

OVERALL:
Stop hesitating. Buy this pen.

Its a bit heavy for my smaller hands, but I can't help using it all the time! I just end up taking off the cap. I set it aside and write. Without the cap, the pen is plenty light for me. It writes so smooth straight out of the box. I used it with the black ink cartridge it came with, then I filled it out with a different ink, pilot yamabudo. And it still works great. I got the white version of the metropolitan too. I have yet tried it out, but it's probably just as wonderful. I glad I got both colors. And I been so happy with the way it writes that I've been telling my friends about it. Oh, it does write quite thickly for a M nib, but it's still thinner than a Lamy M nib.
