THE GOOD: Once again,...
February 12, 2014

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.

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.

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.

I love this pen! It writes so smooth, I can't believe its not one of my more expensive fountain pens! I have the fine point and it is my preference. I plan to get more in other colors.
