This is a very elegant pen. The animal print doesn't look flashy; it's delicate and looks chic. The medium tip goes smoothly and leaves fine lines and it doesn't leak. Technically is a functional piece and aesthetically is perfect for carry on a lady bag or purse.

This is probably the 7th Pilot Metropolitan pen I've bought, most as gifts. Excellent pen at a tremendous value.

The Pilot Metropolitan Fountain Pen is a real find. At it's price point, it's one of the best value quality fountain pens on this site, and I highly recommend it. I am reviewing this color combo because clearly it's what I purchased, but my review is focused on its function rather than it's form. It's smooth, with minimal scratchiness and even when it's not in constant rotation, it doesn't necessitate ten minutes of re-flowing the ink into the point. Right now I'm using pink fountain pen ink also by Pilot (which is great), but I plan to use many brands of ink. Even though I have a converter already in my collection, I find the cartridges so easy that I really don't want the mess and work of a converter when I can purchase name brand ink of quality in diverse colors for the low price of $3.55 (USD), for a box of five cartridges. If I had to list some "cons" for this pen I would say the weight. It's a bit heavy, which I guess is rather common for a nice quality fountain pen. But it's a bit too heavy, and I tend to like leaving the cap aside when I write. I compare it to the Platinum Plaisir Fountain Pen (also purchased here about 18 months ago & Loooooove it) and think this Pilot is heavier, but a bit easier to write with, with less worries about ink flow. Overall the Pilot Metropolitan is easy to own, refill and use. It's a winner and for $14.50 USD it's a total bargain and should be in your collection. I will definitely be buying this one again at some point in a different color, and suggest you do the same! :)

This is a beautiful, classy pen that's super fun to write with. Incredibly smooth, never clogs, and feels nice and weighty without being cumbersome. Plus I get a lot of compliments on it when people notice me writing in public!

I absolutely love this fountain pen! Not only is it gorgeous with the pearly white body and the subtle tiger addition but it writes beautifully. The ink flow is smooth, the pen has a nice weight to it and it isn't so bulky that I can't take it with me in my purse. Now the only problem I have is deciding not to purchase another one in a different color!

Best $15 fountain pen ever manufactured. Writes as well as my $100 plus fountain pens. Flow is great. Nib makes smooth consistant lines. Write do not scratch. Great for newbies and an excellent everyday pen for all.

Awesome pen! I was so pleased with my earlier purchase of the silver zig zag version that I looked into the newest release of animal themed metropolitans, knowing that my chances of being disappointed were very low. I was correct! The body of this pen is a smooth and shiny pearlized finish with simple tiger markings near the nib, rather than the traditional matte finish which is a nice change. The included converter allowed me to use bottled ink right away. Best of all, the tip never clogs and ink does not appear to evaporate when capped. I am so pleased with this pen and am happy that this pen allowed me to enter and see the wonders of the fountain pen world.

I also purchased the black crocodile version for my brother and he loves it! The crocodile design is slightly raised and textured unlike this one. It is not very noticeable when in use, but is a very cool addition to the overall design.
