I love this pen to pieces....

I love this pen to pieces. It looks great, has a good weight, and the fine nib writes smoothly (line thickness similar to an 0.4mm roller ball) with only a slight amount of scratching on a Field Notes memo book.

I previously had the medium nib "dot" version of this pen, and it wrote about an 0.7 mm equivalent line thickness and bled a bit on the Field Notes memo book. I recommend both versions.

I'm still using the ink cartridge it came with.

I adore this pen. I originally bought the medium, which is nice, but a fine nib is so much nicer. Good heft and writes very smoothly. This is now my everyday pen.

I have used several more expensive fountain pens in the past, and this one really impressed me both from the standpoint of its design and the quality of the writing experience. As soon as I started using this pen, I immediately wanted to order more of them. I would highly recommend this pen!

I really enjoyed writing with this pen, but after 4 months of very moderate use it fell apart - when uncapping it, instead of the cap coming of, the rear part came off (the part above the leopard pattern). It seems to have been attached with some glue, and I do not know what should I attach it back with. Wrote to Pilot and waiting to hear back from them.

I purchased this pen as a gift for my mom. The fine nib allows her to write on non fountain pen paper without any feathering. She loves the color, the ink (Noodler's purple), and the craftsmanship. She finds the fine nib to be very smooth, and she really enjoys using it to write her reports.
The Pilot Metropolitan is a good pen at this price point. I recommend this pen to anyone.
