I just tried this pen (thank you JetPens for fast shipping :D) and I have to agree with other reviewers on the smoothness of the nib in this pen. It writes as well as all fountain pens should write.

I rate this one as better than a lot of other pens I have that cost considerably more than what this Metropolitan costs. The size of the pen is perfect for me. It is not weighty, so your hand should not tire quickly with it.

I don't know how Pilot can make such a remarkable pen at this price point, but I am glad that they do.

If you are pondering purchase, the other reviews of this pen are accurate. It's a must have...and for the price it makes for a great, everyday fountain pen.

I use mechanical pencils frequently at my job and needed something sturdy. This pencil is sturdy. It is thin but has a nice, weighty feel to it.

Recommended.

Thus far, no problem using this product with a fountain pen. I have tried both a Sheaffer 444 and a Pilot Prera with these pads. The Prera seems to do better, but it is Japanese fine, so it is more like writing with a gel, etc. These pads will probably not like a medium or broad fountain pen nib. I was happy with the series packaging and the set.

Definitely not Clairfontaine but I like them.

Just came in the mail...thank you, Jet Pens!

One word...PENGASM!

This pen is classy. Has the lines and appearance of a pen costing much more. Reminds me of a Pelikan.

When capping, it seems be tight enough (air wise) that it slows you down and the cap gently glides into place.

Buttery smooth nib. Japanese fine, so it puts down a very, very fine line for a fountain pen.

I'm in love with this one.

Great flow and an excellent ink choice if your workplace frowns on "expressive" inks of various colors. I like the shade and no feathering as the other reviewer stated. Would recommend.

I bought this to go along with the Sailor desk pen I got my brother for his birthday. I sneaked a peek before wrapping it up. It is very well packaged. After he opened it, I got to see it in action. The swivel is very well constructed. It's tight and will stay where you put it.

Overall, good value and well made. I would recommend.

I have to agree with the other reviewers who stated this didn't match the sample online. It is a sort of "olive drab", so I suppose the Army might like it. The ink itself performs well and I will use it but it is not the shade that I had hoped for.

Thanks all of you prior reviewers. Based on your input, I got this pen for my brother's birthday as he is a writer. He seems to be pleased with it.

I like the pen. Great...
I like the pen. Great writer in medium. The pocket clip is strong and helpful for me since I have a job that requires a good deal of physical activity and sometimes pens with poorly made clips fall out of my shirt pocket. Not so with this pen. It's pretty rugged and I like the ergonomic grip. It's not a decorative, pretty pen. Utilitarian, rugged and typical great German engineering....it's great to take along in the field.

The only problem I had with the pen was a lengthy time (compared with other fountain pens) in getting the pen settled in during it's first use. Lots of skipping, etc. Once it was past this problem, it has been flawless since.

First of all, fast shipping on this order. Pen arrived today with blue black ink.

This is an inexpensive pen but it is well constructed. Whether capping or posting, the cap has a nice, secure snap to it. Writing quality and flow is excellent. This pen writes a very fine line. The nib glides across paper. My only suggestion on this pen to the manufacturer would be to offer this pen with a medium and perhaps a broad nib.

Overall, this pen is much, much better than what one would expect at this price point. It is a quality product with an excellent nib. So, if you are on the fence on this one-buy it. You won't regret it.
