This pen writes beautifully. No scratchy dryness and a nice fine line. It comes with squeeze ink reservoir, so you can use bottle inks without an additional purchase. This is the second Pilot Metropolitan I've purchased and may not be the last because the finishes are great colors and the brushed metal finish feels good.

A couple of weeks ago I found a freebee ball-point pen in the parking lot of the local public library. It was better than any pen I used in the 50s or early 60s. But I have moved on! I'm into fountain pens now! Though the free pen in the parking lot was enticing, I'll have or say that the Pilot Metropolitan is a much better value. It's made of brass, has some heft to it, and uses real ink! And you have a variety of options for nib width. Oh. yes! That's something else not available with the parking lot pens. Andthe Metro allows one to get into color matching. The metro is a great foundation for a burgeoning pen collection.

I can't say more than what many reviewers have said all over the web. These are good pens at a good price. I like to collect them. I learned how sturdy the body was when I accidentally washed a previous one in a top loading washing machine. Barely any scratches on the body but bent nib. Great pens. Great nibs.

It's a smooth writer and hasn't skipped at all. It's simple and straight forward, so what else do you want from a $15 pen? Per the reviews...both this Metropolitan and the Pilot Knight I purchased are both quality pens that are inexpensive and write smoothly...with a converter option provided in the price. True to review though, the nib does appear to write one size down from the western (EU and USA) pen manufacturers. These mediums look and feel like find nibs.

I love the Pilot Metropolitan with the stub nib. I use it daily. Inexpensive, but a work-horse of a pen!

These pens are really well-made for the price. This was my first stub nib, and I love it! It's narrow enough that I can write normally with it but wide enough that there is plenty of variation in line width.

FAQs about the Pilot MR Metropolitan

Q:
What is the difference between the Metro Retro line and the MR? Do they use the same ink cartridges?
Asked on Sep 27 2017 by Kathryn
A:
All of the Pilot Metropolitan pens are the same design with just different color schemes. The Retro line is just newer and more colorful. They both use the same Pilot IC-50 or IC-100 ink cartridges.
Q:
What converter can fit Pilot Metropolitan. I read that Con-50 doesn't fit although it should do so.
Asked on Mar 7 2017 by Ramona
A:
The Pilot Metropolitan Fountain Pen comes with a Pilot CON-20 converter. You also use the Pilot CON-50 as well. The CON-20 is a squeeze type converter while the CON-50 is a piston style and easier to use.
Q:
What is the volume difference between the Con 20 and Con 50?
Asked on Dec 4 2016 by David
A:
Sorry, I missed the question about the ink. The pen only accepts the IC-50 or IC-100 cartridges but if you want bottled inks any we carry will work just fine.

Q:
Is this the international version that can use any international size cartridge, or the version that can only use the CON-20/50?

Pilot MR Metropolitan Video



Video Script

This is the Pilot Metropolitan fountain pen. I comes in a black cardboard box with the Pilot logo embossed in silver in top. The cardboard box is simply an outer shell. Inside we have a faux leather box with a hinge top to it. Inside of the box on the inside of the lid is the Pilot logo embossed again in silver.

Included with the pen is an additional ink cartridge.

This is the silver version of the Pilot Metropolitan. It is a brushed silver and has a shiny band running through the center section of the pen. There is also a small chrome band running between the cap and the barrel of the pen.

On the backside of the cap we have Pilot Japan. It has a chrome clip. On the one side of the chrome clip is engraved Japan and on the other side is engraved Pilot. The cap on this pen simply snaps off and is easily posted for writing. It is a nice size pen in my hand. It has a chrome band running around right between the nib section and the barrel of the pen and a black nib section of the pen.

The nib on this pen is a stainless steel nib. It has the Pilot logo engraved on it as well as some other etchings.

To replace the cartridge or the converter on this pen we simply unscrew the nib section from the barrel. Included with the pen is a squeeze type converter if you would rather use bottled inks. You simply put the nib in the bottle of ink and you can squeeze the converter to draw the ink into it. It has a spring piece of metal around a rubber chamber. That can be used to draw the ink into it. Instead of a converter if you would rather use a cartridge there is one included or you can use a different color cartridge you can that as well.

This particular fountain pen also comes in a couple different colors. We have a gold version of the pen and we also have a black version of the pen. Each of the pens are a duller or matte finish on the barrel and the cap with a shinier band running around the center of the barrel.

These are some inexpensive but great quality fountain pens. Pilot is a great company. It is a Japanese product. Get yours today at PenChalet.com!
