This was my first ever fountain pen (well, except for a cheap one from a drugstore 15 years ago). This pen is, as some have said, an excellent starter pen, at least for me. Even though it is only $15 it feels so fancy and well-made. I couldn't be happier. I really have nothing to compare it with (there is NO comparison between this and a drugstore pen), but if you are new to fountain pens and don't want a large investment, this is definitely a good choice. I got the turquoise Retro Pop and it is so pretty. I just love it.

Good value for the money. The Pilot Metropolitan is well balanced and writes well. Would have preferred a better converter, but since most pens don't ship with a converter, can't complain.

I've had this color Metropolitan on my wish list for a while now and with Pen Chalet's Labor day coupon it was time to pull the trigger. These are great pens! Nice solid weight. Smooth writing nibs And the colors! In case you haven't seen any of my pen reviews out there on the internet, I collect fountain pens and I carry/use the color of the pen to coordinate or match whatever color shirt I'm wearing that day. Sound a little OCD? Resistance is futile. Get one in each color!

Actually I won this pen from a Pen Chalet giveaway, which is good, as honestly I may not of bought one otherwise. But in fact it's a great writing and balanced pen right out of the box and was pleasantly surprised. There are many expensive pens one can buy, but for performance weighted against value, this pen lived up to the hype that's it's a great everyday fountain pen for a really great price, and has professional appearance in a business setting. Highly recommend it, as well as highly recommend Pen Chalet, as although this was a freebie, have several purchases from them in the past, one even required an exchange, and their service is always prompt and spectacular.

I now own 2 of the MR Metropolitan -- one gold and one turquoise (Fine point). They work well for me in functionality and comfort of handling. They are also so affordable. Customer service in all my interactions with Pen Chalet has been exceptional.

FAQs about the Pilot MR Metropolitan

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:
It is the size of the converter as well as how they fill with ink. Both with fit the Pilot Metropolitan fountain pen. The Con-20 is a squeeze type converter and the Con-50 is a piston that is controlled with a twist knob on the end. It comes with the Con-20 but if you want a spare converter I would recommend the Con-50.

What converters can fit Pilot MR Metropolitan Fountain Pen? 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!
