Customer Reviews

MR Metropolitan
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.

This is, without a doubt, the finest point fountain pen nib I have ever used. Writes very well. Only drawback is due to retractable point design - the converter is on the smaller side.

It's a nice pen for the price, it looks good, and writes well. I use it for "tight" places where not much room is available for annotation...but my favorite nib is a stub...which this isn't available in. I did NOT like the bladder type of converter that comes with Pilot; such a small capacity that you'd be better off using an expended and cleaned Pilot cartridge filled with your favorite bottled ink.

Custom 823 Collection
I recently purchased a Pilot Custom 823 with a fine nib. I'm very pleased with Pen Chalet's assistance, pricing, and delivery. The Pen arrived promptly and in perfect condition, and I'm very happy with it. Using the Parker Blue ink that came with the pen, it writes buttery smooth for this old lefty! I highly recommend the Pilot Custom 823 and Pen Chalet!

The pen barrow is slippery, so you have to hold it firm. The pen writes smooth with a little graphite #2 pencil feedback. The line width is extra fine for a medium nib. For the price of $25 a little more than the Pilot Metropolitan. It is acceptable since it looks a little classier. Just wish the pen wasn't that slippery when you picked it up

MR Metropolitan
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.

Falcon Collection
LOVE my BRIGHT RED, strong beautiful pen. Medium (size) flex nib, my first flex, and it works great. Note: You veterans of the flex know it takes some learning before you get it exactly right. Once the finer muscles of the headbone, eyebone, and handbone get to workin, my-oh-my, you can have some fun. Personally, I've had to train my hand to PUSH harder with this one, versus my other fountain and calligraphy pens, and the reward is a suble variance in the writing that can make people think you're more interesting than you really are.

Ageless Future Collection
This is a wonderfully-balanced, novel retracting ballpoint (that whole larger point goes in with a twist, like the heal of a snapping-turtle.) GREAT pen, just don't leave it unguarded. Envy is an ugly thing to see. If I could give this one a "6" for functionality, I would. You will not be disappointed with this quality item. I'm a fountain-pen guy, but love this for signing carbons, etc.

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.

This is not my most expensive pen, but it is the one that offers the most amazing writing experience. The fill mechanism is reliable and easy as well. My only complaint is I wish Pilot offered some of the other colors in the US

This nib is a nice change from the fine points I have on my other vanishing point pens. It is definitely a thicker write yet the color is much more present in the ink and the smoothness is wonderful. It does tend to run a bit more on lesser grade paper however with journals and my Rhodia pads this nib works great.

Over time I bought The crimson variant with a fine nib and the green variant with a medium nib. Both are amazing with excellent flow and moderately wet (Yes!! even the fine nib variant is moderately wet), right out of the box. (I always wash and dry a new pen before filling it up). I wish they still gave a converter with the pen and not just the rubber pump filler. In the tropics rubber gets soft and "melts" with time and has to be replaced. Needless to say I got myself a converter. 2 cartridges are supplied. probably the best value for money spent on a pen. Writes better than pens 10 times its cost!

I went through a lot of issues trying to get the shipment outside the US and Ron was there all the while sorting out the problems and I'm grateful for his support (in spite of my many emails and calls to him with loads of probably impertinent questions and difficulties I was having).

Certainly recommend the product. Definitely recommend PenChalet.com for all related purchases

This review is for the Bronze version of the pen with a medium nib. I had ordered a Green version but liked the bronze too, and kept it. When I hold the pen to write with, the clip lies between the thumb and index finger and that is the only uncomfortable thing about this pen. That's my only grouse with it. The nib was buttery smooth and the feel of the pen in hand while writing is excellent. No dry starts and moderately wet.

Apparently this nib is not available on the Japanese market no more on the European market... Thanks to Pilot USA to give us the opportunity to buy it in the US market. Thanks to Pen Chalet for its nice price and to send quickly (6 days to arrive in France).
Now the little review. I've a Pilot 912 SU and i find this vanishing nib very close to the #10 : really excellent, so sweet, have the same nice flow and allows good line variation like its great sister Pilot #10. The results are very similar, it's pretty bluffing.
For me it is a very good purchase that I would recommend without hesitation to all those who would like to change with something a little more special than a Fine or a Medium (Excellent nibs too). Unfortunately we can not put an image to show some examples.
