Pilot MR Metropolitan 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!

The Metropolitan fountain pen is a quality product. It writes very smoothly and the ink flow is very consistent. I would recommend this pen to any prospective buyers.

A above average fountain pen. Occasionally, the pen skips while writing. Nevertheless, I am happy with the product.

Have not used a fountain pen an about 10 years. Selected the MR based on Pen Addict reviews. Good choice for a first pen. I was worried about how fine the line might be but it is excellent. Excellent quality pen without spending a fortune.

Right out of the gate the Metropolitan reminds me of the Pilot Knight over the years I have lost most of them. I keep 2 in my collection in the original packaging. The filling system is remarkably simple and bullet proof and identical to the Knight, one Metropolitan is in my tool box at work (Tool and Die maker) one on my desk near the computer and 2 assigned to my collection of 250 or so fountain pens from 1955 and up. For some reason I do not understand (yet) the ink flow is improved in the Metropolitan.
An interesting aside I dropped one on the floor capped, and it landed on the cap end the kinetic energy pulled the nib out easily reassembled and no harm done. that incident prompted me to experiment with the reassembly looking to alter the ink flow have been too busy repairing tooling to spend the time to really look at this.

This is my 4th Metropolitan and my second with a fine nib. I intend to swap out the nib with an EF nib from a Pilot Penmanship or a a Kakuno. Or maybe a Plumix nib. For now I'm using it as is. I love the dark purple color and the leopard print design.

The Metropolitan is an inexpensive pen that writes extremely well. The pen feels nicely balanced in my hand, with or without the cap. I bought the red retrop op because the color, simply stated, is fun.

A standard in the hobby, and for good reason. The Metropolitan is a workhorse of a pen, always ready. It is a metal body and cap, so if you don't like heavier pens this one might not be for you. Personally, I love it!

I got an italic nib. I like the pen (Red Retro pop), but I'm a bit surprised. Perhaps I read too much into the hype or maybe I'm not quite used to the italic nib, but the pen does not write a well as I thought. It did write without any problem as soon as I inserted the cartridge. I normally it clean it first, but for some reason I didn't. It a good pen and I would be a Metropolitan again, but I was expecting to be amazed like I was with my safari and some other pens.
