Pilot Metropolitan Fountain Pen - Black Dots is rated 4.8272 out of 5 by 162.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy starter I bought this pen because I already had one with a Metropolitan with a fine nib and wanted something similar. I actually ended up liking the medium nib a bit better: the fine is a bit scratchy, but the medium writes smoothly. Also, I'm not a fan of the bladder converter (had some problems with leaking and capacity), so I used up the ink in the included cartridge and have just been refilling the cartridge with needle and syringe. Works beautifully! The pen has a nice feel (smooth, nicely weighty) which makes it look and feel like a much more expensive pen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE these pens! I have two of these pens, and I love them. I teach third grade, and I use them at school all the time. My students are very curious about my fountain pens, and I can let them borrow these without fear as they are inexpensive. They have been dropped multiple times and used by some kids, and they are no worse for the wear. I also like that they each come with a converter so I can use my choice of ink. The ink capacity is large enough to write a fair amount but is not so great that I get bored with the ink. If you are looking for an inexpensive and indestructible workhorse pen that writes well, then look no more! This is your pen!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing value A very impressive little pen, no doubt about it. I usually prime a new pen before using it (flushing it with water and dish soap or using JB's Perfect pen flush), but I decided to pop in a cart as I was pressed for time. Immediate start up, no adjustments were necessary. The nib is super smooth. The pen is very much like the Knight, length-wise, but it is lighter (which is a good thing), and more importantly, the section is longer, which makes it easier to hold. I was expecting a nice sturdy pen with a smooth nib, but this is better than I imagined! And it got to me in record time - great service, as usual.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For the long haul Neither Goulet Pens nor Pilot needs this review...the Metropolitan, with its substantial metal body, smooth nib that writes (predictably) on the finer side of medium, and understated design, will sell like crazy. And sell for $15. Yes. Really. I'm not ready to kick the Plaisirs or the Preludes to the curb, but the Metropolitan sure makes a great first impression. Simply, it's right sweet. And I suspect it will be for the long haul...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A nice and well balanced pen This fountain pen is a masterkey. The nib is not only interchangeable with Prera (F and M), Japanese FP (EF) and Plumix (which are offered in the European market with a wide range of italic nibs: EF, F, M, L and EL), but also the whole section of Metropolitan can be swapped with the Pilot 78G's (F, M and B golden nibs, this last one an smooth stub). The classic but modern cigar-shaped aluminium body is light and the cap fits perfectly. Who else can offer more for less? The only drawback is the motted nib, because I'm fonder of plain ones. To sum up, it's not as smooth as Prera's, but is a good choice for the money. If only it were available in colours and nibs of Japanese Cocoon! I don't lose hope.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HQ Gem by Pilot Pilot must be going broke selling this pen. It is made with quality that rivals that of much more expensive pens. A must have pen for enthusiasts, collectors, and first-timer buyers. The Goulet video review is dead on with its analysis of the amazing features this pen packs. The difference with all good pens, is the feel and grip of the pen in your hand and this baby is a Cadillac. It's got a balanced hefty weight and the superb quality for it to compete with the expensive bunch. The cap locks well and so far it does not damage the exterior of the pen. I'm not sure whether the exterior is painted or not but it's solid against any nicks and scratches that it could have taken from daily use in college.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible value This pen is an incredible value. It is solidly built, good looking, and writes wet and smoothly. The section looks glossy but somehow it is very grippy. Contrary to some reports I've read, mine posts quite securely. The nib is also nice looking, and exchangeable with other Pilot nibs from pens like the Prera, 78G, Plumix, etc. And it comes with Pilot's basic but effective squeeze converter. I like my Safaris, but I have to say, I think the Metropolitan has the Safari beat in most ways. It has a metal body, comes with a converter, and is less than half the price (if you buy a Lamy converter with a Safari)! The only advantages the Safari has are in color choices and a wider variety of nibs. (Lamy's customer service might also be a plus, but both pens should last a long time if not abused.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantstic Work Pen! As a student, I need a robust pen that can be relied on to not leak, break or fail me in constant day-to-day use. The Pilot Metropolitan performs remarkably well in all of those categories. Pros: -Works well right out of the box. -Ink flows smoothly -nib is butter smooth -Pen is solid Cons: -You can only get a medium nib. I would really like to have this pen with a fine or very fine nib on it. -the cap snaps instead of screws on. I don't like worrying about whether my pen will uncap itself in my pocket. All in all, I would heartily recommend this pen to anyone looking for a workhorse of a pen. And for $15, you really can't go wrong with the Pilot Metropolitan.
