Pilot Metropolitan Fountain Pen - Retro Pop Turquoise, Fine is rated 4.8421 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent value This is really a great little pen. For the price tag, it is a must-have; great to put in a purse or backpack without worrying about damaging or losing a more expensive pen. Comfortable to hold, writes nicely, extra fine for those of us who love our fine nibs, comes with the basics needed to get ink from a bottle, and the color and style are simply beautiful. I used this initially with Noodler's Blue Ghost ink for a special purpose project and it laid down a wonderful very readable line with no feathering; I liked this Metropolitan so much that I will be ordering the other colors just so I am never without a fountain pen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fountain Pen! I've loved this pen from the moment ink touched paper - in my case, my Leuchtturm1917 bullet journal - and after a week and a half of writing non-stop I need to get some refills for it!! I chose the fine point and it writes very smoothly. My husband tried it and now he wants one, too! I just love the matte finish and I'm a huge sucked for the color, too. I've tried writing with fountain pens before and the nib would be scratchy to write with and dry out, so you have to try dampening the nib and getting ink everywhere. This pen started writing just fine at each attempt. A perfect fit for me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Now THIS is FINE!! I have a couple of Metropolitans. But I wanted a fine and I wanted the new turquoise. The color is beautiful. It's still hard to believe this is a $15 pen! It's comfortable to hold, not too heavy, good sized section to grip. The nib on this writes beautifully, with a touch of feedback, as I would expect from a super fine nib. And this is not your average fine nib. This is EXTRA fine! This is perfect on cheap paper that really absorbs the ink. I don't end up with illegible notes. I am using it with the Pilot Purple cartridges, and the flow is excellent. Great pen and really a nice color!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great pen! I have wanted to get a fountain pen for years and this pen has not disappointed me. It's well-balanced and makes writing truly effortless. I have been surprised at how long I am able to write with it without my hand tiring. It also has a delightful "scratch" sound as I write. (I'm not sure why I love that sound so much, but I do.) I have purchased these pens for my daughters as well and they love them, too. One daughter does all her schoolwork with it and then bought one for her best friend for Christmas! A great pen at a very reasonable price. Thanks, Goulet!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Starter Pen I tried 3 of the highly suggested starter pens (Lamy Safari, Platinum Preppy, and this), and this was my favorite. Got the fine nib, and it glides like butter. The converter holds a surprising amount of ink, and the pen holds up to a lot of abuse. The ONLY thing I could comment on that isn't glowing is that it takes a little bit of emphasis to get this pen to post solidly, but I'm okay with that. A+, 5 stars, will be picking up a medium nib of this model with my next order, and I'm picking up a couple to give to friends as presents.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pen at a great price I bought this pen based on the recommendations of friends, and have to say, I am so glad I did. I have had Lamy Safaris and AL-Stars for years, but this is a wonderful pen at a price that I cannot argue with. I forgot the Japanese pens tend to be a smaller nib than US/European pens, so at first I was a bit startled at the very fine point. But I have been very pleased with the performance of the pen, so much so, that I have bought another with a Medium nib. Love this pen!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extra fine It has a finer nib than my previous fine pilot pen, excellent for writing kanji for its complicated structures and a sharp finish!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pen This is my second Pilot Metropolitan, the other one with medium nib. This one, as well my other Pilot pens, did not disappoint me, as it works just as well as the others and the quality-to-price ratio is unbeatable. The nib feels very soft and wet and I have it loaded with Pelikan Edelstein Aquamarine.
