Pilot Metropolitan . . .

Pilot Metro

Another of my fountain pens: The Pilot Metropolitan (a modern Japanese manufactured pen), black sleek, smooth-shaped pen great for everyday use. This pen features a stylish matte finish with a glossy middle band. The brass cap and barrel give the pen a comfortable weight and balance. Combined with its smooth-writing Extra Fine stainless steel nib, this makes the Metropolitan a pen that is well-loved by fountain pen novices and expert users alike. The pen uses an ink cartridge or an aerometric (squeeze) converter, I have opted to use a Pilot Con-50 converter which has a greater ink capacity. Currently, it is not inked, I prefer filling with Waterman Brown fountain pen ink, which makes for a great letter writer and complements my cream Original Crown Mill 100% Cotton stationary. (Pilot Worldwide distributes the same fountain pen in the UK market under the name: Pilot “MR” Fountain Pen)
