Pilot Metropolitan MR1 Fountain Pen - Gold
The Pilot Metropolitan is a great fountain pen for beginning and experienced fountain pen users alike. Made by Pilot Japan, the quality and workmanship of this pen is exceptional.
▶ A metal barrel construction, which is nice and unusual for a pen at this price point
▶ Smooth steel nib that works great for beginners
▶ Inexpensive and of good quality
▶ Works with Pilot cartridges, CON-20 pump converter and CON-40 piston converter
The pen comes with a black ink cartridge and a pump converter to start you off.
The CON-40 converter is optional and can be purchased separately.
Writes finer compared to European nibs since it is Japanese nib size.
This is my go-to daily-use fountain pen. Well made, sturdy, nice grip, not expensive. I like the medium tip; the fine is a little scratchy for me. The only addition I have is a Pilot CON-40 Fountain Pen Twist Converter as I don't like the "squeegy" one that comes with the pen.
