I have carried this pen on my person for an entire month now, writing with it as often as I could throughout the day. I began with the black ink cartridge included in the handsome box the pen arrived in, and wrote voraciously -- perhaps often unnecessarily -- in order to use it up so I could fill the squeeze converter with my preferred Noodler's Blue. As a reporter and journalist, I earn my living writing, so you can imagine my amazement (and, eventually, consternation) at how long that single black cartridge lasted. Had I loved black ink, I'd have been in Heaven!
But yesterday, the cartridge finally ran dry and now the pen is full of my Noodler's Blue. This is Nirvana of a conscious kind. I don't know how else to describe what the blood running through my own veins feels like as blue line after blue line appears on my fine paper with this exceptional pen. Pardon my language (or don't) but this is equal to the thrill of blossoming romance and its culmination in making the beast with two backs! I am simply beyond thrilled and I have paid far more for fountain pens in the past.
I do also love my Lamy and Waterman pens. They are well-made and worth the cost. But compared with this pen, there are some little things that niggle at me concerning the quality of writing they produce.
From a collector's standpoint, yes, the other pens have great sentimental value as they are the best pens of their ages. But we have arrived at a new age -- and the Pilot Metropolitan Collection, I pragmatically insist -- is a destination to which all previous efforts have long aspired to reach.
I attribute this largely to technology and engineering. And to style and fashion.
This pen is uniquely balanced in heft, different to the other pens I adore that were crafted in decades past.
The writing is natural, with a perfectly suitable audible scratchiness on the right sort of paper, and my signature absolutely rocks while using this pen.
How can it be so inexpensive then, you may wonder.
Technology. Science. Art. These are how.
This is a sub $20 pen that comes with a cartridge, converter and case. The pen has avery nice weight to it. It is balanced, and very pleasant to hold.The grip is just hard plastic that can be a little uncomfortable if you are writing for a while but it is nicely contoured.
The converter is a squeeze type, that holds a good amount of ink. Youtube reviews showed that the ink capacity is generous compared to other brands for the converter.
My only qualm is that if you beat up this pen, it gets scratched to reveal a gold undercoating.
I have the silver and black version. One Fine and one medium nib. The medium writes a thicker line than I like,,,around a 0.7 to 1.00 mm thickness. It causes bleed through on some average pinter papers I use to take notes. I am a fan of pilot G2 0.5mm or pilot precise V5 pens...and I would compare the fine nib to the pilot precise V5. The pilot G2 0.5 mm produces the thinnest line out of the pens mentioned.
Loving the pen so far and the fine nib is just right and does not cause bleed through. I purchased additional ink cartridges and I am contemplating inks as this is my daily writer.
It is pretty and a fine price for a fountain pen. The pedigree of this pen is perfect as well, Pilot is known for providing a quality product. If this pen is highly recommended and it has all this going for it what could the problem be?
The ink flow is abysmal, I have cleaned the pen, swapped out nearly full cartridges. Tried a converter, even written with the nib upside down in order to get better flow. Nothing works.
I have finally conceded defeat and I am sticking it in a drawer. Maybe I just got a dud pen, but I am very frustrated.
I am posting two pictures the first was of when I first got the pen and it flowed beautifully, the second was after a month and it became a nightmare to write with.
