. The Pilot Metropolitan is an exemplary fountain pen that garners style, comfort and a smooth nib for a very inexpensive price. The pen features a steel nib, ranging from Japanese extra-fine to broad, that offers little flex. With a durable full-metal body, the Metropolitan maintains a sleek, yet durable design. Note that the pen only accepts the CON-20 and CON-50 converters, as the CON-70 is too long to fit within the barrel of the pen. The 'Metro' weights around 26 g overall and around 19 g uncapped. When writing, the pen posts at 153 mm and measures 144 mm when uncapped.
Overall Score: 8.0/10
