I read so many rave reviews of this pen, and decided to give it a try. I must say the Pilot Metropolitan definitely deserve the hype. The fine point nib is very smooth, and never has a problem with starting even after a couple days not being used. The weight of the pen feels just right in hand. If I had to nitpick I wish the squeeze converter be transparent so that I can tell how much ink is in there. The service of Penosaur was excellent. Their price was better than amazon.ca, and the delivery was on-time.
Great beginner fountain pen, very smooth to write
