Pilot Metropolitan, Black with Medium Nib. February 20, 2019
Reviewer: Phillip from LONDON, ONTARIO  
A good pen for price as it includes a converter and one cartridge, although I think it sells a little high here in Canada ($10 in USA and Japan).  I think it works as intended, but is not as smooth as it could be out of the box.  Ink flow is ok.  I thinks the Lamy and Kaweco starter pens are of greater value and perfromance, but I have no regrets with this purchase and I do use it occasionally.  Ordered on line, with some help from the excellent staff at Wonderpens.

Pilot Metropolitan - Stub Nib December 11, 2018
Reviewer: Tony from Massey Drive, NL  
I gave up cursive writing 30 years ago because I couldn't read my own writing. So I have been printing since then. I find the Pilot Metropolitan with stub nib to be an excellent pen for printing. It's a little slower to use but I find my letters to be clearer and that they look much better when I use the stub nib. It has become my favourite pen. However, I still use my Metropolitan medium nib pen to sign cheques to keep my signature consistent (unreadable).

Pilot Metropolitan - Medium Nib February 19, 2018
Reviewer: Melissa from BC  
I like the pen with the medium nib quite a bit (although I tend to prefer demonstrators) and I'm super happy that it comes with any type of converter because the cartridge that it came with blew during shipping - thankfully Wonder pens had placed all the cartridges in a little baggie, so the ink was contained, I may try ordering cartridges at a later date.  The company's care with packing was great, as a precaution they had also plastic wrapped the box of the glass bottle of ink that I ordered, which was totally fine in shipping.

Own 3 Metropolitans, Very Happy with All of Them September 3, 2017
Reviewer: Anne MacL from Toronto, ON, Canada  
I currently own 3 Metropolitans and I've been very happy with all of them. (NOT hype, my experience.) This model (the black one) I have in a stub nib. As a left handed underwriter, I was concerned that a stub nib would not work for me so I tried it out in the store (thank you!)  and it's amazing (I even like better than a flex nib.) I love my Metropolitans (fine turquoise, gold medium and black stub). The nibs are finer than European nibs (the fine is like other companies' extra fine). I like the metal body and the nibs write very well. (Personally as a leftie, I dislike the grip on the Lamy Safari so it was not the pen for me).  I also appreciate that they include a converter so you don't have to purchase it although I wish it was a piston converter instead of the squeeze converter. (You can purchase a Pilot Con 40 separately for this pen.)  Recommend.

Good August 11, 2017
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Gander , NL Canada  
I actually didn't order this pen from here, I ordered it from amazon.ca (it's actually cheaper here) I have the fine nib and I can say that it is the most fine line I have on a fountain pen and I love it.
