Pilot MR Metropolitan Fountain Pens

The Pilot Metropolitan is seriously classy. Its brass body is beautifully curved, with a cigar-like shape. It has an overall matte finish and a glossy or patterned band just below the cap. The grip section is black plastic. The snap-on cap features a simple metal clip and can be posted on the back of the pen. Overall, it is a refined-looking pen that seems at least twice as expensive as it is. This smooth-writing pen quickly became the go-to beginner fountain pen when it came out, but also won over fountain pen enthusiasts with its smooth writing action, classic looks, and low price.
