As soon as I heard that Pilot had released their popular Metropolitan in a fine nib, I knew I’d have to have one (or two – ha) and as soon as Goulet Pens announced they had them, I ordered.
Here’s a super quick look at the writing differences. For pictures of the pens themselves, please have a look at my Instagram, particularly this picture to see the fancy new packaging.
So…how does it write? GREAT!
(Medium on top – fine under.)
I’m using Noodler’s Liberty’s Elysium ink in each of the pens. This is one of my favorite blue inks and it’s exclusively available at Goulet Pens. (I swear, I don’t work for them. I work at Brush Dance.)
Flow is great. No skipping or hard starts. No scratchiness. And the line is significantly thinner than the medium.
In short – I’m glad I got two of these great looking inexpensive pens that work really well.
OK…this or that? Pilot Metropolitan Fine Nib – or Pilot Metropolitan Medium Nib. What is your pleasure?
Oh…here’s a link to the full-size review sheet. (It’s big.)
So great to see it! Thanks for the review. Now we don't have to do that whole Frankenstein thing in taking a nib from this pen or that pen and put it in a Metro just to get a fine point.
