Pilot's MR Metropolitan collection punches above its weight. With a refined contoured barrel the pen fits nicely in the hand and is a joy to write with. The brass barrel and stainless accents makes for a pen that oozes contemporary style, at an affordable price.
These fountain pens come with a Medium Stainless Steel Nib, Ink Convertor for using bottled ink and one black Ink cartridge - all displayed in a gift box with clear lid.
Refills are available.
Using a fountain pen is a special experience that simply can’t be matched by regular pens.
You have two choices for holding the ink in your pen; Cartridge or Bottled Ink via the Ink converter.
Each Pilot Metropolitan pen comes with one Black ink cartridge and one squeeze style ink converter. To use the cartridge you must twist open the body of the pen, push the cartridge onto the prong of the feeder to pierce the cartridge and lock it in place. Then leave the pen nib down to allow the ink to flow through the pen for 30 minutes. Don’t be concerned if it takes a little while to begin writing. Cartridge Refills are available here Pilot Cartridges.
Your second option is to use Bottled Inkand the converter that comes with each pen. You attach this to the pen in the same way as an ink cartridge, then submerge the entire nib in the bottle of ink. As you squeeze the back end of the converter it will draw the ink inside via the nib. Then take a paper towel and dry the nib.
To clean your fountain pen we suggest using lukewarm (not hot) water to clear out the nib and feed until the water appears clear. You can do this by dipping the pen in the water, or if using a piston converter draw the water up inside and push backing out. Then touch dry with paper towel and add fresh ink. The pen may write a little watery at first, but this is normal.
