Customer Reviews

Pilot sent a defective nib and refused to stand behind their product. Stay away.This is an excellent pen once you figure out how you are handling the ink. Buying ink cartridges is not economically viable since you will likely go through a cartridge every could days. The refillable bladder that is also included is functional, but you will need to fill up almost every page or two of writing, which is tedious and keeps you from being able to reliably trust that you can take your pen to a meeting. The solution is to buy a Pilot Fountain Pen Converter (CON-50) along with a bottle of ink like Noodler's Black Waterproof Fountain Pen Ink - Bulletproof,3 ounce.Edit: I have changed this from a 5 star review to a 1 star. I have experienced leaking from the nib 2 months after buying and after contacting Pilot they want me to pay for shipping to return the pen waiting (5-10 days) then they will mail out a new one (another 5 days). I told them I would pay half of the cost of the pen to ship it back. After asking, they refused to pay shipping, refused to do an advance replacement, and refused to simply send out a replacement nib. I have five Pilot fountain pens, and yet Pilot refuses to send me a replacement for a defective nib that is three months old. 1Very Nice!My first fountain pen since high school 50 years ago. It is wonderful and, for the money, I don't think you could beat it. I purchased a bronze finish pen with fine nib. The fine nib is perfect for me. I was a little worried it would be too fine but it's just right. I was tempted to buy the medium but I am glad I did not. I also purchased a pack of 12 ink cartridges figuring I would do some writing before I decided to go with bottle ink and the converter. I like the convenience of the cartridge. I just ran through my first cartridge and got 15 journal pages out of it. That is about 3,750 words in my hand and A4 journal so mileage may vary but I was pretty happy with that. Be sure to carry a few spare cartridges if you go this way. I think I will probably stick with the cartridges. One memory I have of high school was getting ink all over my clothes when I fouled up loading the pen from an ink bottle. 5Not Built to LastI purchased this pen in December pf 2018 - I really liked the way the pen wrote and it was easy to use. Sure, it leaked a little here and there, but nothing excessive. I do a lot of writing, so I was excited to finally find a fountain pen with which I can write regularly and use with ease. However, after four months (maybe a little less) of consistent (I wouldn't say excessive) use, the nib broke completely off. It's a shame and I'm unable to fix it. 1THE beginner fountain pen! (+ how to fix it if you're clumsy)PROS+ Amazing price+ Lovely construction with a great weight+ Writes very well+ Nibs are easily replaceable+ Lots of ways to fill the ink+ Clip is quite sturdyCONS- Prone to leaking into cap if carried around; if you post the cap, you'll probably end-up with ink on the top of your pen- The point where the cap meets pen isn't terribly comfortable, but you get used to itQUICK & DIRTY: This pen is so cheap, that you shouldn't even hesitate on the purchase: you won't be sorry! I love this pen so much that I bought 3 of them (1 as a gift, 2 for me). It's not without its flaws, but you'd be spending a lot more money to get a pen that can beat it!LONG & NERDY:Within the first hour of using this pen, I dropped it on the nib. Hooray. Rather than buying a new one, I found out that this pen is compatible with the Pilot Penmanship which is an extra fine (AKA even thinner nib than this Metropolitan's). I loved the result so much that I replaced the nib on the 2nd Metropolitan I purchased. Doing so is as simple as removing the plastic and metal section of the nib by gently squeezing and twisting it off (please, for the sake of your white dress shirt, be sure that there isn't any ink left in the pen), and switching out the metal nib while using the same plastic holder. -- Penmanship Fountain Pen with Ergo Grip FP50R NCEF 3 Pens Value SetThere are lots of ways to fill the pen with ink. The easiest and cleanest method is by purchasing replacement cartridges. The pen comes with one cartridge as well as a converter (AKA thing that you can use to manually refill the ink) inside the pen by default . More on that later. I recommend buying a few cartridges just to have at the ready in case you run out of ink while out. Note that refilling with this method takes a minute or two for the ink to be ready to use. Even if you go down the dip-ink method, it's handy having a few empty cartridges. More on that later as well. -- Pilot Namiki IC100 Fountain Pen Ink Cartridge, Black, 12 Cartridges per Pack (69100)The included converter is a convenient squeeze bladder where you dip the pen tip into ink, squeeze, let the bladder fill with ink (repeat until there aren't any bubbles), and wipe the tip with a paper towel. This is nice if you'll be leaving the pen at home, but not that practical if you're using the pen as an everyday carry since you can't see how much ink is left + it holds slightly less than the cartridge. I highly recommend the Pilot Iroshizuku inks! -- Pilot Iroshizuku Bottled Fountain Pen Ink, Syo-Ro, Dew on Pine Tree, Dark Turquoise (69206)You can also buy Pilot's CON-50 twist converter. I've avoided it so far because it holds even less ink than the bladder, though it's easy to see how much ink you have left. -- Pilot Fountain Pen Converter (CON-50)I was taking a class where I was basically writing nonstop from 8am - 5pm, and I'd almost go through an entire cartridge in a day (something I don't think I'll manage to do again for quite some time). The other lower-capacity methods weren't that appealing to me, so I came across a simple solution that's my go-to method now. I basically rinse out a depleted cartridge, remove the little, black seal if it's still there, and use a syringe to refill the cartridge with my favorite ink. Now I have the best of all worlds: a high-capacity cartridge, the ink I love, the ability to see how much I have left.At the end of the day, I needed a pen that could write dependably and beautifully. This pen does that. I've devoted a lot more time and research into this writing utensil than anyone really needs to, but here's my excuse (this is mostly addressed to my eye-rolling wife): I now have 2 pens that I use for pretty much every bit of writing I do. They write dependably, look VERY nice (even when compared to pens costing 10x as much), and make writing a pleasurable experience for me. I'm notorious for losing pens all the time. Now I don't. 5Smooth writer, great price, great look, many add-ons to be found that extend the functionality/ease-of-useThis has become my everyday pen. I swapped out the fine nib with an extra fine nib from a Pilot Fountain Pen with Ergo Grip, Extra Fine Nib, Clear Body (PFP50RNCEF) and it works great. Also added the Pilot Fountain Pen Converter (CON-50) which is great given it's larger capacity. I still go through ink quickly though, but it's become a simple task to quickly refill everything when I get home.The clean and simple aesthetic means it's nice enough to bring to any meeting or outing. Yet it's cheap enough that I'm not so worried about replacing it if Ilose it.The nib is the smoothest I've been able to find, especially at extra fine. I started with a Lamy Safari, but it was just so scratchy that it detracted from writing with it.My only problem is that fountain problems are so reliant on good paper. To truly get an extra fine line, you need to be using top quality paper. This just isn't a reality for me in my day-to-day routines, so I lose out on some precision. 5So Far So Good!I received this fountain pen last night. I purchased it because I own the pilot parallel pen and found that difficult to use for everyday drawing but I had a ton of the mixable colors ink cartridges I needed to use and they fit perfectly with this model. Although I've only sketched for about an hour or two with this pen last night I can say my first impression is that I like this pen! It has a nice weight to it. If you have smaller hands this will feel comfortable. The ink cartridges are a breeze to insert and use. It comes with a converter for use with bottle ink but i have not used it yet. The ink flowed instantly from the pen with no issues. It glided quite nicely across a 60lb sketchbook page. The pen cap can be snapped onto the bottom of the pen so you don't loose it. The nib is a nice fine size. I actually felt excited about drawing with this pen. I've used with water to create washes and used it with M Graham watercolor paint and was very pleased. If you're looking for an everyday fountain pen that's easy to assemble and use I'd pick this one. It also comes in a nice case and the box is nice too. 5Verr Nice!GREAT pen! Love the weight (not too heavy, but still some oomph), writes beautifully. The nib for this pen is thinner than the Lamy Safari fine nib, and I prefer this pen over the Lamy I own. Will purchase another one~[Update - 9/18/16] I have owned this for about a month now, and everything is great still. The ONLY (tiny) setback to this pen is that there are splotches of ink on the nib that you have to wipe down. It doesn't affect the writing, doesn't get on your fingers (unless you put the cap on the back of the pen and touch the back once the cap is closed again).[Update: 10/3/16] The ink splotches on the nib is getting on the inside of the cap and the ink is starting to get on everything. I'm taking out 2 stars because of this. If only the quality of Lamy + pen nib of Pilot made babies, it would be SO PERFECT. 3Excellent value and performancePilot makes an amazing, yet low cost, fountain pen. Of all the pens I have owned, from the expensive Mont Blanc, to the medium ranged Lamy, this little humble pilot pen is my go-to. The barrel feels substantial, without being heavy and fatiguing. The nib is a joy, thin to my tastes, with an almost impossible to miss sweet spot. With the right ink, there is almost no fatigue because the nib *glides* along the paper. In comparison to both Lamy and Mont Blanc, the Pilot nib somehow writes a thinner line. The grip isn't quite as comfortable as the Lamy I own, but far more comfortable than the MB. If you are a new convert to fountain pens, this one will spoil you. If you're an old veteran, you will greatly appreciate the performance in such a reasonably priced gem. 5Awesome Pen! REVISEDSo far I am in love with this pen. Cant believe it is priced so low. The feel is great. The cap is great. I cant speak to the ink issues yet as I have not run out yet. But so far I love this pen.Revision: I did love this pen at first but as you can see from the pictures it didnt last long. I still use it but the neb leaks into the cap and gets messy. It gets on your hands which nobody wants and I have to repeatedly clean it. I still use it bc I already purchased so much ink and don't want to risk buying another. 2Great writer at a super low priceProbably the best beginner/everyday carry fountain pen available. Terrific bargain. Pen has a nice, solid feel in the hand due to the brass construction, looks respectable, and has a smooth Pilot nib that puts down a fine, moderately wet line and has a bit of give to it (not enough to call it flex, but it gives a softer feel when writing than some of the hard German nibs so common in most other moderately priced fountain pens) and handles just about any ink you throw at it like a champ. If you like a super stiff nib or like a broad line, this is probably not the pen for you. But other than that, the only flaws I note are that the supplied converter doesn't hold much ink and the stepdown from the barrel to the section might be sharp and uncomfortable for those who like to hold the pen higher up when they write, although it's not a problem for me personally. Although I have many other pens, I still use this one regularly and routinely buy them as gifts for friends and family who get curious about fountain pens. 4
