This is a sub $20 pen that comes with a cartridge, converter and case. The pen has avery nice weight to it. It is balanced, and very pleasant to hold.The grip is just hard plastic that can be a little uncomfortable if you are writing for a while but it is nicely contoured.
The converter is a squeeze type, that holds a good amount of ink. Youtube reviews showed that the ink capacity is generous compared to other brands for the converter.
My only qualm is that if you beat up this pen, it gets scratched to reveal a gold undercoating.
I have the silver and black version. One Fine and one medium nib. The medium writes a thicker line than I like,,,around a 0.7 to 1.00 mm thickness. It causes bleed through on some average pinter papers I use to take notes. I am a fan of pilot G2 0.5mm or pilot precise V5 pens...and I would compare the fine nib to the pilot precise V5. The pilot G2 0.5 mm produces the thinnest line out of the pens mentioned.
Loving the pen so far and the fine nib is just right and does not cause bleed through. I purchased additional ink cartridges and I am contemplating inks as this is my daily writer.
I have carried this pen on my person for an entire month now, writing with it as often as I could throughout the day. I began with the black ink cartridge included in the handsome box the pen arrived in, and wrote voraciously -- perhaps often unnecessarily -- in order to use it up so I could fill the squeeze converter with my preferred Noodler's Blue. As a reporter and journalist, I earn my living writing, so you can imagine my amazement (and, eventually, consternation) at how long that single black cartridge lasted. Had I loved black ink, I'd have been in Heaven!
But yesterday, the cartridge finally ran dry and now the pen is full of my Noodler's Blue. This is Nirvana of a conscious kind. I don't know how else to describe what the blood running through my own veins feels like as blue line after blue line appears on my fine paper with this exceptional pen. Pardon my language (or don't) but this is equal to the thrill of blossoming romance and its culmination in making the beast with two backs! I am simply beyond thrilled and I have paid far more for fountain pens in the past.
I do also love my Lamy and Waterman pens. They are well-made and worth the cost. But compared with this pen, there are some little things that niggle at me concerning the quality of writing they produce.
From a collector's standpoint, yes, the other pens have great sentimental value as they are the best pens of their ages. But we have arrived at a new age -- and the Pilot Metropolitan Collection, I pragmatically insist -- is a destination to which all previous efforts have long aspired to reach.
I attribute this largely to technology and engineering. And to style and fashion.
This pen is uniquely balanced in heft, different to the other pens I adore that were crafted in decades past.
The writing is natural, with a perfectly suitable audible scratchiness on the right sort of paper, and my signature absolutely rocks while using this pen.
How can it be so inexpensive then, you may wonder.
Technology. Science. Art. These are how.
I bought the fine nib, and it writes perfectly! I use it for writing random notes.
The black color is very nice in hand, and the the pen itself feels solid.
It also come with a black ink cartridge and a converter.
I also bought the black and turquoise colored ones.
Overall, I am very happy with this purchase, and it is well worth the five stars rating!

I've had the pen for almost two months now, and enjoy using it with Noodler's Black to write almost every day.
- The pen feels solid but not heavy when held in the hand. I write with the pen cap un-posted.
- The metal body is simple and elegant in design. Classic.
- The cap snaps into place snugly - though it can fly off if the pen is dropped forcefully onto a hard surface.
- The nib is smooth and lays down a fine line roughly equal to 5mm lead (actual width varies with ink flow and paper absorbency). I occasionally write with the nib upside down for a extra-fine, dry line, though of course writing in that way is not ideal since the pen is not designed to do so.
The only reason for 4 stars? Unfortunately, after several bad drops, the pen's plastic grip developed a hairline crack. The crack might be tiny and barely visible, but it leaked ink onto my fingers. Eventually, I removed the nib/feed assembly and was able to seal the crack with superglue. It is not an ideal solution, but it works.
Overall, this is a solid fountain pen. There's a reason this pen is popular; $15 only makes it a no-brainer. I would definitely recommend and buy again.
