THIS OR THAT? Pilot Metropolitan Fine Nib Review

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. 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?'s a link to the full-size review sheet. (It's big.)

  1. 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.
