Pilot Metropolitan Collection Fountain Pen
The good nib is much more like a Western extra-fine. It really is razor-sharp but smooth. I loaded the pen with Noodler's Ellis Island blue-black also it typed really right out of the box. After some writing, I made the decision i needed a wetter movement and modification ended up being simple. The nib and feed tend to be friction-fit, they pulled down easily, and I utilized .001 and .002 metal shims to start the space between your tines a little. The nib and supply fit back invest the part smoothly, plus the ink flow ended up being ideal for me from then on small modification.
All Metropolitan water feature pens have the same black hold area that keeps the nib and feed. The nib and feed act like the nib and feed for the Pilot 78G, nevertheless Metropolitan's metal barrel and cap are much sturdier and sturdy. The cap continues on the barrel with a positive, firm-fitting, secure snap, and it also does not rotate around like to my more costly Lamy Studio. In addition, if one needs, the Metropolitan's cap can be firmly published regarding the barrel.
