After the Safari, Why not be Metropolitan

All the disappointment with the Hero 359 is all but forgotten when compared to the Pilot Metropolitan, an equally inexpensive fountain pen  which I bought at Goulet Pens.

Although I bought it with reservations and hesitated to push buy in July, I now find it in my hand and on my person often.  It is smooth to the touch, easy in the hand, neither heavy nor light, and a respectable shape.

It has a satisfactory converter which in my opinion can be a make or break for a pen and is an essential in any c&c fountain pen.

It's single draw-back, the pen appears to only come with a medium nib.
