A Pilot Metropolitan pen in its original box. This pen is an old stock item. It has never been used apart from me dipping the nib to get the writing sample below. It has a very nice black satin finish with a decorative band at the forward end of the barrel. The pen has a very nice rounded shape. The cap has a chrome plated pocket clip. The cap pulls off to reveal the very nice Pilot steel nib which is in a medium point. The pen will accept a standard International ink cartridge (there is one supplied in the box), or a standard International ink converter (not included). The original black metal box is also in excellent condition. The outer card slipcase is also still present and again it is in excellent condition.
I did just dip the tip of the nib to produce the writing sample. The nib is nice and smooth.
