i have a well used matte black metal Rotring 600 that is now shiny black. A plastic pen may hold a matte look for longer, but for a metal barrel, don't expect it to stay dull.

Pilot Metropolitan
One of the nicest inexpensive pens available. Got mine at Staples (Use the pulldown on the right side of the page to select the Black Barrel).


I just got my Metropolitan in yesterday and I'd have to agree with this. I tacked one on to my last order and couldn't be happier that I did.

I was going to recommend the Invincia Stylus based on the topic's title, but you're already there. The Monteverde styli (styluses? styli) work wonderfully, I've heard. I wish they'd come out with a smaller version.

Just ordered mine yesterday in the matte black, and cannot wait for It to get here.

Lucky you. :glare: I'm going to have to get a Monteverde Poquito instead, as I'm not a fan of larger pens. (Poquito means "little bit" in Spanish)

Well, I have one in the mail now. It will have to tide me over till I am able to spend a little more on something more expensive :P

Good to hear. I will most likely get one in a couple months or so!
I plug things in, I push buttons, and I pick things up and put them down in different places. And when I have a chance I write things down!

My favorite matte black pen is a Visconti Homo Sapiens. May be a bit bigger than you're after, but the smoothest writer I've ever tried!

Look at #360471779556 on Ebay. This a Japanese Wancher pen that comes in matt black. A dead ringer for a Lamy 2000 but a tiny bit smaller, a steel nib, black metal instead of Makrolon and a cartridge/converter pen. Still, a nice writing pen, great fit and finish and $50. I've bought a lot of pens from this dealer. He's very reliable.
