I like the Pilot Metropolitan, it writes smoothly. I have no problem using it.
Thanks for the advice, maybe next time I'll visit those places
The blue black ink works perfect for me, I really like the color. I use with with my Ero pen
Yes you're right, I bought the Pilot black ink from the same seller. I use it with the Pilot Metropolitan and I think it's nice. Too bad they only have black ink.
how do you find the pilot ink? i just saw some post that tell this ink is underrated ink which is better than some ink like quink.
right now i use Pearl River ink for my black pen, this one is chinese ink with some herbal smell in it. haha
thank you for the reply! i just bought my first fountain pen which is jinhao 126 with fine nib from Lazada, I think it was pretty cheap and because i like the slim design, i just bought it right away. I already used this for almost a week but this pen gives lines that too big for me. I heard that the japanese fountain pens have smaller nib. So i would buy Pilot MR soon, hopefully this pen can handle my small handwriting
What kind of paper do you guys use? I use a normal textbook but you kind of see through the writing on the other side of the page. it makes me to think to write with fountain pen
i am in college i am using a binder textbook, at first i used the lined refill and yes some pen and some ink can give you bleed through the safest combination for this paper for me was Parker frontier f nib with pelikan 4001 royal blue. parker quink and parker penman will give you bleed through.
i recently use a plain kenko refill it work with charm even sometimes you get bleeding after the write the same line twice or more. i sketch a lot in this paper.
oh just to make you sure the seller in tokopedia only sell pilot mr in M, i still not use my pilot mr because it's in M nib, i think it's wide enough to my like of f writing. but, i am not so sure though.
if you want the small line then i suggest you to buy platinum preppy for 0.3 nib (f) it write slightly thinner than usual f nib, i am using this pen right now filled with waterman harmounious green. i flushed all the black ink in it's cartridge and filled with waterman since i already have a pen with black ink haha
pssst, the seller who sell the Pilot MR also have Pilot Kakuno with F and M nib, pilot kakuno and pilot mr share the same nib but i read some review that tell the kakuno nib is not that good as pilot mr. i was thinking to get the kakuno in f than change it to MR but now i am not so sure i want to do it or not. and also the seller still don't give the price, they don't know the price so they don't sell it right now.
