Hello!

 

I'm new to this forum and glad i found it. I was given a beautiful black Pilot Metropolitan a while back, but during a class it feel straight on the tip, bending it completely, and i have deduced from the internet that the most economical choice is just to buy a new Metropolitan. I'm not particulary fond of animal skin or retro pop designs, but those seem to be most readily available. My question is, where could i find a silver Pilot MR/Metropolitan (the one without animal skin or dots) in Europe? Does it even sell in Europe?

 

Thank you for your responses, happy holidays!

Hi,
Welcom to FPN!!

I haven’t seen any single-tone-no-pattern offered by European sellers... but would be curious to see other members’ feedback.

Did you consider buying any new MR and using only the section with the nib with the existing cap and barrel? All sections are black anyway and interchangeable.
Of course, if the cap and barrel of your existing one have not been twisted by the accident.

Welcome to the network.
I have bought from this seller on eBay before

A few days ago I visited my stationery store and saw they had the Metro in white, silver and gun metal finishes.

MR is the European offering, and only comes in either Retro or Pop.
Just buy one and use the section.

If you must have a Silver one, you might have to order online from outside Europe. Of course, you then have extra postage and maybe tax to pay. I have used Goulet Pens (USA) in the past, and have only good things to say about their speedy, international service. Postage was roughly the same price as the Pilot Metro pen, but I didn't incur any extra costs.

 

I much prefer the plain pens to the patterned ones, and have had to get them from the USA and Japan.

 

If cost is an issue, then go with the suggestion to purchase something locally, and swap over the section to your black one.

 

Happy Holidays, and Good luck.  :thumbup:
