Silver Pilot Mr In Europe



TotalPerspectiveVortex

Recommended Posts

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

Theyre based in the USA but the pen came pretty quickly. Im not connected to them in any way

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

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:

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.
