Five new designs of the Pilot Metropolitan are coming this fall, each with an 'animal' pattern accent. The black/silver/gold plain models will remain in the regular line, while the black/silver/gold dot and zig-zag patterns will eventually be retired. The Metropolitan is one of my all-time favorite pens for many reasons, but especially because it's such a high quality pen at an incredibly reasonable price ($15). It could easily sell for double what it does, and I think most of you who have one would agree.

These designs will be released sometime this fall, and I'll update with pics and a new video when I get them in my hands. They'll be available at my store (Gouletpens.com) for the same price as the existing colors at $15, with a box and converter. Part of the reason I wanted to blog about this is because I wanted to let you know about these new colors and the discontinuation of the dot and zig-zag, but really I just wanted to hear what you think of these new colors. Please let me know your thoughts in the comments!
