Pilot Metropolitan Animal Prints

Pilot has just released some new designs of their Metropolitan pen, in animal prints! Okay, bear with me, I know your imagination can run wild with that, so just watch the video and you’ll see what I’m talking about. I really aimed to show the similarities and differences between these new colors and the existing ones.

    Not sure I'm a huge fan of the animal prints, but I am fond of the white Metropolitan. Wish there was a "classic" version like the Metro black. Just recently forgot my Metropolitan in a lecture hall and when I came back for it, it wasn't there. Going to have to weigh my options after all these new releases since having bought my class black (from Goulet I should add).

    Hi Brian,

    Will the original "plain" Metros will still be available along with the new animal print models? I think you said they would in a previous post.

    White Tiger and Leopard – one of each please! Just in case you have a giveaway 🙂

    As I understand, the plain ones will still be produced.

    The dots/zigzag patterns, however, will be discontinued. Its been a good year with them, but they will be missed.

  • Bummer! At least it's not an epic loss…that's one nice thing about these pens, if someone does steal it you're not destitute.

  • That's correct, the plain ones will still be offered, but the dot and zigzag are on the way out. We still have them for now, but no more are being made. I'm not sure how long they'll be around, probably a few months? It's hard to tell.

  • Haha, if we have any! Those are by far the most popular 😉

    Haha *bear* with me

    Glad it wasn't just me laughing!

    Pilot continues their Metropolitan line with a number of new looks, but will we ever get different nib sizes?! They obviously feel good about this line (and why shouldn't they), the next step is introducing some more nibs! Chance of any news on this, Brian Goulet?

    Hey Brian, I think the Pilot Metropolitan is a swell pen- I just wonder why you've never offered the Pilot Vortex? I've had a Vortex for almost 6 months with a Pilot CON-50 converter in it that works with Noodlers BayState Blue ink I ordered from you!
