So I was randomly online just ‘window shopping’ when I came across a Grouphunt for the Pilot Metropolitan MR3s and I thought…why not? haha
So my understanding is that the Metropolitan and the Cocoons are essentially the same thing (just different branding for Japan and the rest of the world) with some very small aesthetic differences so I probably wont be doing an unboxing video for this. Instead I’ll just put up some of the pictures of it.
I got the full set of 6 pens – 3 with Fine nibs and 3 with Medium nibs. I’m at that stage where I like how the inkflow is better with a medium nib but my handwriting is too small for it so a Fine suits my writing better.
In any case, my first impressions of the MR3 design is that it’s simple with a little pop to it because of the center band design. Coupled with it’s really affordable price, it makes a good casual pen to use on a day to day. Each one comes with a single ink cartridge (mine all came with a single black cartridge).
Will try to do a pen review proper once I get better acquainted with pen terms and stuff better.
Ok. Here are pictures
