#1 Fountain Pen On Amazon

09/12/2016

Clicking around Amazon can be dangerous. They make it far too easy to find things I never new I wanted much less needed. Today while price shopping ink, Amazon offered to share with me the name of their #1 fountain pen.

Can you guess which one it is?

Hints:

  • It is a black pen. That’s as expected.
  • It has a fine nib. That’s the size most Western pen users start with even if they find other sizes to be more interesting as they get accustomed to using fountain pens.
  • The maker is Asian which was a surprise. But maybe not.
  • Fit and finish are excellent for an entry-level pen.
  • It comes in a variety of colors.

That’s a lot of hints. What is your guess? Scroll down for the answer.

The winner is the Pilot Metropolitan! Who knew it was that popular? Admittedly, mine is getting a ton of use and I would like a second one for ink testing. But #1? Kudos to Pilot for making such a terrific little pen.
