This kit is an excellent low-cost, high-quality package for a new user of fountain pens. The fine-nib Metropolitan is a sturdy, smooth writer that will be useful to anyone. Broader nibs can show off an ink's color, but my chicken-scratch handwriting is more legible with a fine point. This fine-nib Metropolitan was my first fountain pen a little over a year ago. Now I have more than a dozen fountain pens, but this Metropolitan happened to be the pen I reached for today when I wanted to do some serious writing. I got my mother and my daughter into fountain pens this year, and they both started with Metropolitans too.
The Pilot Namiki cartridges have smooth-flowing basic-black ink. The bundled cartridge converter will let you use other colors of ink, and even discover different shades of black, whether from big ink bottles or from the smaller sample vials sold by some retailers. Trying different inks is one of the pleasures of using fountain pens.
With the pen, nib, and ink, the last requirement for writing is the paper. Cheap porous paper is an adequate surface for the ink-paste in ball point pens, but it can soak up fountain pen ink like a sponge and blur the writing. This "feathering" of the written line is usually not bad with a nib as fine as this Metropolitan's, but even its writing will look better on smooth non-porous paper. I haven't used a Webnotebook yet, but the other Rhodia paper I've used has been smooth and pleasant to write on. The Webnotebook looks useful as a journal, a planner, or even a catalog of writing samples with various pens and inks.
The bundle seems thoughtfully assembled so that its cost will not intimidate someone who wants to try writing with a fountain pen, yet the bundle's quality will ensure that he enjoys the experience. Good work, Massdrop.
