Hello there!
Are there any leftovers or a chance to get into the drop after it has ended (aka: right now?)
I would somewhat love to get some Metropolitans.

Best regards,
Sascha
Folks at MD... Will we ever get a drop of the stub variant of this pen?
Was about to join when I noticed my old buddy Amazon has the black in fine nib for right around 10 bucks. This is a good deal if you want more than one or a different color, but I just wanted to try the model out. Set to arrive Thursday at the office.

Wish I knew that "Aerometric converter" aka "Cleaning converter" was not meant for ink filling, but instead to help with cleaning. Reddit is filled with guys that tell the converter stuck because of this (it's not meant for ink filling as they say). If description told me that I'd get a con-40 along with the drop. Amazon doesn't dispatch con-40 to my country. Great! Now I need to hunt a con-40 elsewhere..

Catch-up: the cartridge that comes with the pen works great as a converter. I syringe-fill with bottled ink, and works great. And because the cartridge doesn't have "nipple" like international generic cartridges, it may be used many times. You can even re-seal the cartridge after filling (there's a black plastic thingy that works as a seal, and can used to re-seal).
Hi, I'm new to fountain pens and want to buy ink for the pen, however, after googling I got quite confused.

I liked the color of Pelikan 4001, however, Google told me that this pen is a "dry pen", and likes "wet inks", so combination of Metropolitan and Pelikan 4001 (dry ink) would result skipping while typing.

So, for a medium nib, can anyone suggest me a good and preferably cheap ink ? Is Pelikan 4001 ink okay for this pen ? How's Waterman intense black ?

Thanks in advance,

Catch-up. Ended with J. Herbin Perle Noire, it's a great ink and works quite nicely with Metropolitan. Got the bottle for like ~$6.5 from a local shop.

I use the Pelikan 4001 inks with this pen. I have not had any skipping issues. But I do use it daily.
Hi! Does anyone know how long the shipping delay will be? I don’t mind it shipping late, but I’m moving next month and I’d like to know if I need to update my shipping address or not. Thanks!

I did. Thank you!
Got mine too. Looks like it was only a 3-day delay. Woo Woo!
Yesterday was the estimated shipping date. Anyone got the shipping information yet ?

Yeah, recently I got that email, too. I hope this doesn't take too long.
Just got the shipping notification :)
SOS, beginner here! :)
Got myself a metropolitan fountain pen, and there are a few things I need to know, mainly:
1. How to swap out the squishy ink drawer for the converter
2. How to draw ink up using either mechanisms
3. How to lock the converter after having fully drawn the ink
4. How to wash the fountain pen after all ink has been dispensed
Greatly appreciate any help, tips and advice!
