From two well-known brands, Pilot and Rhodia, comes a top-notch starter set for anyone new to fountain pens. You’ll get a Pilot Metropolitan pen, long considered the gold standard for fountain pens in its class. Featuring a durable brass barrel and a stainless steel nib, it’s compatible with both cartridges and converters. This makes it a step up from disposable fountain pens that can’t be filled with bottled ink and won’t hold up to continued everyday use. Also included is a Rhodia A5 Webnotebook, hardbound with a leatherette cover and filled with 96 sheets of lined 90-gram ivory paper. This glossy, smooth surface lends itself well to fountain pens, and doesn’t allow bleed-through or feathering like some other paper types. A converter and 12-pack of ink cartridges will get you writing right out of the box.
Note: This drop includes a Pilot Metropolitan fountain pen with a fine nib, a black Rhodia A5 Webnotebook with lined paper, a 12-pack of Pilot Namiki black ink cartridges, and a Pilot CON-50 converter. You’ll have your choice of color for the fountain pen: black, gold, or silver.
