The mechanical pencil foregoes the black grip section, allowing the curve of the body to continue uninterrupted through the silver nose cone and conical lead sleeve. The rear of the pencil is styled to look like a posted cap and has a functional clip. An exposed silver section provides space for the “cap” to move down when pressed to advance the lead. Overall, the refined look of the Pilot Metropolitan series makes each of its members seem at least twice as expensive as it is.
Inspired by nature, the Iroshizuku lineup offers 24 captivating colors drawn from across the seasons and landscapes of Japan. The name Iroshizuku means “droplets of color,” and each color is so clean and natural that you can almost imagine it being collected like dewdrops from tree leaves or cherry blossoms.
Iroshizuku inks are not just gorgeous in appearance—they are beautifully presented and well-behaved, too. They come in award-winning designer glass bottles, flow smoothly and reliably in nearly any pen, and are easy to clean out when you’re ready to change inks. For those who love sheen, many Iroshizuku inks will provide a spectacular red or gold sheen when used in a wet pen on fountain pen friendly paper.
