Yookers Metis Matte Black Fiber Pen
Inspired by vintage 1950's design, the Yookers Metis has a classic, timeless look. Yookers is the first refillable felt-tip pen that uses standard fountain pen ink cartridges.
This brass pen has a screw-cap and is complemented by gunmetal trim. It comes with a standard international converter so you can fill this pen from a bottle of fountain pen ink, or it also accepts short and long standard international cartridges.
The front grip section is removable and interchangeable so you can easily clean the pen as well as switch out the tip size.
We recommend staying away from highly pigmented or shimmering inks in these pens, as the pigment/glitter will clog and not make its way through the tip onto your paper. Conventional fountain pen inks will work best.
To clean this pen:
Unscrew the barrel from the tip section.
1. Rinse the tip by filling and emptying it with water (repeat this until the water is clear). Use caution as ink residue will flow out.
2. Place the tip section into a beaker or other container of clean water. The water level should completely cover the tip. Be sure to use room temperature or lukewarm water. Distilled water will work best (tap water sometimes contains particles which may clog the feed). Never use alcohol, as this will damage the feed or other parts of the pen.
3. Let the tip soak for 10 to 15 minutes, then blot dry with a paper towel. Soak the tip overnight if necessary.
4. Wash your pen every few weeks or whenever changing ink colors.

I've had the Metis for a couple of weeks now and have no complaints. It's well balanced and writes so easily with a smooth feel.
