Hopefully everyone is enjoying the Holidays and are gearing up for the New Year. To celebrate, we are bringing you a review and giveaway of our most popular new pen brand of 2017, Opus 88. That’s right, we’re reviewing and giving away an Opus 88 Koloro Fountain Pen. Hailing from Taiwan, this innovative eye-dropper style fountain pen has been hard to keep on our shelves. Continue reading for a chance to win an Opus 88 Koloro Fountain Pen of your choice from what we have in stock!
The Opus 88 Koloro Fountain Pen has transparent sections that allow you to see the ink levels inside. The Koloro also has ebonite sections that compliment the resin and give the pen a nice clean look. The Koloro comes in four different colors and is available in three nib sizes. Pictured here is the popular Blue Tan color of the Koloro. All of the Koloro’s come with chrome trim, and a matching chrome clip. Engraved on the bottom of the cap, as well as on the nib, is the brand name Opus 88.
The Opus 88 Koloro Fountain Pen is an eye-dropper only fountain pen. It has a large ink capacity of 2 ml. Each pen comes with a free, high-quality eyedropper. Due to the notoriety of leaking for eye-dropper fountain pens, there are a few features worth mentioning on the Koloro. First, there are two o-rings in the pen. There is one that resides behind the nib unit, and the other is just below the threads of the grip sections. These two o-rings help prevent possible leaks. Second, the Koloro also has a piston in the back connected to a rod inside the ink chamber. This piston can be unscrewed to allow air flow into the pen, to help prevent burping due to the transfer of heat from your hand. As well, the rod doubles as both an agitator and primer for the ink. This eye dropper design is found among high end pens and is one of the features that make the Opus 88 Koloro an excellent eye dropper pen.
With all of that said and done, the true test is still to be spoken of. For this review, we used a Blue Blue Opus 88 Koloro Fountain Pen with a Broad nib that one of our employees received for Christmas. We had him ink it up with Nagasawa Kobe Nada Brown Ink. During use, there were no issues with burping or any leakage. The nib was juicy and laid down a lot of ink, although, your experience may vary based on the nib size that you select. All in all, the Koloro gave a wonderful writing experience and was a joy to use.
If you’re new to fountain pens, or have been a user for too many years to mention, the Opus 88 Koloro Fountain Pen needs to be a part of your collection. Not only does it have an ingenious design, it’s also very affordable! Don’t forget to subscribe to our blog so that you don’t miss out on any new releases or giveaways!
