About the Opus 88 Koloro

The Opus 88 Koloro fountain pen comes with a perfect balance of ebonite and acrylic. The transparent barrel allows the ink level to be view-able at all times. Designed specifically as an eye dropper with a control knob and center bar inside the barrel to help control ink flow, this type of eye dropper system is only typically found among high-end pens.

The Opus 88 fountain pen has been fitted with a JOWO stainless steel nib for a great writing experience. Each pen comes with a small bulb eye dropper to fill the pen with 2ml of ink. Select the color combination that is right for you.

Opus 88 Koloro Video Script

This is the Opus 88 Koloro Fountain Pen. It comes in a brown cardboard sleeve, the Opus 88 logos embossed in gold on the top. That sleeve slides off and there is a black cardboard box for the pen. Once again the Opus 88 logo in white, since 1977 in the bottom corner. Hinge style lid that has a magnetic catch. Inside is information about Opus 88 and the Koloro pen. And since it is an eyedropper pen, there is an eyedropper that is included with the pen. The bulb syringe slides out to expose the glass portion. It is a glass eyedropper that allows you to fill the pen and of course, we have the Opus 88 Koloro Fountain Pen. It is made of resin on the transparent sections, this particular pen is actually filled with ink and you can see the ink level on the inside. You can also see through the cap and see the nib on the inside.

The other parts of the pen are made of ebonite, the tan parts of the pen, as happened to be the blue and tan version of the pen. The pen of course comes in different colors as well kind of accents that the pen make really nice. It is a lightweight pen with that looks really good.

The trim on the pens are a chrome color. There is a chrome ring with a chrome clip and a small chrome ring at the bottom of the pen. Also, at the bottom of the cap of the pen, "Opus 88" is engraved into the cap. That cap unscrews and is threaded. It can be posted on the end of the pen. It is a good-sized pen. It also has a matching resin section on the pen and comes with a stainless steel nib with Opus 88 engraved on it and feed on the backside.

To change the ink on the pen you would unscrew the section of the pen and then you can fill it with the eyedropper. This pen is specifically made as an eyedropper pen, so has a high-end eyedropper system. You can release the back-end of the pen and that allows air to flow through. It also has a small piston or shaft that allows you to burp the pen if you need to, but I've been writing with it for a while, I haven't had any issues at all with it. Great pen, beautiful design.

This is a very fine fountain pen for everyday use. It is an eyedropper filler which means that writers who have used cartridges or converters will have to get used to this method of refilling and how to use the pen's mechanism to start/control ink flow. But, having learned that, people should enjoy the pen's handling, grip, and overall feel. I am a fan of broad point nibs and this one does not disappoint. The nib is firm and the flow is very smooth. I also bought a medium nib as an extra to try out.The finish and colors are very contemporary and pleasing. I would rate this fountain on on a par with TWSBI's best on quality of build and even higher on materials.

I think this pen self fills while I'm sleeping, it doesn't seem to run out of ink. Writes very well. The simplicity of the pen is nice, and elegant. The classic engraving of OPUS 88 on the cap is a lovely touch. My first OPUS pen.

This is a nice eye dropper pen. Has a traditional pen style with Ebonite & resin material but holds a good amount of ink. Writes well, but i use it more for drawing do to it's large ink capacity. Dig all my Opus 88's.

Opus makes very high quality pens for the price. There's no exception to that with Koloro. Very good finish and the nib is very smooth and ink flow quite consistent.

It's a nice pen. I am just not used to the type of filling mechanism - ink flow will stop if you don't open it a little bit.

Very well made pen! I love the look and feel of it, and also love that it comes with an eye dropper system. It is well worth the money spent.

I'm a big fan of the Opus 88 fountain pens, especially their sealed-eyedropper filling system (which is very friendly to airplane travel). I think of this as a Koloro Demi as it is smaller than the full-size Koloro pens, which is a good thing as it has features those pens lack. Unlike it's larger sibling, this pen's cap actually posts, although posting makes it a little back heavy. It also sports a smaller #5 nib instead of the larger #6, but that's not an issue as both nibs are good performers, if fairly stiff, and offer little in the way of flex. The green/tan version is sharp looking IMHO. This pen definitely has an equal place with its larger brethren.

Q:
What is an eye dropper Pen? And won’t it leak all over the place?
Asked on Nov 10 2017 by Carter
A:
An eyedropper pen fills the entire body using a syringe or eye dropper. The advantage is that the pen holds more ink. Since it has been designed as an eyedropper it has o-rings to prevent leakage.
Q:
Can you tell me the diameter in grip section?
Thank you!
Asked on Nov 8 2017 by Jorge
A:
The section on the Opus 88 fountain pen is about .0375 inches at the narrowest point and about .4375 inches at the widest. The section is about 0.875 inches long.
