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 German 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.

The Opus 88 Koloro is one of the most refreshing designs to come along in recent time, especially for a moderately priced pen. The combination of ebonite, and acrylic is brilliant, and I love the unusual tan/blue combination. The construction is first rate and overall quality is great. The only issue I have with mine is that it doesn't write well. I have a number of Japanese eyedroppers with the shut off valve so I know how they work. This pen will dry up after a few sentences and that is with the valve open or closed. I'm sure this is exclusive to my pen, but a little disappointing since I had been looking forward to it. Temperamental, but I still recommend this pen since I'm sure this just an anomaly with mine.

Bought the demonstrator first but want to get the others for their colors and am not disappointed. I'm going to have to go Pokemon and collect them all.

Firstly the service I received from Pen Chalet was absolutely wonderful. I received the pen so promptly it felt like the store was in my same city! Secondly I really like this pen. I purchased it at a great price so I couldn’t ask for a better experience! I’m definitely ordering from this business again. I don’t know what took me so long!

I really like the looks of this pen; that's what drew me to it. I like the ebonite tan sections alternated with the pale teal translucent sections. I like the fact that it is an eyedropper and that I have to open the back knob to write with it. All of that is good old-fashioned stuff that lures many fountain pen users to certain models. Now, on the minus side: I got a M nib, but it didn't write like a M. It wrote more like an EF. And I like fat nibs. So, on a hunch, I pulled out my box of spare nibs. Fished out a TWSBI MINI 1.1 mm stub. Not the 580, or the Vac 700, or the Vac mini, but the regular mini. Unscrewed the nib & feed on the Opus, then unscrewed the nib & feed on the TWSBI. Then, to my amazement and disbelief, the TWSBI nib screwed right into the opening on the Opus and it works like a dream. So I've essentially got a TWSBI pen in an Opus body. Awesome! The nibs are the same size (#5) and if you own a TWSBI, well, you know how their nibs write. Pretty darn good. Now that I have switched nibs, I am very happy with my Opus 88 Koloro. One thing I must mention: I have very small hands, and when posted, the Opus is way too big for me to write much with. My hand would get sore and tired. However, unposted, it's pretty comfortable. So: Lord help me, I might consider one of the other color models. I like them all. That's where the obsession comes in. If you are happy with the Opus narrow nib, or if you don't mind switching a TWSBI nib into it to get a fatter one, then I recommend this pen for you. I mainly recommend it based on its looks. It also functions very well, as far as the filling system and shut-off valve goes. It's a very good pen. But I say that based mainly on its appearance. It just appeals to me, in all its color offerings.

I was intrigued by this pen whilst reading a review on wellappointed desk. Did some more research and decided to take the plunge, as I have yet to have an eye-dropper pen in my collection.

I ordered the M nib version, which I find a bit too much like European F nib, a replacement is on the way.

It wrote straight out of the box, nib is nice and smooth with just a hint of feedback. I like the size and the pen does not become "top heavy" when posted.
Last but not least it hold "a lot" of ink.

I normally look for and write with vintage fountain pens, however, once and a while a modern pen catches my attention. This was the case with the Koloro Opus 88. I've never owned an eye dropper fill pen and this one is easy to fill and writes very well. I love the design! Thanks to the nice folks at Pen Chalet for the free and prompt shipping. I will be back!

Q:

2. The pens are manufactured in Taiwan.
3. The unposted length without the cap on is 5 inches.
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.

Opus 88 Koloro Video



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.
