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. Select the color combination that is right for you.

Exclusive for Pen Chalet within the US.

The Opus 88 is such a pleasant surprise! I didn’t quite know what to expect from a sub-$100 fountain pen from a brand I’d never heard of. But you’ve got a gem, my friend! It’s so well made and so well finished. The presentation is gorgeous. It writes beautifully. And the eyedropper system with the “rod” in the middle is genius to keep the ink from getting trapped behind a large bubble of air. I also like that by screwing back down the blind cap, you can effectively shut the pen off which may make it safer for flight / travel.

I think this pen would easily fit in the $150-200 range and I’d recommend it over just about any other sub-$100 fountain pen anywhere. The only caveat being that eyedropper pens can be a bit polarizing with some people being totally open to them while others aren’t comfortable with them. But if you can get past that (and why wouldn’t you since they include a very high quality glass filler!?), this thing is a GEM!

I received my first Opus88 Koloro in the teal blue ebonite and light translucent blue acrylic, and immediately ordered another one (brown ebonite/light blue acrylic). I especially like the rod and valve mechanism in the barrel, which eliminates two of the concerns I've always had with an eyedropper: risk of ink leaking during travel, and no way to increase ink flow. The rod/valve mechanism solves these problems perfectly: one can close the valve for travel and open it for ink flow, and if a bit more ink is needed to prime the feed, it can be done by adjusting the rod. The ebonite and acrylic are machined well, with no tool marks or flaws in the materials. I was hoping the section was ebonite, but it is the same acrylic as the barrel (which still looks quite nice). The nib is a #5 steel German nib which is appropriate for the pen's size, and it was perfectly tuned - very smooth out of the box. I hope Opus88 comes out with more interesting designs. This is a quality pen that's priced economically. It's great to see Pen Chalet carrying some of these quality brands not found elsewhere.

Q:
Who makes the nib? Thanks.

Q:
1. Does this pen post securely??
2. Where was the pen manufactured??
3. What is the UNPOSTED length of the pen, nib tip to back (or - is the pen long enough to write with unposted)???
Asked on Nov 10 2017 by Mark
A:
1. Yes the Opus 88 Koloro pen does post securely.
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.
