    Opus 88 Picnic Video Script

    This is the Opus 88 Koloro Picnic Fountain Pen. It comes in a gray cardboard sleeve, the Opus 88 logo is embossed in a silver color on the top. That cardboard sleeve slides off and there is another cardboard box for the pen, with the Opus 88 logo. This box has a black leather texture on the exterior. Magnetic hinge at the front, and that lid lifts open. There is information about Opus 88 included with the pen. There is also a glass eye dropper for the pen. It is just a small eye dropper. Also, of course, we have the Opus 88 Koloro Picnic Series Fountain Pen.

    This is a clear demonstrator pen where you can see through the cap and barrel of the pen. The interior is machined, so it has a bit of a frosted look on the inside. The outside exterior of the pen has a nice and glossy and polished. You can see the polished finish real well on the top of the cap and the end of the barrel of the pen. Both of those are just nice, polished pieces. Silver trim on the pen. It has a ring at the top that attaches the clip on the pen. At the bottom of the cap is Opus 88 logo printed on the pen. And another silver ring matching at the bottom of the barrel. The cap on the pen is threaded. It unscrews and it can be posted on the end of the barrel of the pen, if you would like. It has a stainless steel German nib with the Opus 88 logo engraved, and a black feed on the backside.

    The Opus 88 Picnic is an eye dropper pen. It has a high end eye dropper system built into it. So, the section on the pen unscrews at the front and this allows you to fill the pen with ink. It also has a small O-ring at the front, which keeps the pen sealed so that it won't leak. And then there is a knob at the end of the barrel to control a piston or an actuator inside the barrel of the pen. This knob allows you to slide the piston out so you can fill the pen, and then you push that back up. This agitates the ink and burps it so there is no problem with burping or anything like that while using the pen. It works really well and the pen holds a lot of ink. Just a great fountain pen.

    A good functional eyedropper pen. A bit fatter than I find ideal for my personal taste, but still comfortable enough to hold. I like the medium nib, which writes quite smoothly and is on the finer side of medium, good from my point of view. I find this easier to fill with a syringe and a long blunt needle than with the included eyedropper. Every now and then, when writing at greater length, it's useful to crack the vent on this to give the flow a boost. Attractive enough without being in any way fancy; I got it in the brown. Holds a lot of ink, although I neglected to measure how much I put in on the first fill. This makes a good pen for work, where I want good performance and high ink capacity, but may not want to risk one of my nicer vintage pens.

    Medium nib is not too broad for my taste, and I'm usually a fine nib guy. Works great! Smooth writer. Nice ink capacity. Love the look too.

    I love this pen, but I wish I had purchased a fine. I did not anticipate how juicy the nib would be.

    This is a very nice pen and a value for the money. I purchased with a replacement stub nib. It was a cheaper make of nib and I have had some problems with the writing with this nib. The nib that came with it a medium Opus was great. Nice sized pen too.

    The Picnic holds a lot of ink which works well with the broad nib in my pen.

    This is a lovely pen, and I really appreciate that it holds so much ink. It's beautifully finished and very nicely balanced. It's writing a bit dry just now (using the Colorverse ink that came with it) - sometimes skips a little bit. I'm still getting to know it.
