The pen writes wonderfully, its larger than normal size feels fulfilling and has more space on the grip than its cousins to hold the pen properly. I am very happy with my purchase.

Nice big pen. Typically flawless Opus 88 finish, Broad was a little wide for me so I ordered M and F nibs. Have two more Omar’s - great pens!

Koloro
I have really enjoyed this pen. It is very lightweight, but is a good size and has a nice feel. Impressed by how smooth the medium nib I ordered is, and how the line is just right — not too wide, not too narrow. It is among the 1-2 best steel nib pens I own. Surprised Opus isn't talked about more. I got it on sale, and it was well worth. Also, holds a ton of ink.

I do like the dedicated eyedropper concept with the release valve. It works rather better than my attempts at "eyedroppering" cartridge pens. This is a good pen, if a bit on the large size for my personal taste. Unfortunately, I think the fine nib on this was a poor choice for me. It seems more like an extra fine, and is a bit of a dry writer. I later got the Opus 88 Picnic model with a medium nib, which is more like what I would consider an actual fine, and suits me much better.

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.

Omar
The Omar Amber is my third Opus 88 pen, following the first and second editions of the Koloro. This pen is BIG. I like the filling mechanism and ability to close off the feed (great for flying). The nib is delightful to write with. I have Fine, Medium, and Stub (which is my favorite in this pen). The drawbacks are few, one of which is that the cap does not post. This may be an issue or not, as the pen is big enough for my large hands to use unposted, but my preference is for pens that post. The second is that the resin cap is deep, colorful, and a delight to look at. Unfortunately the pen does not have any of the cap’s treatment and is monotone brown with white end cap accents. I really wish the marbling of the cap was carried over to the pen in some fashion. Overall the pen is reliable, comfortable, attractive, and travels well. It’s a keeper.

Koloro Demonstrator
I think Opus 88 makes some amazing pens. I have the Kolor Demonstrator in all the colors and 3 Clear Omars. Fantastic size to encourage a relaxed handgrip and a wonderfully tuned nib out of the box to boot. I have broad, medium, and fine nibs. I'm awaiting a stub.

Omar Demonstrator
Opus88 makes wonderful pens, the Omar Demonstartor
is no different. The sleek construction of the pen feels great in the hand. The eye dropper filler holds a generous amount of ink that doesn't run out quickly. And it writes like butter. What more can you ask for in a pen?

Koloro Demonstrator
I purchased this pen with a stub nib. The first one just didn't have great ink flow. It railroaded easily and had many hard starts. The replacement pen that Pen Chalet sent (super fast by the way) worked flawlessly out of the box. It is nice and wet and a very smooth writer once you become accustomed to a stub nib. I own many pens that are significantly more expensive, but this is one of my favorites to write with. The size is perfect for my hand. The nib makes my handwriting look better than it really is. One thing I learned is that you really do need some silicone grease where the feed screws into the section. There is a little o-ring in there, but it is not sufficient to prevent ink from flowing through the section around the outside of the feed and nib.

I absolutely LOVE this pen. It's girthy around the section, which I like, and the medium nib writes wonderfully.

I'm simply returning for a direct exchange due to a minor defect, but the customer service is second to none to get it sorted. I do all my shopping here.

Koloro Demonstrator
I am very happy with this pen. Bought it mostly for the appearance, but I love the filling system as well. The nib wrote well right out of the box. When I filled it for the first time the ink wouldn't flow to the nib, even after sitting for a good long time. After removing and rinsing with water, it flowed. Fairly wet but not a gusher.

Omar
I bought the Amber with 1.5mm stub and I love it! The Amber color is really nice looking. I personally like the contrast between the cap and barrel even though they are the same color (more or less). I also like the end finials in the ivory color. The nib is so smooth! Great writing experience out of the box. I inked it up with Diamine Ancient Copper; a really good match. The barrel holds plenty of ink even for use with the stub nib.

Definitely get it if you’ve been thinking about it.

This gigantic pen is a beauty to behold especially in the clear color. The look and feel of the plan is soft and understated and classy. It holds a tremendous amount of ink and the flow controller Is a definite plus. I would recommend this pen for anyone looking for a large large pen with a justified high price tag

This is one of my favorite pens! It holds a ton of ink and looks great! I've had a shimmering ink in it for several months and have had no problems with it clogging or hard-starting. I may have to get another one! My only issue is the cap takes almost four complete turns to remove.

While I have converted other pens to eye droppers, this is the first one I have owned that fills this way exclusively. The steel F nib is quite smooth, and I like the shutoff function to prevent “burping”

Koloro
This pen is well built for the great price I paid for it. I got the yellow/orange version, which wasn't exactly the color I had expected but it's nice in a quirky way. (The yellow is more green than I expected.) It holds a ton of ink and the nib is quite smooth. However, I did immediately swap it out for a stub Jowo nib and housing that I had on hand, which was very easy to do. The flow is wet (which I like for stub nibs) as long as I remember to open up the stopper. This mechanism does its job in preventing burping, a common issue with eyedropper fillers. I had my pen roll in a car on a road trip and in the end, all the other eyedropper filled pens leaked a bit, but the Koloro was clean as can be. The ebonite does have a rather peculiar smell... like vitamins. Not terrible, just a little odd.
