Customer Reviews

Koloro
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.

Koloro
I mainly collect Pelikan pens from m120 to m1000, and a few Sailors. I rarely buy pens in this price range, except for the occasional Kaweco, Esterbrook (vintage model J), and Sheaffer( vintage). I tried a TWISBI before, but the pen felt rather cheap and the quality was lacking. However, the Opus 88 Koloro blew my mind. It wrote exceptionally well and has a quality build. I would even dare say that the quality is on par with Sailor and Pelikan. I ordered an extra fine nib, and it wrote better than even my 14k-21k gold nibs. Must own pen, even if you have higher dollar pens like I do.

Omar Demonstrator
Have several Opus 88 pens but this Omar series is my favorite. And a grandchild, who loves her candy, was standing beside me as I inboxed this one. She has christened it “The Butterscotch”.
As all the Omars- it writes without a glitch and never dries out. I keep several on my desk. They are all a joy. See SBR Brown’s You Tube on this model. It’s all true.

Bela
A beautiful pen. It's a pleasure to hold and to look at. And it writes like all my other Opus 88 pens. Flawlessly and with perfect accuracy. Very smooth. I have three Opus 88 pens and I will likely have more. They're a fine company and they produced a superb product.

Koloro Demonstrator
I’ve never really been obsessed with demonstrators; I don’t hate them, but they’ve always felt like a bit of a gimmick. That being said, as soon as I saw this pen, I knew that I wanted it and I’ve been extremely happy with the purchase. I love the large size, simple but distinctive cylinder shape, and the absurd amount of ink that it holds. It’s not perfect; the eye dropper filing system is more involved than a simple cartridge converter or piston filler (I didn’t have an eye dropper pen, so that was part of the appeal for me), it tends to burp a little ink into the cap no matter how careful you are, and it’s definitely not a great pen for jotting quick notes. Still, it’s comfortable to hold, writes forever, and the fine #6 JoWo nib on mine is near perfection (smooth and wet with barely any feedback).

Omar Demonstrator
This is my second opus, like the first I love it. Huge ink supply. No burps due to the close off valve. A real nice pen to write with. I have zero complaints or issues. I have a total of 5 opus pens and wonder if I need to purchase any other pens. The valve is the real value here.

Bela
I love this pen. It was my first eyedropper pen. I am not crazy about eyedroppers, but the pen has a great balance and heft. It has a really smooth nib. I actually have two Opus Belas and if it was available in more than the two colors I have, I would buy them.

This is my other other nib I bought, it fits my Opus 88 Koloro just fine. I love the width of the nib, great for verticle lines.

Bela
Opus 88 Red Bela is a beautiful pen. It is large, but fits my small hand well. My typical user pen is an old Esterbrook J, which is much smaller. The Bela posts well, but large as it is, doesn't need to be. For me, when posted balance is top-heavy. Probably not an issue for a larger hand. Inked with Dragon's Napalm and wrote well immediately.

Omar Flora
This pen is showier than I would normally pick, but the vase shape and that it will stand up convinced me I had to have it - plus I love flowers and it puts in mind of a flower garden in bloom. This is my first Omas 88 pen and I am happy that it also writes smoothly and beautifully. Be aware it is an eyedropper pen but comes with an eyedropper and excellent instructions for filling.

Koloro Demonstrator
First, Pen Chalet customer service is AWESOME!

If you haven't had a Koloro Demo before, don't hesitate to buy this pen. I did extensive research to find a demonstrator pen that can hold the most ink possible. This is it.

It writes better than I expected. I am very happy with the purchase.

While I own a number of fountain pens, this has become my daily writer. It holds 3ml and is easy to monitor. I have a large hand and it fits well. Iit works well with shimmer ad flake inks. But I use Zhivago in it daily with a stub nib. Could not be more pleased! Try it!

Koloro
This is my first eye dropper pen. It took me a little bit of experimenting with the control knob and center bar that control ink flow. I ordered the Blue Tan with a fine point nib. The fine point nib is a smooth writer. I enjoy writing with the pen. I have not experienced an issues with the nib. The Koloro has a very nice feel in the hand. The pen is nicely balanced whether you are writing with the pen posted or un-posted. It's a pen that is worth the price and the service from Pen Chalet has been great.

Even though the pen body is larger than what I normally use (Twisbi) it is comfortable and light and writes so so smoothly with DeAtrementis Archive Black, EF nib.The blue/green swirls and the black & white ring details are stunning. A perfect birthday gift to myself.

Omar Demonstrator
I now have 5 of these pens, obviously I really like the Opus88 Omar. These are very big pens and not really for some one with small hands as I think they will be uncomfortable to write with. I like a big pen - if you know the size of a Mont Blanc Le Grande pen - that size. These are bigger when capped and a similar size when the cap is off. I don't think they are designed to used when posted - even I, with my 7-7.5 hand find them too long and unbalanced if I do that. Without the cap posted they are a joy to write with, never hard starting and always a consistent flow whatever the ink. They are eye dropper fill pens and hold a lot of ink which is something else I really like. In addition the pens are well made, come in a range of colours and are very robust. I would highly recommend Opus88 pens but if you don't have one the Opus88 picnic might be a better first purchase, just because of size.

Just like the red version of this pen I purchased, it is even more gorgeous in person than it appears on-line! And, just like the red one, I love it! It fits great in the hand. The (EF) nib is smooth with just a slight bit of feedback. All in all, a great looking, great writing pen! And, I can't say enough about how amazing The Pen Chalet has been in terms of communication, pricing, and amazingly fast order processing/shipping! I give them five stars, too!
