Customer Reviews

Opus 88 Jazz
This was one of the pens that initially I got just for the gorgeous light blue color, having never tried anything from Opus before. But writing with this has been amazing! This pen has quickly become my daily carry and easily my most used pen along with my Pelikan and decimos. The only issue I have with it is that sometimes it will cut off writing if I leave it open too long without writing but then if I twist the piston it will start right back up. The nib on this is steel but it’s easily better then some of my gold nibs. Now I am super excited to try more pens from opus!

Opus 88 #12 Replacement
This is my first stub nib, and I purchased it to replace a fine nib in my Opus 88 Demonstrator that was just a little too stingy with ink for my taste. The nibs we’re extremely easy to switch out, the new nib fits perfectly, and now I get so much joy out of the stylistic flourishes this stub nib provides. I’m beyond pleased.

Opus 88 Koloro
This is a very fine fountain pen for everyday use. It is an eyedropper filler which means that writers who have used cartridges or converters will have to get used to this method of refilling and how to use the pen's mechanism to start/control ink flow. But, having learned that, people should enjoy the pen's handling, grip, and overall feel. I am a fan of broad point nibs and this one does not disappoint. The nib is firm and the flow is very smooth. I also bought a medium nib as an extra to try out.The finish and colors are very contemporary and pleasing. I would rate this fountain on on a par with TWSBI's best on quality of build and even higher on materials.

Opus 88 Premium Shell
I ordered the “Black Pearl” and the “Stripes” in Med. nibs and they’re wonderful. Beautifully finished and smaller and heavier than the “Jazz”. Shorter but about the same girth as a “Koloro”. The nibs are as are all Opus - great. With the nice concave nib section I can use them posted or not. Not back-weighted but a little heavy when posted. I really like these pens.

Opus 88 Omar Demonstrator
I got the orange/green combo, this is my first Opus 88. The #6 nib writes well & is swappable if you need a different nib; original is semi-ornate & personalized with the brand, something they didn't have to do but i appreciate the attention to detail. The body is more orange-green leaning teal (but that's nit picking). The cap takes 3 full turns to take off, so this isnt exactly a quick writer. The ink capacity is humongous, coming in at over 3ml; I advise you get at least a medium nib to use in a decent amount of time, unless you have a 3000+ words essay to write, lol. For the price this is well worth your money to buy for around $100 or so.

Pen Chalet got this order to me in 2 days! They included all kinds of coupon codes for future discounts & kept me informed the entire time my package was in transit, they are one of the most useful places to shop, especially for military, giving 15% off which is the highest consistent discount i've been able to find for fountain pen stores. God bless (Matthew 5:45)!

Opus 88 Koloro
I think this pen self fills while I'm sleeping, it doesn't seem to run out of ink. Writes very well. The simplicity of the pen is nice, and elegant. The classic engraving of OPUS 88 on the cap is a lovely touch. My first OPUS pen.

Opus 88 Premium Shell
Absolutely gorgeous! I purchased the Black Mother of Pearl and I couldn't be more delighted. All the reasons I love my other 1/2 dozen Opus pens (girth, smoothness of their extra fine nibs) plus the beauty of the MOP is just exquisite. Of note, the filling mechanism is a standard converter, but holds quite a lot of ink. It's a very fine example of a high-end looking pen at a very good price. Nothing not to like.

Opus 88 Koloro Demonstrator
The Opus 88 Koloro "Colorful" fountain pen is so pretty, lovely. TI am pleased with it. The nib was not as smooth out of the box as that of my Opus 88 Jazz, but a little smoothing on a couple grit sheets, and it is better. The build quality is excellent. They are large pens, but comfortable in my small hands. I hope Opus 88 soon offers new models and colors. I love these pens.

Opus 88 Koloro Demonstrator
Bought two on sale in the Dark Grey-a nice choice if you're not into all those bright colors. Even though grey is quite dark, there's just enough translucence to gauge the amount of ink left in it's high capacity barrel. Nice tight seal ensures ink freshness. The only con for me is it doesn't post, thus I'm wary about removing it from my desk. Good quality, nice extra-fine nib, smooth right out of the box. This is a quite large yet lightweight pen and easy with which to write for long sessions.

Opus 88 Premium Shell
I've loved all my Opus pens but this Black Mother of Pearl(MOP) is truly stunning. Finally, a grown-up looking Opus pen at a price that belies its very expensive looks. I expected the MOP to be laid in strips but on this pen its completely smooth all the way 'round the barrel. The section, cap and end are a beautiful matte black finish with lovely heavy silver (chrome) clip and rings that really give it all a high-end look. Nib performance, as always, is excellent though quite firm. Of note, this one's not an eyedropper or a vacuum filler, just a larger sized converter which filled and wrote perfectly straight from the box. Compared to a $700 Italian pearled barrel I own - it has nicer quality MOP, and if the Opus had been available with a nice 14k nib, I'd have chosen the Opus over the Italian job. Form and function-very glad I purchased. May be back for another at this price point. I can only speak to the quality of the Black MOP (white and brown-grey) but it is top notch. Well done Opus and PenChalet for carrying these Premium Shell beauties!

Opus 88 Koloro
This is a nice eye dropper pen. Has a traditional pen style with Ebonite & resin material but holds a good amount of ink. Writes well, but i use it more for drawing do to it's large ink capacity. Dig all my Opus 88's.

Took a chance on this color, thinking it might be too girly .However its a cool look. Its a confetti design with translucent areas. Works for me, posts and plays well with my other Opus 88's.

I love this pen! I wasn't sure how I would like the EF Nib but it is super smooth and has plenty of ink flow. The ink delivery system on the Opus 88 is genius! Even though this pen was an open box item it appeared new in every way.

Opus 88 Koloro Demonstrator
I have the orange demonstrator with M nib. The pen is a reliable writer with consistently good performance. The Opus 88 steel nibs are quite a value. In my opinion, Opus 88 nibs out-perform many other brands in its price range. I used a blue-ish ink, 3 fills before cleaning, and had no staining. The shuttle feature is awesome.

Opus 88 Omar Flora
Wow, this pen is even more stunning in reality than the picture. I have small hands so I tend to use it without posting the cap as it makes it quite heavy. It took a bit for me to get used to the eyedropper filling method. Be sure to pull the plunger all the way out to fill it. Otherwise, it won't create enough "pressure" to force the ink down into the nib. At least, in my experience. I do unscrew it a bit whenever I write. I filled it with the Monteverde Caribbean Blue which is also the same color as the blue "flecks" in the pen. Lovely.

Opus 88 Koloro Demonstrator
The person I got this for has declared it his new favorite pen, so I do believe it's a hit! It holds *a lot* of ink. Very satisfying writing experience too. Fits well for big hands especially, though even my smaller hands enjoyed writing with it. I think because of the winter weather, the nib/feed shifted a little bit in how it was set during shipping and when it warmed back up in the house, so I'd check for that (with any pen, really) just in case, but it was pretty easy to nudge back in place, even after the pen was filled. Probably best to give it time to warm up and settle. Also, as with other eye-dropper Opus 88s, give the feed some time to fill with ink (or pump it, but it might take a couple pumps) or you'll have a harder time getting started.

Opus 88 #10 Replacement
Exactly what I wanted (lovely Opus 88 stub nib). As a bonus, I took my original Opus nib (broad) and swapped out the fine nib in my TWSBI Eco. It works perfectly in there for an upgraded Eco experience, though a little loose since it's not exactly the same size as the Eco nibs.
