The stunning appearance of this pen is surpassed only by its luscious feel. It is a beautiful writer and fits well in the hand.

This Opus 88 Koloro Clear Demonstrator is a fantastic pen! It is a big pen, both in girth and length. It is quite comfortable, but I do have large hands and prefer larger pens (Pelikan M1000, Visconti Homo Sapiens, etc.). The pen fills easily, but I used a syringe to get by the rubber stopper. That stopper works wonderfully, by the way. I took this pen on a trip and it didn't spill or leak a drop on the plane. Other pens were not as well behaved. Make sure to loosen the top every once in a while to let the ink flow while writing.
The only down side is that the pen does NOT post. It wasn't designed for that as the body and cap are the same size. This makes for a striking visual effect, but the casualty is posting the cap. I prefer to have a posted pen (don't like to set the cap aside), but the Opus 88 is big enough that a posted cap would make it unwieldy.
I purchased the 1.5mm Stub Nib option, and it writes like it should. The German nib is a Jowo, I beleive, as it is nearly identical to a 1.5mm loose nib I purchased.
I love this pen and will keep it in the rotation of daily writers.

At first glance the fountain pen is not impressive until it is filled with ink of choice and then it looks like a pretty magic wand. It holds a lot of ink! The nib writes smoothly out of the box. I’ve not had any issues subsequent to initial writing. Inks May stain the inside of the barrel.

Ink capacity is great, the pen looks fantastic, and it is a nice size to hold.

I bought this to try Azizah's (of Gourmet Pens) "hack" of putting the Pilot Parallel nib on the Koloro Demonstrator. It is so much fun!

This pen is just a fantastic writer. I ordered mine with a broad nib, and it's hands down the smoothest, juiciest pen in my collection. The stopper that regulates ink flow is a nice feature. At first I wasn't sure quite what I thought of it, but now that I've had a few weeks to write with it, I really like how I can reduce the wetness by closing it up if I'm using paper that can't quite withstand a big, broad, gushing nib. But with paper that can stand up to all that ink...it's a writing experience like none other. I wouldn't suggest this pen with a broad nib as an EDC, but for journaling it's wonderful. It's my first Opus 88 pen, but I'll definitely be buying more. I'd also like to add that Pen Chalet packaged it with care and shipped it to me faster than I expected. I was very please with all aspects of this purchase.

A solid and stout, well made pen. I went with a broad since this thing holds a massive quantity of ink. The nib is smooth as silk and flows fantastically, and you barely need to contact the paper. My only negatives are the fine threads on the cap which look nice, but it takes four and a quarter turns to remove. The threads on the stopper knob are also very fine and tedious to open, but you don't have to do it for shorter writing sessions. I also wish the black finish on the clip was glossy instead of a flat finish, but that's subjective. I recommend this for those who are into demonstrator style pens, or just larger pens.

Out of this world; writes like no other pen in my collection. Broad nib too wide for poor quality paper due to feathering of j herbin ink

Everything about this pen suits my taste perfectly-a fat Demonstrator with a stub. Kudos to Opus for coming up with this pen. Before I forget, it is also a wonderful writer with just an iota of feedback. I gave it Below Average for functionality because of the number of times the cap needs to be rotated. Otherwise, this pen is solid.
