This is a quality pen. I have been using for a few weeks and have had absolutely no issues with it. It is easy to fill and just as easy to flush out.

So, I have to honest - I was really sceptical about this pen, but I decided to pull the trigger anyway. And I think this was really a good buy. The quality on the pen is quite exceptional, I mean, the nib ALWAYS aligns to the back of the cap, so you could clearly see the nib when the pen is capped. The pen holds quite a large amount of ink, and it does not write as wet as I expected. I was blown away by the quality of the pen, and I think if you like dark demonstrators, this might be the pen for you!

Love the look and the nib. Very smooth, but writes more like an extra fine nib. My only complaint is that it takes just about four full rotations of the cap to uncap or recap, which is the only reason I gave it a lower mark for functionality. Other than that I'm happy with the purchase, and Pen Chalet customer service was top notch. I'm waiting for PC to get the demonstator in now. Hoping it doesn't have the same issue with capping/uncapping...

Great pen. Very happy with it. Love the ink control rod with the ability to close off the ink supply.

The Opus 88 is a great pen! The blue/tan is a great combo, and the steel nib is wonderfully smooth. The filling system is very easy to use, and it’s nice to not always have a cartridge/converter system. As usual, Pen Chalet’s customer service can’t be beat. No joke, pick up this pen!

A very cool looking pen which writes quite nicely. My only complaint is that the ink migrates under the barrel into the nib theads, which is somewhat unsightly, particularly since it doesn’t occur evenly.

The Opus 88 is such a pleasant surprise! I didn’t quite know what to expect from a sub-$100 fountain pen from a brand I’d never heard of. But you’ve got a gem, my friend! It’s so well made and so well finished. The presentation is gorgeous. It writes beautifully. And the eyedropper system with the “rod” in the middle is genius to keep the ink from getting trapped behind a large bubble of air. I also like that by screwing back down the blind cap, you can effectively shut the pen off which may make it safer for flight / travel.

I think this pen would easily fit in the $150-200 range and I’d recommend it over just about any other sub-$100 fountain pen anywhere. The only caveat being that eyedropper pens can be a bit polarizing with some people being totally open to them while others aren’t comfortable with them. But if you can get past that (and why wouldn’t you since they include a very high quality glass filler!?), this thing is a GEM!

I received my first Opus88 Koloro in the teal blue ebonite and light translucent blue acrylic, and immediately ordered another one (brown ebonite/light blue acrylic). I especially like the rod and valve mechanism in the barrel, which eliminates two of the concerns I've always had with an eyedropper: risk of ink leaking during travel, and no way to increase ink flow. The rod/valve mechanism solves these problems perfectly: one can close the valve for travel and open it for ink flow, and if a bit more ink is needed to prime the feed, it can be done by adjusting the rod. The ebonite and acrylic are machined well, with no tool marks or flaws in the materials. I was hoping the section was ebonite, but it is the same acrylic as the barrel (which still looks quite nice). The nib is a #5 steel German nib which is appropriate for the pen's size, and it was perfectly tuned - very smooth out of the box. I hope Opus88 comes out with more interesting designs. This is a quality pen that's priced economically. It's great to see Pen Chalet carrying some of these quality brands not found elsewhere.
