I own many eyedropper fountain pens, particularly ebonite, this combo of that material and acrylic grabbed my attention when I saw it. The pen feels great in the hand and is indeed a unique design,both aesthetically and functionally. Blurping is a common problem in eyedroppers, this pen uses a chamber rod to try and prevent that,so far it's worked. My greatest surprise has been the smoothness of the steel nib (a bold) all in all I'm a happy camper!

My first impression was that a #5 nib was too small for the size of the pen but given that I like to write small and draw small, but also like a bigger pen, this works really really well.

The material feels "rich" and reminds me of the Pelikan 215 material. It's kind of sticky grippy and I love that kind of acrylic for a pen body.

Being an eyedropper may lead to messy situations like micro droplets of ink flying around and on your cloths, just a little more car when filling the pen in comparison to a piston filler.

An excellent pen at a very fair price.

Underwhelming. For just under $100, I was expecting more. It is very light weight, there is nothing exceptional about the nib, and the filling mechanism takes some fiddling to get right. My M nib felt a tad scratchy, which is probably what put me off initially, but I had high hopes and this ended up, middling. In contrast, I got the (cheaper) Conklin DuraFlex around the same time, and it was a hit right out of the box. Everything about it was classy and a bit unique. Don't think I will investigate Opus 88 any farther. Lesson learned.

The build quality of the the Opus 88 Koloro is excellent, however I've had nothing but hard starts with cutoff valve very much open. It could be the ink I'm using, Organics Studio - Ernest Hemingway, seeing I've flushed it twice and filled it with the same ink all three times. Yet to fill it with a different ink. I have some Noodler's Black Eel that seems to gush out any pen I put it in, so that will be the next try. Over all I am disappointed with the Koloro pen seeing I just got a Moonman M2 for a fifth of the price and it has no issues with the Organics Studio ink. *shrugs*

The Opus 88 Koloro is one of the most refreshing designs to come along in recent time, especially for a moderately priced pen. The combination of ebonite, and acrylic is brilliant, and I love the unusual tan/blue combination. The construction is first rate and overall quality is great. The only issue I have with mine is that it doesn't write well. I have a number of Japanese eyedroppers with the shut off valve so I know how they work. This pen will dry up after a few sentences and that is with the valve open or closed. I'm sure this is exclusive to my pen, but a little disappointing since I had been looking forward to it. Temperamental, but I still recommend this pen since I'm sure this just an anomaly with mine.

Bought the demonstrator first but want to get the others for their colors and am not disappointed. I'm going to have to go Pokemon and collect them all.

Firstly the service I received from Pen Chalet was absolutely wonderful. I received the pen so promptly it felt like the store was in my same city! Secondly I really like this pen. I purchased it at a great price so I couldn’t ask for a better experience! I’m definitely ordering from this business again. I don’t know what took me so long!
