The Opus 88 Jazz Holiday Clear fountain pen is a new addition in the Opus 88 series. The Jazz fountain pen collection of Opus 88 is a classical designed pen which is available in a variety of colors. The Holiday Jazz Demonstrator version is matte and semi-translucent, with ruthenium (dark silver) details.
