Brand: Opus 88


The Opus 88 Omar fountain pen is a large eyedropper-filled pen with a piston operated shut-off valve. The coloured barrel of this pen is translucent, allowing you to see your ink level. The cap is made of an opaque flecked resin with different shades of the colour the pen comes in. The pen features an ivory resin finial and piston knob, a silver clip, and a silver stainless steel #6 JoWo nib. It also comes with a glass eyedropper to fill the pen with your favorite ink. An ebonite piston and rubber gasket seals the feed off from the barrel when fully depressed, reducing the risk of leakage and burping. By unscrewing the blind cap and loosening the rod at the rear of the barrel, you open up the ink flow to the feed. During long writing sessions, leave the shut-off valve open to take advantage of the impressive ink capacity.

Masterfully engineered to serve both form and function, Opus 88 pens transcend mere communication to reflect the artistry that is the written word. For over two decades, founder Michael Hsu has personally and painstakingly crafted each pen to exacting standards, selectively building his Opus 88 label for discering clientele. Those who recognize the power and beauty of an exquisite writing instrument appreciate his work. Since 1988, as an OEM/ODM supplier, Michael has earned a reputaion for excellence.

    I bought this pen as I wanted an oversized instrument to add to my collection and if you don’t trust me that this is an oversized pen just check the specs. It’s a very good pen, not a great pen and I will explain a bit later down why I say this. It’s beautifully presented by appelboom, ready to be gifted or enjoyed for yourself. The nib is a regular 6 size nib, it writes very well out of the box. So far no troubles skipping or becoming dry. It’s a large pen, not super huge, but nonetheless large even for my 8 glove-size hands. The few things that made me say that it is not a great pen are the small things such as : the cap feels somewhat fragile and easily breakable upon falling , it takes 3 and a half complete turns to screw/unscrew, the nib is not as wet as I hoped and it feels a bit scratchy. But all that doesn’t make me rate it less than five stars. All in all I highly recommend this pen.

    This pen is a serious step up for me. I really love the pen, and I love the broad nib. I can feel the paper as I write, but in a ver pleasant way. I think the ink flow / shut off mechanism is fascinating. The pen is quite big, and I like that very much. I find the design and the feel of it fascinating. I certainly would recommend this pen to others, and I will consider getting one more myself.
