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 like the Omar pen because I enjoy its beautiful material, and I enjoy looking at it and I enjoy writing with it. This time I chose a 1.5 stub nib and it writes beautifully.

    The Opus 88 Omar is the heftiest pen I own. Holds an astounding amount of ink and offers a Japanese-style eyedropper shutoff system for much cheaper than you will find in most equivalent pens.

    Despite its size, the girth and curvature of the pen actually makes it quite ergonomic, but your mileage (and hand size!) may vary.

    Beautiful design on the cap. I only wish the whole pen carried the same aesthetic as it is almost impossible to cap this pen securely or comfortably and looks quite boring in the hand without its cap.
