The Opus 88 Opera Grey Arrow fountain pen is a new addition to the Opus 88 lineup. Compared to the earlier Opus 88 pens, this pen is upgraded with a metal cap with a stunning engraved pattern. The metal of the cap is lacquered to match the colour of the body of the pen. The metal details on the pen are silver coloured.
The Opus 88 Opera is equipped with eyedropper filling system and a center bar to regulate the ink flow. This is usually only available on high end eyedropper fountain pens. The body of the pen is semi-translucent, so you can clearly see your current ink level.
The pens from the Opus 88 Opera collection feature a stainless steel #6 JoWo nib. The pens can be filled with the included eyedropper.
