Which Nib Size Should I Get For My Opus 88 Fountain Pen?
Choosing the right fountain pen nib can be a tough decision. Our advice for starters is to go with a fine or extra-fine (EF) nib. Opus 88 nibs are a little bigger than other brands like Pilot or Sailor, so we suggest to order an extra-fine Opus 88 nib if you are looking for letter writing size. All Opus 88 pens are #5 size nibs, other than the Opus 88 Demonstrator which is a #5 size fountain pen nib.
Where Are Opus 88 Fountain Pens Made?
Opus 88 fountain pens are made in Taipei, Taiwan.
