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.

This is my second Opus 88 pen. Once again pretty much happy with this one. Took away one star because the 1.5 stub nib is a bit too big for me but isn’t the pens fault. Just my cho... view moreice. Wish there would have been a 1.1 stub. My Opus 88 Bela is a broad so didn’t want to duplicate the nib size but difference between their broad and 1.5 stub is huge. Have to say though, both nibs are buttery smooth. view less
