Opus 88 Opera Fountain Pen Diamond Cut Dot Grey OP86097

Zoom Opus 88 Opera Fountain Pen Diamond Cut Dot Grey Opus 88 Opera Fountain Pen Diamond Cut Dot Grey

To fountain pen geeks, the words "Made in Taiwan" are coming to mean "Expect something special and unusual". And fountain pen geeks like unusual. Opus 88 have been manufacturing on behalf of other companies since 1988, but now they're designing and making their own pens, aiming them quite firmly at those of us who love fountain pens, and want something a bit different.

The Opus 88 Opera is a new addition to the Opus 88 offering. It is however, very different to the other Opus 88 pens. The Opera has a metal cap with a beautiful engraved pattern, making this pen something really special. Featuring a stainless steel nib and semi-translucent body, so you can see what your ink level is. Lacquered cap to match the colour of the barrel with silver-coloured accents. Opus 88’s lacquering technique is very unique, it involves repeating the lacquering and polishing procedure over 30 times to get the right effect!

While the filling system used by these pens is not something new - far from it - it's rare in modern pens. They may look at first as if they're piston fillers, or perhaps vacuum fillers, but these are actually eyedropper pens. More specifically, they're of a type often known as 'Japanese Eyedroppers' (though these aren't Japanese). They don't draw ink up into the barrel themselves, you need to use an eyedropper (or syringe if you prefer) to get ink from the bottle to the pen barrel.

In use, you just need to unscrew the valve a little before you start a longer writing session, and tighten it back up for safety when you're done. And if you just need to make a quick note, the ink that's already in the feed should be plenty, so it doesn't slow you down.

Supplied in a gift box, with a glass eyedropper.
