    Default Opus 88 KOLORO Demonstrator

    Hi all,
    Check out this "little" stick.
    Very well build, light, simple, beautiful, and eyedropper.
    How cool is this guy!

    I swapped the nib with a Jowo XXF, grinded by FPnibs.com
    Ask me questions.

    Me, too. I saw one in the flesh at Vanness Pens, and I would have bought it if they were selling them (theirs were display models only; they hadn't decided whether to carry them yet).

    Oups it's 6, I don't know why I put 5.
    Size 5 it's for the smaller models.

    Nice review and it's a gorgeous pen. How easy is it to clean? Have you noticed staining from the ink?

    How does the workmanship stack up against the smaller independent makers?

    Fabbo! Is the nib friction fit, or is it a whole Jowo screw in unit?

    It takes the screw in unit from Jowo. I just put in one of Pablo’s semi-flex 14k nibs from fpnibs.com and it just screwed in. Make sure you swap the little o-ring at the base of the nib unit as well though.

    Awww, you read my mind, my flex nibs are so thirsty. That would be perfect to feed it for long sessions of bliss!
