Care Information

1. Do not allow ink to dry out in the nib, as this will reduce and eventually stop the flow of ink.
2. Wash the nib occasionally after use as follows: Remove the ink cartridge then hold the nib under lukewarm running water. Dry it carefully with paper tissue.
3. Do not drop or knock your pen against a hard surface. To avoid accidental damage, replace the cap after use.

Description

The Opus 88 Fantasia fountain pen is built for fun - both in design and performance! The pen has an attractive variety of colored rings on its unique ebonite cap that pairs nicely with a translucent resin barrel. The Opus 88 Fantasia is equipped with eyedropper filling system and center bar to regulate the ink flow. This is usually only available on high end eyedropper fountain pens. The top of the cap can be used as a tool unscrew the ebonite piston knob for operation. This pocket pen is currently the smallest pen in the line up of Opus 88. The Fantasia features chrome details and a stainless steel nib. The pen can be filled with the included eyedropper and holds 2ml of ink. Masterfully engineered to serve both form and function, Opus 88 pens transcend mere communication to reflect the artistry that is the written word. For over two decades, founder Michael Hsu has personally and painstakingly crafted each pen to exacting standards, selectively building his Opus 88 label for discering clientele. Those who recognize the power and beauty of an exquisite writing instrument appreciate his work.
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. So why the piston-like mechanism? It's a valve, to seal off the ink supply just above the nib. Why? Well, for one thing, it makes the pens safer to carry, as only the ink that's already in the feed can leak into the cap if it gets shaken about. It can also be used to work around a common problem with eyedropper pens. With a lot of ink and air held directly in the barrel, as the heat from your hand warms up an eyedropper pen, they can push a bit of ink out through the feed, onto the page. It's not usually a problem when the pen is full, only when there's air in the barrel, but if it happens to be a problem for you, you can just keep the valve closed, only opening it to allow more ink to the feed as needed. 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.
