Pros: nice dye based inks that last forever and aren't too drippy if you don't want them to be. If you want to make a mess press down on that nib and you'll get drippy.
They seem to be able to take a beating since I rode over my silver one with my bike after I dropped it in the street and it is only dented- still usable! You can abuse the nibs and they work pretty well. I get a bit aggressive with mine at times so that's a good attribute to a pen in my book.
Cons: Replacement nibs??? I guess you have to get creative about it since they don't make them. I reeeally like the Cyan colored one but I'm messy with them so I have to be careful. I had an accident with a red one this last summer...and uhhh yeah be cautious when you take the cap off (don't twist it at all) so you don't take the entire LID off and spill the entire contents all over yourself. I'm not sure if that's a con for everyone else but I thought I'd let you all know that if you get this ink on anything it's NEVER coming off. They are messy and the ink is sticky and doesn't wash off as easily as say Ironlak paint or the Molotow paint pens.
I HIGHLY recommend using a piece of electric tape (I think AP does when they ship them) and putting it around the part that holds the lid on under the cap so you don't have any accidents. Leave the tape there for the entire life of your K 71.

I got the ceramic blue one back in September at AP when I was visiting some friends in Seattle. I had a lot of fun with it and the flow is really nice and stays pretty even which was a plus. The coverage and pigment is awesome.
Out of all the paint pens I've tried this one is definitely worth the few extra dollars you might pay compared to other brands of paint pens I've used. I'm curious to see how it stands up to buffing since it's actual paint and not a dye based ink.
The con- I'm a mess when it comes to paint pens no matter what I can't keep it off my hands. This pen doesn't leak or anything and is probably the cleanest paint pen I've tried. If size matters and you need to be ultra sneaky get the pocket or mini one because these are bigger than the Krink K 71's.
Buy this pen and use it and love it, it wants to be used by you.
