Krink K-72 Water Base Permanent Ink Marker by (BlackBookCrooks) - A Top 100 Reviewer! 03/30/2015
Krink K-72 Water Base Permanent Ink Marker *ADDENDUM: Due to both the somewhat high cost Yet extreme ease of refill, it's dumb not to buy any of these without buying extra nibs.

Krink K-72 Water Base Permanent Ink Marker by Anonymous - A Top 100 Reviewer! 03/30/2015
Krink K-72 Water Base Permanent Ink Marker We all know Krink costs a grip (just buy Nibs) But I have to tend to agree w/ some (many?) that the water-based ink in these could DEF be better: I think KR's company has been making more water-based markers to get his products into more chain-stores, just like Molotow & Montana have managed to do in HobbyLobby & Michaels w/ their water-based markers being stocked on shelves throughout the stores!

The One thing that cannot be denied is that the Bodies (valves, nibs, etc) or the k71, 73, & Especially this smaller 72 are all great! Like writing w/ a valve-based chisel-tip OTR OO6.
I'm all about the smaller size: the key is just to fill it w/ what u want if u don't like its water-based guts... It's ALL elementary at this point.

- Buy a Black k72 & fill with SpeedFlow & Love it!
- Buy a Red k72 (Red's been the easiest to empty/rinse imo), empty, rinse, & fill w/ Pilot Red or Black (add a pinch of stainer if u got it).
- Buy red, rinse it thorough, & fill it w/ Prisma's Xylene Silver! (I heard silver xylene markers are free, but don't quote me.)


Hard to rate a costly marker w/ ink I don't like, but the entire build of this small pocket (or backpack stash-pocket) friendly marker is too nice to give it just a 3)... & God Knows Krink will Never sell empties, so I gotta go w/ 4/5

Unipaint Broad by m - A Top 100 Reviewer! 08/26/2012
Unipaint Broad Have only tried silver but it's a good opaque valve marker w/ beautiful oil-based silver! (I might be biased because the k71/Uni/SmashKO nib-style is one of my fav's for smaller valve markers).
They do come around 1/3 to 1/2 full, but i quickly found my remedy for this at Micheals & HobbyLobby- just grab 3 or more of their silver xylene-based valve markers that they sell as singles (like silver Prismas or Treehouses) & dump them into the Uni. Will increase odor, but doing this on top of adding a tiny amount of appropriate thinner will make them run smoother & add drip potential, while still keeping the silver looking opaque & just as fresh imo. Never had any inconsistent color/opacity with this mix from my experience. (I have yet to try running gk through one of these, so cannot comment on that.)
The nib can kinda gum up after it's been juiced then not used for a while, but this is remedied by soaking the nib in xylene or paint thinner for a while... But I always recommend just throwing on a fresh nib!
*Anytime you EVER buy a Uni Broad, SmashKO, or K71/72/73, you should ALWAYS buy extra nibs! The bodies will outlast the nibs atleast 90% of the time & they are all easily refilled.

Smash KO Marker by M - A Top 100 Reviewer! 06/10/2012
Smash KO Marker I love these markers!
I just wanted to say that refilling them was really easy, which i wouldnt have thought after seeing all the refill-related questions...
Just wedge it so it'll stand upright, use a screw with wide enough thread crests to poke the pin down, & slowly drip your refill of choice into the neck (i use either eye-dropper bottles w/ widened holes or a pipette to drip the refill in).

Now dont get me wrong, the stock ink formula is amazing, but for my application needs, ive found adding the same-color alcohol-based dye ink to the purple, black, & red markers, after using 1/3 to 1/2 of the stock ink, made the formula thinner & run easier through the valve & nib (although this may affect opacity).

Garvey XT-70 Violet Ink by M - A Top 100 Reviewer! 06/03/2012
Garvey XT-70 Violet Ink Very versatile (like many dye-based inks). Thin enough to be used in any mop/marker. Maybe a bit too thin to be in my first round draft pick for a k66-style marker, but still possible with a fast hand & the urge for a ridiculous amount of drip. & while it is thin, it def isnt the thinnest in the dye category (heavier pigments maybe?). Has great opacity for a non-black dye! Hardcore stainer on anything the least bit porous. Drips sometimes do the "dye-wiggle" on certain surfaces. The color is sexier than kisses from daddy... I wish mommy had married Mr. Garvey instead :\

Smash KO Marker by Markus - A Top 100 Reviewer! 09/27/2011
Smash KO Marker Props to Smash & 'Primo, but im not gonna waste time stating all the positive aspects of this marker that have already been mentioned.
I had been writing using a Krink Red Bleed-thru marker filled WITH an ENTIRE additional dime-bag of Red bleed-thru additive & no matter how thick i put the Krink down, their bucket paint could cover it eventually! (ie. no visible bleed after multiple layers)! BUT when i hit the wall with a Red SmashKO, they are STILL putting layers of bucket paint over it & are at Atleast 6 coats deep!! (note: when i came by to see how it was doing, they had one big bucket of white Behr & a quart bucket of Rusto in the same white, so it seems they were trying both to try to cover the SmashKO).

(Just gotta say that it would be a Goddam Shame if you didnt make a time-lapsed video showing the bleeding powers of Red SmashKO... especially vs. Krink's Bleed-thru Red!)
Since most powers-in-charge around here use bucket paint (not spray-paint) to cover tags, Red KO's bleed far superior to Krink's Red Bleed-thru! (again, in terms of bucket paint: i havent compared using spray paint yet).
