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.

Pentel Presto Pen by M - A Top 100 Reviewer! 06/10/2012
Pentel Presto Pen These are fun to have & can be concealed fairly easily: Very opaque white formula. These have a soft, squeezable body which is great for controlling flow while writing, but can make refilling them a b*tch, as the top is often screwed on very tightly: I have not yet been able to refill one of these without leaving some warping on the soft blue body, although this hasnt seemed to have an affect on how they write after refilling. Also, if air gets in thru the nib when the ink starts to run somewhat low, it helps to hold it upright with the pin (nib/tip) pressed down & squeeze the body to release any of the air inside.
I personally switched to the pen-shaped white-outs simply because i prefer writing with that traditional body style.
In my case these have become more of a novelty, but all things considered, you can't beat the price if you are a fan of the k-12, & if you are considering trying a k-12 for the first time, consider starting with one of these to see if the applicator meets your needs (but keep in mind they differ in terms of ink/paint formula: For example, the k-12's paint is thicker).

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).

OTR .401 Soul Tip Paint by M - A Top 100 Reviewer! 06/03/2012
OTR .401 Soul Tip Paint I was really wanting to dig 401 paint at first (thin, inexpensive, decent color selection, straight drips), but grew disappointed with how easily it was getting buffed from both porous & nonporous surfaces, not to mention there are more opaque refills available in great colors that are only slightly thicker (ie. could most likely run through similar applicators). Btwn Smash & the variety of dyes & oil-based inks & paints, i couldnt find a significant reason to keep 401 paint in stock. Still its non-odorous, inexpensive, thin, has color variety, & provides perfect predictable straight-line drips. (Plus i hear the pink is good for tummy aches!)
