||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
