These guys are the Schnitzel! Personally I couldn't be happier that Artprimo picked these up. I have used the blacks for a few years now and don't leave the house without them. great for hitting a quick spot or just practicing hand styles. these are the closest thing to the Old Magic Markers I had as kid, (before computers.) Heck if your a Bode' fan and want that vintage look to your artwork get a full set of these and Wizard/Broad it up. This company makes quality stuff the nibs hold up for a good bit (as long as you not trying to write on concrete) and you can get replacements if needed. this is a graphic style marker so its not meant to beat any Buff Man. the ink holds up well on street side signs and glass and these are the perfect size for eggshells and the ink does great on them. and if you run out they can be refilled. The Magic ink ?marker is great for a beginner or novice. the price is just right and being able to get all the colours makes it even better, heck if you like them you can pick up refills and never have to buy another.
Big Thanks to Artprimo for getting these if your like me and dont live any where near a Chinatown you know all about paying thru the nose and waiting 2 months to get one of these in the mail. hopefully these will stay around for a while!

I have been using this marker for a bit and i dig it. and it takes a bit of practice to get used to, it can be frustrating at times. The combination of the ink and nib are a lot of fun to experiment with. You can adjust the length of the nib by pulling on it lightly. these really nibs aren't for everybody, Have no fear if you can't get the hang of the nib, its not a loss you can always pick up a Molotow 2-5mm Calligraphy Nib from AP (2 for $2.99) and still use it. the Coversall works great with the 2-5mm Nib also. The Coversall ink in this is super bold for calligraphy and used on black and dark colored papers you get a nice effect. The grip on the Calligrafx is comfortable slightly textured so no slipping. If you have a couple extra dollars to buy something new and you like to experiment then pick this up. This isn't really for Graffiti, if you get the hang of it grab some Eggshell or Postal blanks and go to town.
theses are good little markers for the price. I refilled with the soul tip.401 and haven't run into any big problems. typical pump valve issues. the alcahol and paint separate in the nib whatever side its stored on. just take a second before you go out and prep the marker. as for the cap getting stuck on these guys just take a sec & clean the dried paint out of the cap. plus your just wasting paint by just pumping the s#%t out of them and then putting the cap straight on it. it just pools up in the cap and gets all over the place. take care of your markers and they will take care of you...use a little common sense
