This is a nice little, must have marker. I use it for outlining sketches with High Solid or CoversAll. I always have a few of these empties around in case I need to drop some different colors on the fly. Good quality, super reliable and nibs are easily replaceable. TIf necessary, the nib is can be washed with water (acrylic) or denatured alcohol (my solvent of choice for ink).
I always need a good refillable outliner in the arsenal. The AP 4mm Grippy fits the bill perfectly. I keep it full of Signal Black for my frequent blackbook emergencies. It's got a decent ink capacity and nibs are replaceable. Unscrews the OPPOSITE way, kids.
This is an essential starter kit if you want to check out a nice variety of colors in the High Solid line. Super silky smooth paint and effortless valve action keeps these guys within arms reach. Not to mention the nibs are replaceable. I use these primarily for canvas work. I sand down the gessoed canvas with a fine grit to smooth it out and the nibs last MUCH longer. Get some 30ml refills, you'll need 'em. Now I need Kit 2!

This is a good metallic marker from the fine folks at Molotow. I've only used the silver but the other colors look nice for certain applications. 4mm nib, pump action valve and great paint consistency, but I've switched to using the Burner silver instead cause it provides a more even coverage and no weird streaks through the paint. Good for highlights and small areas but doesn't work so well when trying to cover larger areas with solid color.

I'll give this marker another shot but my first impression was not that great. The marker is decent, the nib is good (Uni-style 4-8mm chisel) but the ink was weak as hell. I thought there was something wrong with it and shook it for another 10 minutes, juiced up the nib. Same thing. My Lennox Blewis = transparent Kool-aid with drips. blech. I'm gonna add one to my next order just to be sure. I hope I just got a bad one.
