Krink K-71 Broad Line Marker
by MEANS -Read all my Reviews Friday April 18, 2014
I bought this marker in SILVER a couple months back. I was putting together a big order on here, and I stopped by a local art store that had the full run of colors in stock, so I got to test them all out before buying...the silver, bleed thru red, bleed thru blue, and magenta are the nicest colors for sure. I ended up going with the classic silver and here's what I have to say about it after 2 months of use...first of all, note that this is not the original Krink formula, so for those of you looking to buy one of these based on that alone, don't. These are alcohol-based, the original Krink is petroleum distillate based and considerably harder staining than this. That being said, I still love this marker. I'll start with the bad, then move on to the good...CONS: 1.) Comes about half full...for a $10 marker, it should come at least 85% full, no excuse for that really. 2.) Has been known to get streaky on smooth, glossy surfaces like windows, but mostly just during the initial break-in period for the nib. 3.) The cap has popped off in my pocket and caused a mess several times...the #1 thing they could do to improve this product is MAKE A DAMN SCREW-ON CAP!...Now onto the PROS: 1.) At first I was kinda pissed with the nib..Once it's broken in, it writes 3x better than it did when I first got it, I love it now. It widens out and softens up a lot, the lines are thicker, smoother, and more to anybody complaining about streaky tags with this, just keep using it, get some wear and tear on the nib, and juice it up well before you use it. 2. Replaceable nibs, easily refillable, durable aluminum body. 3.) When I had about 20% of the silver ink left, I decided to fill it up the rest of the way with Money Shot ink and see what happens. I didn't even change the nib. Flowed great, was more opaque, and much harder staining, too. It still wrote silver (actually a better, darker silver that was more visible in sunlight) until it was totally empty. Then I got a fresh nib and put in fresh ink. this thing works well with pretty much whatever ink you want to put in it. Bottom line, it's worth 10 bucks for a nice, durable, refillable marker with a metal body and replaceable nib.
