NEEDS AND WANTS
These aren’t in my collection YET, but I know at least one of them will be soon…too bad its the latter and not the former.
YOKEN SPECIALIST - Worst case scenario in black marker hunting is finding an amazing specimen…that isn’t black. The second addition of the Holy Grail want list…(the first being the El Marko…). This was in a bin of old stock. No blacks, so I took a brown just for a placeholder. Nice metal jacket construction, with a paper label wrap indicating color, gold foil stamped with a model number. The letter-style for SPECIALIST…perfect. Made in…Japan.
ARTLINE STEEL MARKER - The shop that sold this one was closed. Will have to pick it up later. Nice stubby metal jacket Artline construction. I already know i’m getting a quality piece with this eventual pick-up.
