MORE SHANGHAI AND HK PICKUPS
More markers from Shanghai and HK.
LINEPLUS POWER 2400 – It has the same look of an Artline metal jacket, except it is made from plastic. I like the criss-cross line detail on the bottom, and the vertical layout. It’s a bullet point but the line thickness is pretty thin. It’s an okay marker.
PERMA 3535 – A cheap quality black marker. Dried out when I bought it.
KORES – Another cheap quality marker. The chisel tip is already soft and piling at the top, and the ink is drying up quite quickly. It has these style green red and blue style lines on the label reminiscent of the Artline wave motif.
PERMA 4305B –It seems pretty well crafted. There is this pump action thing going on in the back that is supposed to infuse the well with more ink. Wow. That feature actually works. This is a really good marker, which is surprising because the smaller version was actually really bad.
CARTON MARKER – A well made good quality marker.
SHUI SENG – I thought I got this one in Shanghai but I didn’t. It’s a metal jacket Artline style knock off that I picked up in NY Chinatown. It works quite well, if a little stiff.
MW 998 – I didn’t get this one in Shanghai either. It’s from Chinatown in Toronto. Looks quite cheap due to the plastic wrap around labeling, but it really isn’t that bad. Nice chisel tip, writes well.
ARTLINE 400XF PAINT MARKER – Classic Artline metal jacket shape. I don’t remember the shop I got it from, but their phone number is 2865 1993. I’m sure it works pretty good. If not, I am going to crank call those guys.
