Friend rounded these up from Chinatown Buenos Aires for me.
Sleek little number, all black with white accents, bilingual Spanish-English text. Edding makes great quality markers. This is a 3mm bullet tip that makes nice consistent dark lines with no bleed. I’d have a box of these lying around for general studio use.
Dollar store Chinatown marker. Similar silhouette as a whole slew of generic dollar store markers originating from China. Flimsy plastic construction, grey wrap around labeling. This is a chisel tip, which is something you don’t see too often in Chinatown Dollar store. Most markers like this are a bullet tip. Better than average performance. Usually dollar store markers have thinner ink and bleed heavily. This has a nice dark ink and minimal bleed. I tend to buy markers like this in bulk, pop the end caps off, cut the inner felt open, and use it to create light ink cloud effects, similar to smudging.
Dollar store Chinatown marker. Similar silhouette as above, with different end cap. Sturdier plastic construction with wrap around labeling. Nice logo of a hawk on a backdrop of a globe. Chisel tip. Nice dark ink quality, no bleed. Really good quality marker for a Dollar store find.
TRATTO CHISEL TIP
Quite happy to have this in the collection. Rounded-square shape, similar to Copics, but in a scale and size that is unique in the marketplace. Sleek black finish with sticker label. Would have been nice to see the label details screened on. Top cap has edging that makes the lid come off easier. Makes super smooth lines with no bleed and really nice dark ink characteristics. Italian or Spanish company. Marcatore/Marker label translation. Color code is Nero Black. Always good to have international markers to add to the archives.
This is a jumbo 12mm angled chisel tip. Sturdy plastic construction. I’ve seen this silhouette before in another marker brand. Made in Korea. Firm felt nib, heavy ink quality, applies smooth with no bleed. A great quality marker.
