Whole slew of metal-base markers to add to the collection, courtesy of DIET - HTK.
BEROL LIQUID TIP 1100
Love this. Great stubby shape. SOLID one-piece metal construction. Side labeling screened on. Simple BLACK/WHITE color markings. Sparse details, Just says Berol.LIQUID TIP wordmark, ALL SURFACE MARKER with permanent ink, in a black box, and 1100, product code on side. Classic Berol Liquid Tip grooved black marker cap. Chisel tip. This thing is DOA, but still retains that strong hint of metal-marker aroma that takes me back to grade school.
EBERHARD FABER DESIGN MARKER 229-LF
Another great metal marker from Eberhard Faber. Solid one-piece metal construction. BLACK/WHITE colorblocking on side. Nice DESIGN wordmark. other than that, all other details are quite subtle. Small pt text, with cutouts towards tip leave room to indicate COLOR CODE and COLOR. Pointed nib. DOA. Also still retains that strong hint of metal-marker aroma. Made in USA. A true design classic and drafting table staple.
Marsh is a company with great history. Really happy to have this in the collection. Super heavy-duty metal barrel construction. Bold MARSH stencil wordmark in RED, with black accent lettering, labeling details, and model NO# details. Bullet tip. Ink runs nice and thick, dark black ink. Good coverage. Top notch marker.
RUSTOLEUM AMERICAN ACCENTS PAINT PEN
A heritage brand. Made in USA. Heavyweight metal construction. Sticker marker label has satin finish. Not the most attractive label design. “Decorative Paint Pen” appears all wispy on the side, the Rusto wordmarks appear small and un-prominent. I guess this marker is supposed to appeal to the home improvement sector. Chisel tip. Makes dark black ink lines. Good consistency. I guess I just would like it to look a bit more “old style”
POTTERY BARN TOUCH UP
This thing is lean and mean. Solid metal construction. Black text on white backing. This thing contains a chemical known in the State of California to cause Cancer and Birth Defects. Wish I read that bit before giving it the inhale test. Well, it smells a whole lot of strong. Pretty cool that Pottery Barn makes their own touch-up paint marker. The cancer/birth defect thing…not so cool.
