High-quality Japanese brush and chisel nibs - the brush nibs are designed to be flexible, yet sturdy enough not to fray. These flexible tips provide paint-brush like strokes and a varied line weight for a wide array of uses.
Alcohol based ink is permanent and quick drying.
Nibs are replaceable. These high-quality Japanese nibs are designed to be flexible and not fray, but we have all left the caps off our markers or used them where we shouldn't. Well... there is no need to throw the marker away - simply replace the nib!
The marker has a round barrel, but the cap has clever notches to prevent rolling on your work surface! In addition these caps are very close to color correct, so just by looking at the cap color you have a very good idea what color is in that marker!
Sketchmarker has a continuous inking system for beautiful, sharp color and smooth nib movement on both large and small images from the beginning to the end of the stroke. Controllable flexibility and mobility of the soft nib from the tip to the full bend. This gives the artist accurate control of color from the first touch to the paper. The Sketchmarker nib maintains even ink flow and saturation without drips or blobs when coloring.
Japanese alcohol ink in 400 colors, with more to come! This innovative ink formula blends smoothly, with the shades of the markers forming smooth transitions, it provides opportunities to create your own new shades, creating large-scale opportunities to convey the depth and tone of color.
Refills are available in large 20ml size. This ink volume is sufficient to refill a marker 10 to 12 times. This means we throw 10-12 less markers in the landfills for each marker and refill purchased!

DISCLAIMER: Everyone sees color differently - this chart was created by eye and not machine. Some colors are very close matches and not exact - so close that I felt that if you have a Copic in that same color it is not a marker color I would add to my collection.
