The best drawing pen ever

Is not marketed as a drawing pen at all!

  • A felt-tip style point. Very controllable.
  • Doesn't bleed. At all.
  • It's not like most CD markers, which are just like narrow permanent markers. I think this must be a pigment marker.
  • Really black and opaque.
  • Doesn't fade
  • Waterproof
  • Is not expensive.
  • Most important - writes over tippex without smudging - doesn't even get paler if you use a rubber to get rid of pencil lines.
  • If you allow it to get warm (say, by lying in the sun, or on a switched on light box) it will dry up permanently.
  • Ditto if you leave the lid off, even for a tiny length of time.
  • There are only two thicknesses: 0.75mm and 1mm - and it's the narrowest millimetre I've ever measured.
