Your Ironlak Strikers Twin Marker comes to you all the way from Australia. This refillable marker offers smooth ink application from its broad and fine points. Its uniquely designed air-tight caps help keep this marker from drying out. The triangular barrel will keep this one from rolling away – but we doubt you’ll be putting it down anytime soon!

Kuretake Metallic Brush Pen

Staff Favorite We fell for the Kuretake Metallic Brush Pen at first stroke. This Japanese import handles like a paintbrush and delivers a metallic mark with a subtle shimmer. Use it to add highlights, or rely on it for rich color throughout your piece.

Faber-Castell 9000 Jumbo Pencil

This oversized Faber-Castell 9000 Jumbo Pencil is comfortable to handle, thanks to its thick barrel. Notice how smoothly it lays down graphite; it’s designed to be extra break-resistant. The water-based varnish makes this a good environmental choice, too. 

Le Plume Permanent Brush Pen

“Plume” is French for “feather,” and the name suits this soft, delicate Le Plume Permanent Brush Pen. Use a soft touch for a finer application; a firm touch will lay down more color. The brand, Marvy Uchida, produces this pen in a staggering 144 colors!

Koi Coloring Brush Pen by Sakura

The first thing you’ll notice as you try out the Koi Coloring Brush Pen by Sakura is the unique handling of the tip. It offers the softness of a brush pen combined with the firmness of a marker tip. Use your new pen for outlining, coloring, or both. This versatile tool will quickly become a go-to for your ink projects!
