M82. Sakura Pigma Calligrapher
Sakura Pigma Calligrapher.

Pigmented, lightfast, Chisel Markers. For especially crisp letters, the sides of the tip are reinforced so the nib stays sharp for the life of the marker.

Pigma Calligrapher’s special plastic nib performs similar to a metal dip pen. Get different effects by applying different degrees of pressure. Nib lasts longer than conventional fiber tip nibs on disposable calligraphy pens. Available in 3 point sizes (including the popular 1mm size) in 6 different colors.

Sizes: 1mm, 2mm, 3mm.

Colors: Black, Royal Blue, Red, Sepia, Purple, Hunter Green.

$3.49 each 6 or more assorted $3.14 each.

Sakura Pigma Calligrapher Markers are different from regular chisel edge markers. With Sakura Calligrapher Markers, the ink flows through two fairly stiff plastic plates to reach the paper. For this reason, it is important that you have the entire tip on the paper and apply more or less equal pressure across the entire width of the writing edge of the nib. (These stiff plastic plates are what keeps the tip crisp though the life of the marker.) With regular chisel markers, the ink will flow from any surface of the marker. With these Sakura chisel markers you can’t get sloppy with nib position to the paper or you will get a one-sided ragged stroke, or not a fully inked stroke. You may have to slow down, find the “sweet spot” and write more carefully.
