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.

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.

M55. Zig Calligraphy Pen Water-based Ink
Specify size and color. 1mm, 2mm, 3mm. Black, Red, Green, Blue.

These markers from Zig come in three sizes, including the very useful 1mm. PC-110, PC-210, PC-310.

Kate Wolff finds the felt tip to be harder/stiffer than other markers, which means they give crisper letters and won't mush up as fast as some markers.

"I have been using the ZIG markers which you sent, and they work very well indeed! I even passed them around in my calligraphy courses to get the reaction from students, both beginners and experienced old hands at the matter. All found them terrific."
