Felt / Porous Tip Markers
Roller Ball Pens
I use this pen for inking comics pages. It's the best pen I've found for this as it doesn't have a "squishy" tip which allows you to keep pen tip pressure on the page thereby stabilizing your pen line. It is also better than most other "felt tip" type pens as the ink remains black after erasing the pencils. This allows direct inking on the pencil drawings instead of having to ink on a light table. It is similar to the old "ceramicron" technical pens but allows for better line control. One complaint is that the .005 tip tends to dry out quickly, but the .01 through .03 last quite a long time. Highly recommended for comics inking.
Ohto Co., Ltd. is a Japanese pen manufacturer established in 1929. It initially focused on dyes and inks. In 1949, Ohto produced the world's first pencil-shaped ballpoint pen with chrome ball. This was also the first "Made in Japan" ballpoint pen. In 1981, Ohto introduced the world's first ceramic roller ball pen. In 2000, Ohto created its famous single blocked strong needle tip, again, first in the world.
Ohto's ceramic roller ball pen refills are so smooth that many pen lovers use them even in non-Ohto pens. One of our most popular refill lines is the C-305 series which are ceramic roller ball refills in 0.5 mm tip size.
Ohto has many needle-point lines: the Petit-B is a compact portable pen meant to be carried in wallets; the Slim Line is usually stored with
planners/engagement books; the Capstick Cap-Knock line is made to resemble chap sticks.
