Tachikama Linemarker A.T. Sketch Pens

Available in Three Nib Sizes and Refillable
Tachikama is a Japanese pen maker very popular with comic / manga artists. ARCH is now carrying the Tachikama Linemarkers available in 3 sizes (01, 03 & 05) with a fountain pen style nib. These pens have great flow and don't drag or scratch the paper despite their super fine nibs.  These would make a great alternative to some of the micron pens as the nibs should last longer and handle all types of drawing paper. They are also refillable.  Come by ARCH and try one out today!
