Today we brought you the famous Deep Hole Marker: Pica-Ink
The Pica-Ink Deep Hole Marker is one of the first and most popular inventions of Pica-Marker. This marker, in fact, has been copied by several brands, several times but non of the copies managed to outdo what the original Deep Hole Marker is capable of.
This Deep Hole Marker, thanks to the thin nib, makes it easy to get close to hard-to-reach places like a deep hole and helps to make a precise marking along a lever or a gauge.
A really common problem with these types of markers is that the nib dries out and you end up throwing away the marker before you would have used up all the ink inside. Pica-Ink is already marking up until 14 hours uncapped but in order to prolong the lifespan of these markers, Pica Germany has invented the removable and turnable nib. Thanks to this feature, when you see that your marker is not marking good anymore you can just do the following:
- Pull back the stainless steel telescopic tip around the fibre nib
- Take out the nib with pincers and turn it 180°
- Insert it back again and move the telescopic tip forward.
With this method, you can immediately use your marker like it is new, while the other side is getting recharged with ink inside the marker. This practice can be performed around 7 times, giving your marker a new life each and every time.
Thanks to another patented feature of this deep hole marker, the marking nib can be extended from 2 mm up until 7 mm by moving the stainless steel telescopic tip backwards. Like this, you can get a 3 times larger marking surface which is really helpful when marking in tight places.
