knockoff pens vs real pens

I Bought Pens From Wish…

Would I do it again?

Art pens

I was pretty excited to find a listing for Sakura Pigma Micron Pens on a web site called Wish. I saw the price was only $4 for a set of 8 pens and my disbelief bell rang. I decided that $4 was a low enough price to gamble and so I took the chance.

It was a gamble that didn’t turn out well. As you can see in the video below I didn’t receive Micron pens. What I got was a set of 8 Qinbo Needledrawing Pens. They are exactly the same size barrel and tip. The printing on the barrel easily rubs off.

After testing the ink for water resistance I have decided that the ink is not the same as the Micron Ink. The video below shows the whole test and my reactions to the pens. Check it out and let me know what you think!

Check out the video that I did the comparison testing in.

    I wish that I’d seen this before I ordered them from Wish. Blatantly advertised as Pigma Micron pens and li and behold, Quinbo Needledrawing-pen(?).
    I won’t be making the same mistake twice!!
