Sakura Markers

The history of Sakura dates back to 1921, when Sakura started as a crayon company and as a supplier of art materials. Sakura produces today a range of permanent markers, metallic paint markers, solid paint stick markers and other writing and stationary materials. The bold markers are not in the product range of the US market but I heard they are sold in the US. In Germany these markers are hard to find, however, one stationery shop in Hamburg had the whole Sakura range. This is where I got mine from, with exception of the Sakura Color Ink Felt Pen.

Sakura Marker SG7 extra broad

The Sakura Marker SG7 Extra Broad is similar with the edding 850. It has a soft and smooth felt nib. Good quality permanent marker.

Sakura Pen-touch E.B. Marker

The Pen Touch E.B. permanent marker still contains toluene/xylene and has a really good ink flow. Similar to the edding 800, the Staedtler markers and the Pilot Super Color Marker Wide&Broad SC-6600.

Sakura Color Ink Felt Pen

A real oldschool marker with glass bottle. Find it long times ago in the early 1990s in a dusty stationery shop on Crete. They had much more of these markers, but I bought only this one… | Ein echter oldschool Marker mit Glasflacon. Hab ich irgenwann in den frühen 1990ern in einem verstaubten Schreibwarenladen auf Kreta gefunden. Es gab noch mehr von diesen Markern dort, leider habe ich bloß diesen einen gekauft…
