Fine Liners – The smallest I can find! 003 and 005

I tend to use the Uni-Pin Fine Line 0.05mm for my artwork. However it’s just that lil bit too big in many cases. Even the smallest difference can add a new depth to the image. As such I wanted to get the 0.03mm pens… however it seems incredibly hard to find any. I first looked at the Copic Fineliner 0.03 but it was unavailable on their store, I also found that the minimum charge of €25 before they will ship to you is a lil annoying. I just want a pen worth a couple euro.

The alternatives I find will be on Ebay as it seems to be the best place to get them. Postage is to Ireland but in many cases eBay sellers will inflate postage to offset the low prices of the pen so I have included the postage for comparison. This is not correct in all cases as you may see free UK postage!
