Open Liners are new configurations for artists who need rich lines. We call these liners Open because the individual needles run parallel to the tip and are not compressed there, as with conventional liners. They differ from shaders of the same design by their stiffer needle packages (shorter solder-free length) and more pointed individual needles (longer taper length).
To develop our Open Liners, we defined 5 needle package sizes for 5 different thickness lines and built 172 different configurations to meet these specifications. We tested these 172 different needles with well-known international artist to offer you the best of the best. The result is our Open Liners.
