The color system
The color system is a bit special. They divided the colors (but only the original colors, not the newer ones) into nine color groups that they call: basic, brilliant, natural, dull, pale, deep, grey colors, cool greys and warm greys. All colors has a number but the number do not hold a big mening like Copic or Winsor&Newtons Brush- and Promarkers, but the first digit gives you a color family. For example all colors that start with the number one is a yellowish color, number two is red colors, number three is blue colors and four is orangey kind of colors and so on. All colors also have names. Some of the names are a bit unusual like the Blood red, Alice blue and English rose, but most names just reflects the color.

They used to have four different choices:
- Zig Kurecolor kc 500 is a single tip marker with a chisel nib
- Zig kurecolor kc1100 that is a twin marker with a chisel nib and a fine nib. The barrel is very thick and holds a lot of ink
- Zig kurecolor kc3000 is the same as the kc1100 but slimmer barrel and holds less ink
- Zig kurecolor CNKC 2200 (came in 2012 and are the only on left) with a brush nib and a fine nib in a long and thin barrel
However in the end of 2017 all stores that used to carry ZIG markers have had them on sale (except for 2200) and on their website they are listed as discounted. So nowadays they only carry one kind: The 2200. But refills for all colors and many different choices of tips are stil available, if not all of them. As you can se in the picture down below, they also use to have fine nib replacement and stickers for Kc3000.
