Archival Marking Pens?

I think I'd like to mark my work using a pen.  What type and thickness to you recommend?

There are these type with a sort-of brush pen.  Watch the video, it's cool.

Then there are the more typical pen points.  What thickness do you use on your work?  Thanks all!.

I bought these a couple years ago.  Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login or Register
I use the .5 to .8 most of the time to sign.  The smaller tips work but are more fragile.  Remember these pens are made for paper not wood.

We use the Faber -Castell Pitt artist pens for signing our pieces .5mm. These are the same pens we use for our basket illusion pieces. Thumbs Up Thumbs Up

Been using the PIGMA MICRON pens for years. Tried most of the sizes and the brush tip also.  Size of signing/marking is 1/4" to 3/8" "tall".  The .08 size is all I use now.
