Default Anyone Familiar With These ?

I was searching Ebay and other online sites, hoping to make a decision on what type of marker/medium to collect. ( I have almost all of the Spectrum Noirs - love them, but would like to add more ....)
Love Tombows, but have also seen alot of cards that have been made / colored with Touch Twin Brush markers. I like the colors and the overall look of the finished product. So, in my search I found these:

Wholesale Newest touchliit Set of 168 colors TOUCH THREE Marker Pens with gift bag mix colorful, Free shipping, $0.68-0.8/Piece | DHgate

Has anyone heard , used , or stumbled on these ?
They look so similar to the Touch Twins and Noirs - just not sure if they are a bad generic 'offspring' or not ...
TIA

I think those are knockoffs. They're definitely not Touch Twins.

They are not Touch Twins. I have a few and they are identical to SN's, down to the "old" SN code, nib, barrel shape and color. I get them from eBay when one of my SN's dry out because I hate that you either need to buy an entire pack or the refill ink. What I did with them was relabel the end with a cut out, colored in label and marked it with SN's code. Since you already have all of the SN's, you won't get any new colors by buying these. You can see that by comparing the SN color chart the number in parentheses) to the Touch 3 options.

I know I may get slammed by SN fans for this.

Chiming in too - those are definitely knockoffs of ShinHan's Touch Twin older-style markers before the redesign.

I have read opinions that SN's are too. I tend to agree.
