Halacha - Tefillin
Submitted by Dovid  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question: I wanted to color the retzuos of my tefillin black and I was wondering if one needed to purchase the "tefillin marker"? Is this marker just a money maker and I would be able to use any black marker, or does one davka need this marker?
Answer:

The Gemorra says that the paint used to color the tefillin must be Kosher to eat. Since it is impossible to know the source of the ingredients in a regular magic marker, it is strongly advisable to use the "tefillin marker". You should remember to speak out loud "lesheim mitzvas tefillin" when using it.
