Sharpie Pen – Fine Point

Just about everyone is familiar with the Sharpie brand, one of the down falls of the markers that Sharpie produces is that they almost always bleed! I have even seen someone write with one and have permanent stains on their desk! Ya that bad. But still Sharpie is a ever growing and loved company and many people own at least one. This particular Sharpie, the Sharpie Pen, is a pen type marker which writes very smoothly and is a comfortable pen to grip. I find this pen to be unique in that it has a plastic like tip and actually feels like a very finely tipped marker when writing. another another unique feature that I love about this Sharpie is that it does NOT bleed through paper, when I bought this pen I thought that because of how all of the Sharpies I have ever used bleed through this one must also be a “bleeder.” Nope! this marker/pen to my extreme delight does not bleed! I also am very happy that the pen comes in such a variety of colors; Black,

blue, red, green, purple, and orange. Along with colors comes the choice of “click or cap” this pen comes in both forms. The click version of this pen is a great option although i found it to be a bit more on the pricey. This being said I will recommend this pen to anyone who has a use for a pen and or likes the brand and stile that is Sharpie.

Pentel RSVP Ball Point – fine

The Pentel RSVP is a very well known pen. I love it because one it has a very unique and comfortable grip, two it has a nice over all look and design, three it glides very smoothly on paper, and four it comes in numerous colors such as black, blue, red, orange, and my personal favorite – Purple! This pen is always around in the house because it happens to be my mothers favorite pen. One and possibly the only flaw that I see in this pen is that the ink tends to clump and so some spots may be thicker and or darker than others, and although this happens with most ball points the clumping feature tends to be frustrating. I recommend this pen, especially the purple color, to any one who enjoys writing with a ball point pen. Also this pen is good for students because it is not to pricey. I will furthermore recommend this pen to business people because it comes in the colors blue and black. The pentel rsvp is also good for left handed folks because of its fast drying habits.
