I found a Sharpie pen !

Following on from Bob Borson’s Blog post that included his favourite Sharpie Pen, Scott Taylors original blog post ‘All about me’ and finally my blog post All About Me! I eventually found a Sharpie pen – in Easons in Galway (100 mileish round trip):

Sharpie, double ended: Fine Ultra Fine Permanent marker


So what did I think? How does it compare with the European equivalent? Here’s the TopGear track challenge for pens:

1. Thinness:

No comparison the Sharpie UltraFine is at least half the thickness of the Staedtler Fine

2. Ergonomics:

Not much in it but I think the Sharpie has it again, better shape, easier to hold

3. Bleedthrough

Here I tested it on my Moleskine notebook, the Staedtler really shows through on the next page; again the Sharpie is the winner.

So I guess Bob Borson is right, the Sharpie is a gorgeous pen, especially for architects
