For those of you who know me, I’m a pen geek. I love the feel of a good writing implement. As a result, I was really excited to hear about the new Sharpie Liquid Pencil.
The experience was disappointing. It reminded me of writing with an EraserMate pen from my middle school days. Sharpie did do something better, as a leftie, the EraserMate ink used to get all over my hand as I wrote; I didn’t experience this with the SLP.
There appears to be an uneven flow of liquid graphite, it sometimes feels like you are writing with a pen which is about to run out of ink. The ink rubs off page with a very light touch, which is good for the eraser, but bad for me since I’m a leftie.
This is the first product from Sharpie which I didn’t like writing with.
