Review: Sharpie Retractable Porous Point Pen

I have been a Sharpie fan for as long as I can remember. I LOVE all the different colored markers, and the fact that they come in such a variety of points for different tasks.

We’ve all used the poster/craft markers that come in vibrant colors. BUT now, I’ve had the chance to review the Sharpie Retractable Porous Point Pen in Black. This pen is amazing. It lives up to the Sharpie name, but makes it better.


This Sharpie Retractable Pen writes like a dream. They sent me 2 of these fabulous pens, so I gave one to my husband. He is a foreman at a Tree Trimming service, so he has to fill out a ton of paper work.

ME? I just love to write! I love the way it writes like a pen, yet the tip feels like a marker. With other markers, even if they are fine tip- they dry out extremely easy. If they do this, it makes it really a waste of money, because your buying them to use them a few times before they dry out.

This pen hasn’t dried out and I’ve had it for a month. I love that it has a retractable tip, so it makes it easier to get right to work! I don’t have to worry about a cap- whether it’s going to fit on the top of the pen, or if I’m going to misplace it if it doesn’t.

It has a soft grip, so that I am writing comfortably the entire time. It has quick drying ink, so I don’t have to worry about it smearing together as I write. I love that I can easily flip to the next page without it smearing on the page in front of it.

It has water-resistant, acid-free ink that doesn’t bleed through onto the back of the paper or the next page. I love this! The only reason I disliked the other fine-tipped markers is because they most definitely DID bleed through. This one doesn’t, which is what makes it so perfect!

It is non-refillable, so once it’s gone, it’s gone. BUT most markers aren’t refillable, so this is perfectly fine with me! They aren’t expensive and last quite a while, so it’s perfect quality for an amazing price.

I love that it has a metal clip attached to it. When I’m at my store and need to price stuff, I can just attach this to the pocket of my jeans or my shirt. It’s always there if I need it, and I don’t have to worry that I’m going to forget it in my back pocket!

BUY IT: You can buy this amazing Sharpie Porous Point Pen for only $3.23

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
