I hate using regular pencils. I hate the way they feel, the way they sound when the lead is hitting the paper, to me using a regular no. 2 pencil is like nails scratching a chalk board. I’m not even fond of quite a few of the mechanical pencil makers either. Ok, so call me a pencil snob, I can take it, ‘cause I know it’s true.
Sharpie realized that there are others out there just like me. They also were smart enough to get this out just in time for back to school and regular schedules. On the top of school supplies list is the classic No. 2 pencil. I know, that my husband doesn’t like regular pencils either so I’m sure that as soon as our children can hold a regular thickness pencil we’ll be buying them something like this, but who knows what else will be out in about five years?
Sharpie’s Liquid Pencil just glides across the paper with it’s cutting-edge technology liquid graphite. There is no sound to make me cringe and my hands feel comfortable using the pencil. I also don’t have the urge to drive my nails into the pencil sides. I used to take out my discomfort out on my pencils by dragging my nails along the side digging them into the wood.
The liquid pencil writes like a pen, it can be erased for up to three days and then becomes permanent like a pen. No more smudging with age or breaking your lead and losing half of it.
