Stainless Steel Sharpie
By James Grahame
At just over $10, the stainless steel Sharpie costs about five times what you'd pay for a regular one. However, that extra cash scores you a surprisingly pretentious stainless steel design with a laser-etched Sharpie logo. The ink cartridge is replaceable, although the refill inexplicably costs almost as much as the pen itself.
Apart from that, it's pretty standard stuff: a fine point tip for tagging decorating almost anything, and non toxic ink just in case you feel like doodling on an incapacitated friend's tongue.
The Sharpie has been around since 1964. It was available in black until 1979, when a kaleidoscope of additional colors opened up a new world of bathroom stall sketching possibilities.
