Sharpie Fine Gold Metallic Permanent Marker by Sharpie
2.0 out of 5 stars Permanent, I think not, 11 Mar 2014
though it does depend I suppose on the surface. On non porous surfaces they are far from permanent, wearing away quickly with minimal use. On porous surfaces they probably are fairly permanent. In the end I wrote what I wanted and covered the writing with clear tape until I can find an actual fine point permanent marker.

I have had this just over a week and it is already broken. I dropped it all of about 600mm (24") on to a slightly cushioned vinyl kitchen floor and the spoon and handle just parted company. Looking at the colour of the break it looks like it is brazed and with such a thin area it would have to be exceptional quality brazing to make this take even capable of taking reasonable handling. After all, glass or china wouldn't necessarily be a surprise if it broke when dropped, even on a slightly cushioned floor like mine, but a smallish metal spoon! Ironically, I have a mug that is not that thick nor is it a specially toughened one that I have lost count of how many times I have dropped it on… Read more
