China marker v. Sharpie

Average: 4 (1 vote)

Marks almost as well as a Sharpie.
Long lasting.
Sharpies come with a cap. This is more like a pencil thus it has no cap. It will break or leave a mark if you put in a pocket or on your hand so that is something to be aware of. It is not so super easy to then sharpen or unwrap.

Great for marking boxes or writing notes/labels. Potentially could smudge.
