Sharpie's biggest marker is the best there is Jul 07, 2011
If you want a big marker, you have found it. The tip is huge and this marker is for blacking out large areas or writing large signs with big letters. The marker lasts a long time and comes out really black and stays that way. The marker stinks when you use it, but I like the fume and I'm probably a bit high as I write this review. Psychedelic man! I don't know what the other reviewer is complaining about as I have never had a leak or spill and I've used at least 10 Sharpie magnums. If you don't want this marker on your shoe, then don't put it on your shoe. Duh? It goes where you put it. For my money, this is the greatest oversize marker on the planet and I know you will agree!

Other markers cannot compare. This one is exceptional. Aug 30, 2011
By David Diamond
I needed to darken the black, artistic skating figures circles* on a wood, roller skating rink floor. The circles had been worn off, with only a faint, gray line remaining. This marker did a perfect job, and made the job easier, quicker, darker and more uniform than any other makers that I had tried (including other wide Sharpies). The chisel tip is 5/8" long, and is wide with beveled edges. It produces a strong and even ink flow. The result is a smooth, one pass application. In the open rink, I did not perceive any fumes, unless I got my face directly over the marker. Note that the ink is xylene-free (see the Customer Discussions section at the bottom of the Sharpie Magnum Black Ink Permanent Marker(44101) product description page for information about xylene hazards).
The end of the chisel tip serves as a thinner chisel tip for touch-up work. The ink flow from the end of the chisel tip is as strong and dark as from the long edge.
The ink is a strong die, covering anything that was on the floor: bare chipped wood, nails, glossy roll-on covered wood, red roller derby lines, and things permanently stuck to the floor. Unlike other markers that I had tried, overlapping lines blend perfectly, rather than streaking at the edges.
I have not used it on carton labels yet, but I am confident that it will easily and quickly cover bar codes and addresses on old labels.
The packaging also claims that this marker will work on wet or oily surfaces. If I get a chance to test that claim, I will post the results.
*For the curious, who might not know what figures circles are: The same type of figure ice skating that you see on TV -- freestyle with jumps and spins, and freedance couples skate-dancing -- is also done on roller skates. The figure circles and loop patterns painted on the roller rink floor are used for artistic skaters to develop their precision footwork. These figure patterns are used both for practice and competition.
This is good for marking out addresses Dec 19, 2012
"Listening at all different times of the day"
I use this to mark out my address on mailed items before throwing them away, it covers good and is not as messy as you may think.
HUGE markers Aug 29, 2012
I bought these markers to help organize our move. I was able to write large print and not have to trace back over the lines to make them visible. It made the move easier to organize and we were able to unpack the correct boxes in the correct rooms. Nothing like pulling out pots and pans in the master bathroom. Great help!
Cool sharpie. Jul 15, 2012
Its huge... its black... writes like a sharpie.. not much to say about it. It pretty permanent, but, it could be easily buffed with rubbing alcohol. (For all you graffiti writers out there, get a real marker.)
