Abstract

A hand-held writing device is provided that includes a writing implement, such as a pen, pencil, stylus, or marker, and a deformable grip that envelops a section of the barrel of the writing implement. The deformable grip forms an air gap between the grip and the barrel of the writing implement. The deformable grip includes a viscoelastic polymer that does not spontaneously deform at room temperature and that, when deformed, recovers its initial shape at room temperature in 5 seconds or greater. Also provided is a method of making the same.
