TM 2 (Tactical Marker 2.0) is available in four alloy options: Copper, Brass, galactic grade Aluminum (top that, "aircraft grade" fans) and a very limited quantity in Titanium (titanium added 08/16/2018).

TM 2 includes a Sharpie Fine Point Marker, in your choice of Blue, Black or Red ink. 

TM 2 uses a twist-cap with durable O-Rings to keep the ink from drying out and to keep moisture out!

TM 2 features a post-able cap so you can store the cap on back of pen when writing.

TM 2 cap and barrel have knurled surfaces for easy grip and writing.

TM 2 Sharpie secures into the barrel with a mid-barrel shoulder lock. The Sharpie will never fall out! 

TM 2 features a generous clip that will accommodate a carabiner or any pocket or bag carry. The clip is secured to the cap with a Stainless Steel screw.

The TM 2 is so tough, you can drive over it (complete drive-over in video)!

TM 2 dimensions:  

  • Length (capped):   5.78"  
  • Diameter:   .620"  
  • Weight (with cap):  Aluminum: ~1.6 oz., Brass: ~4.2 oz., Copper: ~4.2 oz

 TM 2 is a perfect EDC marker!

The TM 2 Sharpie Fine Point Marker is AP certified by the The Art and Creative Materials Institute, Inc. (ACMI)!

Some may remember and have backed my original Tactical Marker project back in 2015. Incredibly, Sharpie discontinued the specific Sharpie refill that pen was designed around. The new TM 2 was designed around the ubiquitous and classic Sharpie Fine Point marker tool!

Risks and challenges

The 'TM 2' will be locally made, in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

I have delivered several other successful projects including the Aluminum/Titanium Spike + Bar, https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/179537728/spike-bar.

I also have a another shop ready to help produce the 'TM 2' in case I get hit by a bus.
