Why does the world need an indestructible marker? We're not sure. Maybe you get an uncontrollable urge to crush your Sharpies with a hammer every time you get stressed. Maybe you use them to vandalize bathrooms in the middle of an active warzone. Or maybe you live in a radioactive lab where regular plastic markers melt within five minutes of exposure. Whatever the case, the Pocket Shark is putting itself out there as the only indestructible marker you need.
Made by Cold Steel, the tactical marker can be dropped from high places, smashed with a hammer, and run over with a car without incurring a dent, ensuring it can survive any situation you put it through. Yeah, it probably solves a problem that doesn't even exist, but no one cares -- if it's rugged, it's awesome, and that's the way it should be.
The Pocket Shark is constructed from high-impact plastic, with a body four times thicker than regular markers you can buy off the counter at the mini-mart. It measures 6.5 inches long and 0.875 inches in diameter, so it can still square away in your bag pouch, backpocket, and maybe even the Grip Clips on your glasses. The screw cap is also designed to hold fast, ensuring it doesn't pop off while you go about your day the way those on regular markers do. It comes with a fine felt tip and black ink.
Thinkgeek has the Pocket Shark Tactical Marker available now, priced at $7.99.
