Milwaukee Tools has recently announced several new Inkzall permanent markers. These markers are designed with clog-resistant tips, indelible ink, and the ability to write on dusty, wet, or oily surfaces.
Milwaukee Inkzall Marker Styles
- Fine point marker (48-22-3100)
- Stylus and fine point marker (48-22-3101)
- 2pk medium point markers (48-22-3102)
- 4pk fine point markers (48-22-3104)
All markers will write with black ink.
Milwaukee has said that the markers were optimized with a proprietary ink that dries quickly to reduce smearing. Additionally, the tips were designed to hold up durably against rough materials such as OSB, concrete, and cinder blocks.
Each marker also features a hard hat clip that could probably also serve as a pocket or belt clip.
Milwaukee is also coming out with a combination fine point black marker and stylus that works on capacitive smartphone and tablet touchscreens.
ETA: February 2014
Pricing: $1.39 for fine point marker, $9.99 for combination stylus marker, $3.99 for medium point 2-pack, $4.99 for fine point 4-pack.

This seems to be a logical extension of Milwaukee’s foray into the construction hand tool market. There’s not much I can comment on just yet, but it will be interesting to see how the new Milwaukee Inkzall markers compare against Sharpie’s industrial and professional markers.
I like how Milwaukee created a combination marker/stylus Inkzall. Unfortunately, the stylus component is built into the combination marker and cannot be removed and transferred to non-stylus replacement fine and medium point markers once the ink runs out.
