What's Happening @ Soul Built?

Something unexpected that I've received a lot of requests for is to make a Marksmith sized pen, a pen of truly phat proportions. Owners love the size of the Marksmith and want it as a pen also, so we made an insert that converts the MARKSMITH into a pen that is compatible with PARKER G2 style refills. I will be launching a new Kickstarter soon for the pen insert, so if you want to be the first to get one of those, click here to enter your email on the pen insert webstore page to be notified when it is ready.

We're always posting new videos about making, and taking apart, so make sure to subscribe to the Engineerable YT channel.

You can also subscribe to the Marksmith playlist where all new Marksmith videos get posted, and we also add customer and reviewer videos, like these:

Thanks,

Marksmith Black Ti has just LAUNCHED!
about 2 years ago – Sat, Feb 05, 2022 at 09:06:08 AM

And we've already passed the $20k goal!

If you use Marksmith as both a permanent marker and highlighter or want to have 2 different permanent marker colors at hand then Marksmith Black Ti is perfect to allow you to tell the difference between the two colors.

Get your Marksmith Black Ti Super Early Bird special

Now you can tell the difference between your Permanent Marker and Highlighter (or another color)

Backers who pledge within the first 24 hours (at any reward level) will get 2 FREE additional black marker cartridges for a total of 4 cartridges included with your order.


No More Manufacturing Delays This Time

With the original Marksmith Kickstarter, we learned a painful lesson in the manufacturing timeline during a pandemic. Therefore this time we have pre-made enough Marksmith Black Ti's to cover the orders from the Kickstarter campaign. They will start shipping soon after the campaign ends, and you'll get yours quickly.

Backerkit surveys will be sent out right after the campaign ends, and we'll start shipping about 1 month after the end of the campaign.


The Success of the Marksmith Black Ti Campaign Will Help Make the Marksmith Ultra-Fine a Reality

Marksmith Ultra-Fine is the most requested new product. Everybody wants one. 

Since our goal is to deliver quickly on new campaigns, we are starting the manufacturing early.  Additional funds raised from the Marksmith Black Ti Kickstarter campaign will be used to pre-make the Ultra-Fine version before we launch that campaign. That means that the more we raise with the Marksmith Black Ti Kickstarter, the faster we can launch the Ultra-Fine campaign, and ship it quickly after the Ultra-Fine campaign is over.

I have been pocket carrying an Ultra-Fine version (prototype) next to my Fine for over a year and it is awesome!

Marksmith Black Ti Launching Feb 1 @ 9AM EST
about 2 years ago – Tue, Feb 01, 2022 at 12:08:21 AM

Marksmith Black Ti with DLC coating is going to be launching on Kickstarter at 9AM EST on FEB 1st!

Backers who pledge within the first 24 hours (at any reward level) will get 2 FREE additional black marker cartridges for a total of 4 cartridges included with your order.

Make sure to go to this preview page and click on "Notify me on launch" to be notified when the Kickstarter campaign launches.

You'll get to choose between a matte black finish and a satin finish. They look so good, I couldn't choose only one finish, so I decided to make both and let you choose. You'll be able to select the finish in Backerkit.

Premium No-Logo Version

In the original Marksmith Kickstarter, there were no logos on the images, so we decided to leave them out for backer rewards. All Marksmiths post Kickstarter have the logos.

Branding the MARKSMITH is important for us to create a sense of identity. It's like signing my artwork. However, we have decided that we will offer a no-logo version for a premium. In other words, if you want my artwork without my "signature", you can have it, but it will cost you... The premium version is completely blacked out, without any logos disrupting the deep, beautiful darkness.

Choose the "MARKSMITH Black Ti DLC PREMIUM (No Logo)" reward level if you want yours like this.

Premium no logo Marksmith

Thank you,

I've also restocked MARKSMITHs on Amazon with Prime delivery, so that's another option for quick shipment.

The refills are now also available on the Amazon listing, but those are still being shipped directly by us.


MARKSMITH REFILLS

If you need permanent marker or highlighter refills for your MARKSMITH, they are available here: https://www.soulbuilt.us/collections/marksmith

Marksmith refills are available here...

MARKSMITH Highlighter

If you want to add a Marksmith Highlighter to your collection of awesomeness, you can get it here.

Marksmith Permanent and Marksmith Highlighter are the same titanium body with different cartridges. Although the permanent ink and highlighter cartridges are cross-compatible, it's more convenient to have a dedicated highlighter instead of swapping cartridges all the time. Highlighters can also be personalized with an engraving.

It's also a highlighter!

CUSTOM ENGRAVING

If you want a custom engraving (Not available on Amazon, only available on Soul Built webstore), please also add the custom engraving item to the cart and enter the engraving details in the "ORDER NOTES" during checkout.

Personalize your Marksmith...

Something HUGE Coming Next Week!

My new Kickstarter is launching on Tuesday, Feb 1st. I will post another preview update about it. Stay Tuned!
