Lead Identification Markers are sharp faced and can be bought in packs of 20, or in kits.

Sharp faced are generally used for x-radiography and produce a well defined, clean image on the film.

Sharp faced markers are measured on the front sharp face (peak) of the character, meaning the marker is always a little larger than the stated size. See image below.
