Marking inside a titanium pot

I've got a alpkit myti mug the 600 I think it is. Would it be safe to engrave or even roughly scratch markings on the side for measurements on the inside of it without making it unsafe for food purposes. I want a rough measure of water levels for doing noodles etc would rather mark this than carry s...

Re: Sleeping Bags

I've got the phantom spark if you want any info on it. I got it earlier this month just not been out yet due to work and farm commitments.

Packs down great lofts up nicely and the zip is nice and long too so it can be opened up if it's too warm
