Never saw one before. They do look pretty neat though. Will you be buying directly from that site, or have you found a place to get them for less than $20?

In order to be certain of having the right tool for every job.........one must first acquire a lot of tools

A friend of mine gave me one back in January and it lives on my keychain now.  It's nice to always have a pen around.  Actually, Fisher is making something similar now too, the Trekker:

I've used the Zebras and I like them a lot, but I am pretty sure that the Inka is quite a bit shorter and maybe a little slimmer as well, if that matters to you.

I don't know much about the Inka Pen. But I recommend the similar Zebra Pen.  I have been carrying one in the fold of my wallet for some time now.  Also if you want to put it on your key chain it has a small split ring hole at the top of the cap.

I carried the Zebra Telescopic for quite a while in my phone pouch,and I liked it a lot.I wasn't aware Zebra made a pen that fits my new needs,but Zebra has such a big product catalog,it's hard to keep up on all their offerings. I'll have to check out Wally World on my next trip,I wish I could field test all of the pens mentioned here.

I wonder if the ink is thick like the space pens.
I have had a number of space pens and they work like they say, but I just don't like the way they feel when using  them. The ink has such a thick feel to it and the ink that is left on the tip alway's seems to pick up dirt, lint and dust.

After trying many different types of pens I ended up liking the cheap Pilot G-2 .05 gel pens that you can buy everyplace for next to nothing. They also make a mini version too.

It does not write upside down or on wet/damp items, but I like the feel to the ink when writting.
I started looking at space pens at first because I do end up writting on paper that is up against walls and on damp paper at work.

It's also nice to have a pen for outdoor use that writes on damp paper.
Often time when out geocaching I end up using the pen in my swiss card to sign damp log books.
It works great and thought I heard it was made like a space pen.

Did you get the inka pen yet?
It would nice to see some specs for size on the space pen one.

I like my Fisher Bullet pen.  I have often thought of drilling a couple of holes near the tip to hook a ring on for easier carry since the pocket clip slips off so easily, but I have never done it since I am certain I'd end up just making a mess of it.

The Pilot gel pens are also really nice, but since I'm usually pretty hard on things I hate to try and carry a plastic bodied pen anywhere.  I have several around the house though, and that's usually what I gravitate to for marking envelopes.

Of all the tools onboard my Manager,I've found that I've used the pen the most.So it makes sense to me to keep on my ring a pen closer to full size but still compact

Isn't that one of the old style 58mm Vics,that had the removable pens? I think replacement pens are still availible,but a little hard to find.

I agree,it would be nice if manufacturers would list size specs more often

Indeedily doo....

I was actually looking for the one with the slide out stylus but got a removable one instead.  I'm not complaining- you never see the pen versions of these and I never thought they even made a stylus model like this!
