Inka Titanium.

Design, Gadgets, Useful Things by Richard

Keychain pens. They’re pretty simple, just tiny pens that fit on your keychain, right? Not so with the Inka Titanium. From the moment I got it, I could tell that a ton of thought went into the design /development of the pen. Even the packaging is well thought out. The Inka comes in a package that looks a lot like the blister packaging that most new gadgets come in these days, and which we all hate because they’re near impossible to open. I was happy to discover that it was actually only friction-sealed and came apart with a slight pull.

In this world of iPod cases, screen protectors, and other products made to protect new gadgets that aren’t very durable, the Inka Titanium is a welcome change. I’m definitely not worried about tossing this into my pocket on my keychain, because I know that it will stand up to whatever abuse I throw at it (I tend to throw my keys everywhere). I’ve used it several times just this weekend, in cases where I wished I had something to write with at a moment’s notice, then realized that I did! It’s been thrown around, dropped, bounced around in a pocket with about 10 keys, and isn’t even showing a scratch.

The Inka also writes underwater, upside down, in any temperature and at any altitude. It also includes a stylus tip for those of us who keep misplacing our PDA styluses. The Inka quickly comes apart to offer a quick-use pen, but it even screws into itself to become a full sized pen for more comfortable, lengthier writing. I feel like a secret agent everytime I put it together!

The Special Titanium Edition Inka pen is $89.95, but there is also a less expensive, aluminum version of the pen that’s $25. Refills for either one are only $4 each.
