So how many times have you tried write yourself a note under water, or really needed to jot down some coordinates in the vacuum of space, or more practically sign a receipt against the wall? If you’ve answered yes to any of those questions you may want to snag yourself an Inka Pen.
There are really 3 parts to the pen, the pressurized ink chamber, the metal enclosure, and the cap. In its most compact form the ink chamber slides into the metal enclosure perfect for stowing away in your pocked or just hanging on a keychain. When you want to write something, just screw the ink chamber into place and you’re good to go. As an added bonus, the opposite end of the ink chamber hids a stylus tip – you know for all you touchscreen fanatics out there. So does it work?
Under water – yes. Upside down – yes, In space – not sure. Hey 2 out of 3 is pretty darn good. Tho I can never think of a time when writing anything under water is necessary I found most pens fail when the tip is wet. Not so with the Inka. The ink flowed smoothly without interruption. The next test was writing from any angle. This was most useful for signing take out food receipts. Often times you’re forced to substitute a vertical wall as a flat stable surface to sign on. Most pens fail from this 90º angle. The Inka kept working like a champ. Curiously I decided to see if it could write totally upside down. While assembling my TV cabinet last weekend, I found the Inka to be a reliable mate for making crucial measurements upside down.
The pen itself it decently comfortable to hold. I usually prefer some squishy gel padding but that’s because I hold and press hard when I write. It’s not the most comfortable pen to write long letters with (use email) but it more than achieves its goal – a lightweight, watertight pen built to withstand harsh environments with a pressurized ink cartridge that will write wet or dry at any angle, any temperature, and any altitude.
