This is a great little keychain pen. I've had it for over two years now and I haven't had any problems with it at all, despite tossing it around in my backpack, pockets, etc. At one point, I dropped the writing end in the snow and couldn't find it again, I went looking around a big snow bank near the area where I lost it and there it was, just waiting to be found. It stood up to the snow plough, and to three months under a frozen pile of snow. It writes just fine and has worked perfectly despite all that.

This pen is nice, works like a space pen, but setting it up full length is slow, and the way it is put together is downright stupid. Slipfit? You've got to be kidding. I lost mine the first day I had it. I looked down and there was a dangling cap. Pen long gone.

The Inka lives on your keychain as a tiny little tube. In a flash you can pull out the tiny little pen that lives inside. It's a great pen - pressurized like a Fischer space pen - and never leaks. If you have a second you can unscrew the tube case from the keychain, unscrew the bottom from the tiny pen, and then screw the case onto the pen to make a lovely and functional full sized pen.

Why bother? For me, I always had a ton of cheap ballpoint pens in my pack and sometimes they'd leak and whenever I didn't have my bag I didn't have a pen. The Inka means I ALWAYS have a good pen on me. I'll stop accumulating disposable pens (which will help the environment in a tiny way) and stop getting messy ink in my pack.

This thing is the bees knees and the only way to improve on it is to spend a bit more money for the titanium version. The functional and aesthetic difference between stainless and titanium is trivial, however. Don't think twice.

My only quibble is that the PDA stylus part lives in the back of the pen - so you can't construct a full sized PDA stylus pen (the metal tube needs to screw in where the PDA stylus part lives. This means that when you use Inka as a PDA stylus you must use it in "tiny pen" mode which makes it ergonomically not much better than the normal PDA stylus. Also, you have the end cap of Inka in your hand because it normally stows over the PDA stylus tip. So - final conclusion - Inka is the perfect solution to the personal pen issue for folks with a keychain who don't wear a jacket all the time. But it's not the perfect PDA stylus solution.

I've owned more pens than I care to imagine, some amazing and some not so amazing throw away pens. The reason being is that they all disappear. Before every semester I got into the habit of buying cases of pens, between 10-30 at a time, and having only one or two by the end of it (thats a 4 month span). It also bothered me that half the time those pens didn't work, either from being too cold outside, or just drying up, I rarely could ever get the pens to work right away (or so it seemed).

My favorite pen for the longest time was the Space Pen, always worked, no matter what. But there was a slight problem... they were easily lost, granted they would last a long time. A small hole in my pocket and there it went, or simply misplacing it in my house and not being able to find it for months (or once years). Inka solves that amazingly with their pen that attaches to your keys, ensuring that you always have a good pen. I've only owned it for a few days and yet I can't seem to find any problems with it, except for one small thing...

To list the advantages to it:
1) Key ring, I notoriously lose pens, but I doubt I'll ever lose this, unless I lose my keys.

2)Threading for the screw on parts is pretty much idiot proof, I think I messed up once but thats because I wasn't paying attention to the cap on the keyring.

3) NO SPRINGS, I hate springs in pens, just another thing that can go wrong. If I ever dropped my Space Pen in water (before I lost it) I always was frightened it would rust and ruin the pen, and its also one less thing to lose.

4) The cartridge fits tightly, making it harder for water to seep in.

5) Solid design, elegant, and doesn't look like a pen hanging from my belt unlike some other keyring pens.

This is the most durable and useful pen we have owned. Both My husband and I have had these on our key-chains for 4 years and use it frequently. Be sure to read the directions for putting it into full-size pen form (challenging later if you don't read the instructions when you get the pen). In its non-extended form it can still be used for quick notes or signatures.

The only challenge I had was finding the refills after 3 1/2 years on the first one...now I know I can get them on Amazon.com.

The best part about the pen is that we never lose it! Key chain pens, especially good ones, are not easy to find. My husband has lost 2 space pens previously. I just ordered two more Inka pens in Titanium at a great price from Amazon.com.

Verified Purchase
Assembly and dis-assembly required very time you take take out the pen or put it away. This is a pain. This is not clear in the advertising.[...]

The Fisher Space Pen - Bullet model is not much larger but easier to use. You cap and uncap a Bullet just like a regular pen.
My Bullet pen stays tucked inside my 3x5 memo book so it does not get lost.
