A New Twist from Porsche Design
The P'3140 Shake Pen Twist is a new variation on Porsche Design's popular Shake pen. The new ballpoint features a milled solid aluminum barrel with matte chrome front and end pieces. A small indentation at the end of the ballpoint prevents the pen from rolling on a sloping surface. Why is it called "Shake?" Well, I'll tell you. By moving your wrist with a brief snapping motion, the writing point is catapulted out of the barrel by a small weight in the end piece--and the pen is ready for writing. If you repeat the movement, the cartridge point disappears back into the housing. Shake Pen Twist sells for under $200.
