A folding ballpoint pen that fits in your wallet


The Foldz Flat Pen is a stainless steel writing instrument with leather trim that folds down to the size of a credit card, for easy storage in your wallet. The design is interesting, but Iā€™m not sure how comfortable it would be to write with due to the triangular shape that it folds into. I think I should do a series of wacky but useful pen reviews, what do you guys think? šŸ™‚

    What an awful idea. My wallet is full enough with all of the other stuff. There are a multiplicity of ways to carry pens, including in a side pants pocket.

    As to other gadget pens, I have yet to see one that I would own and use. A weapon pen might be nice to have at hand on the right occasion, but I might be subject to arrest for not declaring it during my daily walks through the security magnometers in the courthouses.

  3. I actually had one of these. It worked great for about a month and probably would have worked even longer except for the small problem that those wings are very thin and prone to bending. After about a month of carrying mine around, while it still wrote fine it just did not feel right anymore and I ended up throwing it away.

  4. Ditto on the Space Pen, but I do think this looks like a fun thing to try.

    The plastic version looks like an interesting idea- I have this vision of “Official Gadgeteer Folding Pens” for sale, or as a part of a ‘Gadgeteer Survival Pack’.

  5. I have had the fold up pen for eight years and I love it!!!! Staples even has the correct size refills for new ink. Would not be without it as all I carry is a wallet—-would not be bothered with a purse.
