Cold Steel Pocket Shark Pen Is Literally Mightier Than Some Swords

We Gizmodo bloggers often kill people with our snarky words. Slay them, if you will, with gadget humour. That's figurative, of course. But today, with this Pocket Shark pen, we can finally kill for real.

And at $US7, it's never been easier to dispatch an adversary with a writing utensil. The product description, provided by maker Cold Steel, is as cold and ruthless as the pen itself:

"[The Pocket Shark]features walls that are 4 times thicker than similar markers. This means it's built for impact and, in a self-defence emergency it can become an efficient Yawara stick for driving off an attacker. Plus, the screw-top cap will stay in place and won't pop off like a regular marker's cap would when you strike a percussion blow, or when obtaining joint locks or submission holds."

Great for firing off an expense report and defending you in a dark alley after leaving the office, all in the same day. Sign me up. [Cold Steel via technabob]
