Pocket Shark Isn’t Your Average Marker

Pocket Shark Isn’t Your Average Marker


By Luke Anderson

When you think of carrying some sort of weapon for self-defense, what sorts of things come to mind? I’m going to guess that a permanent marker wasn’t at the top of the list. I’m sure that a Sharpie to the eye would probably do some damage, but I hardly think that makes it a weapon. Now this Pocket Shark on the other hand, now that is a weapon.

You’re still going to have to do a bit of work to make this pen do the trick. It’s made from an extremely tough glass-reinforced plastic called Grivory. The company actually makes knife blades out of this stuff, so it’s really strong. A good blow to the temple with this would definitely knock someone out. They also advertise that it is good yawara, which is a Japanese weapon that can be effectively used to perform submission holds and even break bones. At $7, this pen really is mightier than the sword. (I just couldn’t resist.)
