Petrolheads among you will find the material used to make the barrels of these pens strangely familiar. It's stainless-steel braided hose of the type used to sheath brake lines and electrics on cars and motorcycles, especially in high-performance environments.
They say: "These products are designed in accordance with Ferdinand Alexander Porsche's personal philosophy: timeless good design is not just a matter of superficial styling. It is a process that takes place from within, as part of the formal implementation of a functional principle. TecFlex translates beautifully from the world of racing to the realm of writing instruments by providing excellent material to create a functional form."
We say: These are actually really nice pens. Crossover-brand items can be deeply naff but these are well-designed using an original concept. With Pelikan's real-world pen experience behind them they perform as well as they look. Not just for Porsche owners!
