Sure, these are just like the old gag pens that they've sold at joke & novelty shops for decades.
But the big difference is they look just like the Sharpie markers that so many of us already carry.
That means it's something I would actually use.

Is it worth the price?
Well, for the trouble of creating and producing this specialty item (including mark-ups for wholesale and retail) I suppose the price is what the creator decided it would be to make it worth their trouble. I doubt anyone is going to get rich off this item, and I'm glad they are priced high enough as not to become too commonplace.

Truth be told, if used at the right time and place, these stupid gags can get more of a reaction than any top notch sleight of hand.
I think it's something I could have some fun with. I know I had plenty of fun with the old Bic pen version when I was a kid.

That's a BIG con. for 25$ that d@mn thing better be well made so that doesn't happen after day one.. or two or 56.

Actually it has. A couple times I am pretty sure.
