While most people may have ‘graduated’ to computers for their more intensive writing nowadays, it is still wise to carry around a pen from time to time. Couple that with a notebook and you are pretty much set. You never know when creativity is going to strike you and you will need to jot down a few notes! Of course, it is always great to carry around a notebook and pen because you never know when your phone is going to die on you!
Best Tactical Pens
We are going to take a look at tactical pens. Tactical pens are a touch different to other pens that you may find on the market. They may have a few extra features that you can rely on from time to time. In addition to this, they will tend to be built of sturdier materials which means that they are going to last an age when you are using them. We will highlight the various features as we go through the five listed on this page.
Under Control Tactical Pen + Flashlight Glass Breaker and DNA Catcher
We are going to kick off this list with one of the most fully featured tactical pens that you are going to find on this page. We are doing this to show you just what a tactical pen may include if you end up buying one.
This pen has a flashlight built into it. It isn’t the largest flashlight in the world, of course. However, it is going to provide you with a decent amount of illumination. In addition to this, the end of the pen is going to be large enough to break glass. This means that it has the potential to save your life.
The best part about this pen is that, while it is going to be pretty sturdy, it is not too heavy. This means that you are going to absolutely love carrying it around without any issues. The toughness of the pen means that it is going to last an age without any breakage.
Smith & Wesson Police and Military SWPENMPBK Tactical Pen
This tactical pen has been built from aircraft aluminum. This means two things. Firstly, it is going to be incredibly light. Aircraft need to be light, after all. The second is that this tactical pen is going to be very tough. Try as you might, you are going to find it very difficult to damage it, even in the slightest.
One of the things that we love about this pen is the fact that it has a relatively low price. Despite this, it is brilliant at writing. You are able to replace the ink cartridge in it too. This is not normally something that you get when you snap up a tactical pen at a low price like this, so kudos to Smith & Wesson for adding this feature in here!
VKTech Tactical Pen Anti Skid Aviation Aluminum
This is another tactical pen which has been built from aircraft aluminum. Once again, this means that you are going to be able to enjoy something which is both lightweight and incredibly tough, which is always going to be great!
The wring that this pen produces is absolutely sublime. However, the thing that we love the most is just how great it feels in your hand. It boasts an anti-skid construction which means you are not going to need to worry about it slipping and sliding around during usage. This is something which is going to be especially important if you are planning on using the pen as a weapon.
While we are on the subject of using this pen as a weapon, it is fabulous at that. There is enough power in this pen to break glass. Imagine how much power there would be here to defend you against an attack! (Hint: there is more than enough power for that purpose in this pen!)
Gerber Impromptu 31-001880 Tactical Pen
For many people, Gerber are regarded as the ‘gods’ of multitools. As a result, it really comes as no surprise that the company have released one of the best tactical pens ever devised. Of course, the main aim of this pen is to provide you with a decent writing experience, and it is able to provide you with that. However, it also works well as a weapon.
Unlike the other tactical pens on this list, this one has been made from a machine hardened steel. Don’t worry, it is not that much heavier than the aluminum. The machine hardened steel ensures that you are going to be able to have a decent amount of protection from any attacks.
One of the main highlights of this pen is that it comes equipped with an ink cartridge that can work in the rain. There are very few pens out there on the market that can do this. This makes the pen absolutely fabulous for those who are out and about quite a lot.
UZI UZI-TACPEN2-GM Defender Tactical Pen
Next up on our list is this pen from Uzi. When it comes to the quality of the writing experience, this is one of the best on the list so far. It is so smooth and the quality of the ink it leaves behind is second to none.
This particular pen has, once again, been constructed from aircraft aluminum. This means that you can expect something which is night and light, yet highly durable. Our favourite thing about this pen is the finish on it. It has a ‘gun metal finish’ which, if we are being truly honest, does look fabulous!
The end of the pen has been built from carbide. This is highly durable and will allow you to smash glass with ease.
Remember, before you pick up a tactical pen, you should always read through as many reviews as you possibly can. Not only are you looking for something that writes well, but you are also looking for something which will provide you with the protection that you need.
