I have a few "tactical" pens; some scream weapon while others are more low key. My favorite though is the Zebra F701. It's a pen that looks like a pen but is built like a tank. I practiced using it as a pain compliance device as well as a stabber and it's come through with flying colors. I've carried it into a lot of different NPEs without a single eyebrow being raised (especially when it's clipped to a note book or carried in a shirt pocket).



A pen for defense must allow to rest the thumb over the head.
Click pens, like the Zebra F701, are bad for this, better twist head ones.

And yes Kampfer, the UZi pen screams loudly "I AM A WEAPON, PLEASE CONFISCATE ME!!!".

Perhaps is because I am european, but I am surprised USA guys don´t think that pen looks EXCESSIVELY tactical.  ???  :whistle:

Perhaps I am too sensible...

P.S.: Like Court guards  :D

Yeah that Uzi and a few others like the one above it in this pic scream weapon, and that's one reason I'm looking for a diff pen, I found this other pen that I SOOO want, nice and simple, a bolt design so no clicky, and it's turned on a lathe so it's not thin metal and will take abuse! To top it off it is a knurled grip and yet doesn't scream weapon, and they were going for like $25, only thing is they guy who makes them is on leave or something, I've messaged him twice but no return, so idk if there going to go back to making it or what..

Not tactical, but cheap/replaceable and effective. A papermate pen cut down to 2.75". Using that the last 2 months every day and the friction cap is unloseable so far.

The Rotring Quattro is a great pen.  The only drawback is the special pen cartridges. It can also double as a tac pen since it is an all metal construction.

If they ban the CKRT forget to carry the rest of them.

Fabrications, the guy/company who makes those unique bolt pens, or are you telling me there's another guy on etsy that makes them totally the same just without a grip, in black and also closed? :-\

Quick update on my tactical pen, I sent it back for refund after it got kicked out from the court house today.
The guards knew what it is, defining it as a "weapon".
Hey, I didn't even use mine yet and it broke, I guess I over screwed it and the threads stripped.. but yeah it screams weapon even though it can't do anything..

Tactical pens, and anything representing a bullet or other weapon is really bad idea.

Various Bic and Papermate clickers are a staple for me--as one, usually free at expos and trade shows, and not a big deal if lost.  I've got a pretty nice Spanish Inoxcrom and Fisher Bullet (.375 Hornaday, if I remember correctly), but they both stay in the desk.   The Fisher cost me more than $20, and the Inoxcrom was free (was given to a family friend by a drug rep years ago before I got it, but Inoxcroms are typically $15 plus pens), but I don't like losing  pens, something I seem to be good at.

I personally prefer anything solid metal, plastic breaks all too easily.

An old favorite of mine was a small one about 2 and a half inches long, given to me by a mine supply company.  The clip lifted up to open the pen.

Ok, I did a little thinking, I'm after something that's easy to carry, something just to toss in a pocket, and something that writes something down? And preferably something that not totally expensive and easy to use! So it hit me, what about a pencil instead of a pen? I remembered I had a bullet pencil loooong back, simple, writes stuff down, easy cheap refills, just got to trim the tip and I don't go anywhere without a knife? And to top it off in case something happens it's not ink so no exploding or dried out?
 
  So I did some looking, and I found that they still make them, simple slip together, yet also found a little bit more expensive a screw together, and to top it off a kinda tactical one, that one I wrote to to get some info..
   
   Yet I also found something interesting, a bullet style bic like pen, a little bit more heavier plastic case, same design as a bullet, and I spoke to the designer and come to find out he said that the ink is the same as a bic, so just snip it to fit for a refill? To top it off the ink cartridge is inclosed so if it does leak or do something while in a pocket you won't know till you take it out and take it apart! Best of all, they come in a three pack and for only like $10! Diff colors available, and while speaking to him I found out later down the line he might be making a attachment with a keychain part..

  So, not only diff pens, but pen or pencil? :poh:

Don't know if this was mentioned before, but I carry a telescopic Zebra pen.

It's quite small when shoved together, but still decently useable while retracted.
Refils cost €0.50 over here.
No tactical use possible but I use my flashlight for that anyway.

Buy now or regret later

Yeah, I have a pair of those and like them. Only thing is that tip, it's pretty sharp and being only a pocket carry I see it making a hole over time.

I think I'm going to go with that plastic space pen like pen, it's just so simple. I'd really like one of those bolt action pens I posted a couple post back, not because their like $30 but they were so simple, just a outer, a bolt slide, and an ink cartridge, just simple, that and it has a knurled grip! But this plastic one just folds in half, two ends and an ink cartridge, supposedly that you can replace with a bic one? Plus it's the cheapest of them all. That and I spoke with the owner again and if he comes out with the keychain one, the attachment will be able to be used on any, so even if you have an old one all you need is an add on part. Plus no pointy ends so comfy in pocket and if it leaks while in pocket it will be contained. Just not a pencil so you know it's not dried out..
