The pen is designed to be clipped onto a keychain. The writing part of the pen slides into the metal container part and needs to be pulled out with force. Since it's slim and contoured to the metal part, it's hard to be snagged by something and accidentally pulled out. If you just want to jot down a quick note, you can just pull out the pen, or you can unscrew the metal part from the keychain part, pull out the pen from the metal case, unscrew the back part of the pen and place it at one end of the metal tube and screw on the pen to the top part of the metal tube. Yeah, it sounds inconvenient, but you're talking about a pen that's freakin bomb proof.
To have a writing utensil that you can keep on your key chain and know you're not going to lose, and be able to use it underwater, upsidedown and in any environment..now that's an true edc pen.
Oh, one more thing, when you unscrew the end of the writing part, there's a stylus at the end of it. cool beans.
First let me state I am basing this review on the functionality intended, a key chain pen. It seems others would like it to be able to stop a would be attacker or write upside down under water for example, I use it as pen.
I have been using this same pen since 2012 and it is the best Keychain, edc, pocket, whatever pen period! I have a tried a bunch, from cheapo to expensive beam me up Scotty space key chain pens and this one has worked the best and lasted longest. It stays on my key chain and I use all the time to sign stuff like credit card receipts (don't really like using the pens offered from the sales person... yech!) and write quick, and even not so quick notes. A "key" point here being it stays ON my key chain and hasn't gotten lost or broken in my pocket. The thing I like the most and I didn't think I would is it's ability to open into a full size pen for "comfort" writing. I thought I would mostly just pull the "stubby" part out, sign or write and be done with it. And for the most part that is what I do. But it has been really enjoyable to use it full size for writing extended notes. A little cumbersome to convert it admittedly, but having the option is well worth it when you need it. All in all, a very good buy and well worth having.
So, I came back looking for more of these, not because I lost it or it doesn't work anymore, but because I want more of them!! I was hoping to put them in my backpacks, cars, etc just in case. OUT OF STOCK!! And, I can't seem to find the refills anymore either. Guess I'm Googling and hoping I find another source! These things are great!
It’s nigh indestructible, aesthetically & minimalistically designed, always easy to access, a great conversation starter, compact, long lasting, fully functioning in extreme environments, and just feels good when you touch it.
It works underwater, upside-down, in space, in extreme temperatures, and it feels great in your hand.
