To the uninitiated, this is simply a grey pen that looks a little on the chunky side. To those who understand what it can be used for, it sticks out like a sore thumb. For instance, I would not try bringing this pen on a commericial aircraft as the TSA will probably confiscate it. Playing dumb will likely result in a bigger hassle than it's worth so either leave it home or put it in your checked baggage.
As for it being a pen, all that I can say is that it's capable of making marks on paper. It's not very comfortable to hold, but I've had worse. The refill that it comes with tends to skip, but it's easily replaced with a Parker "Gel" refill. It's possible that the Fischer "Spacepen" refill will fit but I haven't tried it.
However, what makes this pen useless to me is its cap. It certainly screws on to close the pen very nicely. The problem is what happens to it when you want to use the pen. Short of slamming the cap onto the top of the pen by banging it on something solid, it will not stay there. Whoever designed this thing is a total idiot. Sorry, but I can think of no other way to say it. This is not high technology. Pens have come with caps for decades and every one that I have ever owned was capable of staying on the pen while in use.....except for this one.
After using this pen for a few minutes, I defy anyone not draw the same conclusion. If the cap does not stay on the pen, what do you do with it? As I see it, there are 2 options. 1)You can set it aside and risk losing it.Read more ›
The pen's cap unscrews to use as a writing instrument; the threads are cut fine, and it requires two revolutions to unscrew the cap. The cap has a black pocket clip screwed in, which has the Schrade logo lasered on. If you don't want the logo showing, just unscrew the pocket clip (it uses a Torx driver, size T-6, and there are two screws) and put a piece of black electrical tape over the logo. Put a drop of LocTite on the threads and screw the clip back on. When clipped to a pocket, about 5/8" of the pen sticks out. The top of the cap is flat. The cap will fit on the pen while writing, using friction.
The body of the pen has five sections of fluting, and they do a good job of providing grip without ripping up your hands. However, they tend to dig into your fingers under lengthy use. The tip of the pen ends in a point, but it's not sharp and won't wear your pockets down easily. The pen unscrews to refill, and takes about 6 revolutions to get off. It doesn't unscrew by itself, unlike some of the other cheap tactical pens.
In terms of actual defensive use, the Schrade pen performs as advertised.Read more ›

Nice pen. The clip grips like a bulldog. The "cap" does fit on the pointed end and stays there while you write. Read morePublished 1 month ago by JC_N_VA
I'm tempted to give this bad boy 4 stars because the filler cartridge is slightly less than optimal but I didn't get it for the insert. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Amazon Customer

I now have 2 of these. Clean design and I really like it. They could have done a better job on the cap retention, but I would not let that deter you from buying 1.Published 15 months ago by JackG
This item is HUGE. No one is ever going to mistake this for a normal pen. In addition the cap screws off in a manner that precludes its use as a pen with any regularity. Read morePublished on February 28, 2013 by JPW062
