Similar to a standard kubotan but with a pointed end very similar to a small lance tip this thing will PENETRATE rather than apply pressure upon striking so it really along the lines of a small push dagger or other blade.
It's advantages over a tool like the Cold Steel Urban Pal or similar dagger is that it can be drawn very quickly since it isn't sheathed and it looks like a normal pen in your pocket.
If your idea of self defense is shanking an attacker up in an Old Skool Prison sort of way then this is your ticket!!
The S&W pen is 5-3/4" long and just under 1/2" thick at the cap. The entire pen is made of 6061 aluminum, and the machining is good for the price. The anodizing is nicely done, and seems to be a Type II. If the pen rubs against coins or other metal surfaces, the anodizing will wear off quickly. The pen comes with a black Hauser cartridge; Hauser is a decent enough ink, while S&W could have went with a cheap, no-name ink cartridge. Kudos. A Fisher Space Pen refill will work with this pen, but you'll need some sort of spacer added to the back. It will have to be 3/8" long; I just trim a piece from a large pencil eraser.
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 Smith & Wesson 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.Read more ›
In summary, this is an excellent, low cost tactical pen. Makes it difficult to justify purchasing one of the more expensive competing products out there.
I keep this pen clipped on the inside of my pocket all the time. It is indeed a very solid pen, however twice I have unclipped it from my pocket only to find a cap in my hand and the pen in the bottom of my pocket. This would have been very bad if I was in a situation where I needed my pen. I have since added some Teflon tape to the threads and it appears to have fixed the problem, but I wish they would have added a oring or something to prevent this (it would have also made the pen waterproof too which would have been cool). I still prefer it over a standard pull cap as I feel that might get uncapped in a rough situation.
If you don't like the Smith and Wesson logo you may be able to remove it with nail polish remover. The ink quality is mediocre, but it takes a popular replacement so you can buy high quality inserts if you want.
