A tactical pen gives you one more thing to rely on should your night turn out differently than expected and self-defense comes into play. Also, it helps you write stuff down. To that end, what you want in a tactical pen is strength, graspability and refillable ink so its dual usefulness keeps going strong. This one from Boker ticks all the boxes, plus a couple extra.
Strong? Yes. Hardcoat anodized aluminum makes up the body of the pen. To keep it firmly in your grip, the Bolt Action Pen has a flat end for thumb positioning. And the ink refills are standard LAMY #M22s. What are the extras? The integrated clip makes it easy to slide in and out of pockets, while not protruding into your hand when you’re holding tight. Then there’s the bolt action open/close mechanism. So satisfying when you’re looking for something to do with your hands. – $65
