Tactical Pen is a handy little item!

I was fortunate to receive a practical (and cool) self-defense item – a tactical pen .  After playing around with it for a couple weeks, I think I have a good grasp of the pros and cons of adding this implement to my self-defense arsenal.

The first and most obvious advantage is that the pen is very discreet.  At just under 6 inches long, it’s the size of a standard ink pen. It slips into a normal pants or purse pocket inconspicuously.  It fits snuggly in my hand and, although this tactical pen is heavier than a conventional pen, is not uncomfortable to hold.  It writes as I expect a pen to and, should I pull it out of my pocket to jot down a note, I doubt anyone notices it doubles as a weapon.  The un-intimidating look and ease of handling makes it a good introductory self-defense tool.  In a pinch, any pen makes a handy weapon, but the big advantage of a tactical pen is its strength.  Unlike a breakable plastic pen, most pens made for self-defense are metal and many offer a reinforced striking surface.  The particular pen I received is made from aircraft grade aluminum with a carbide glass breaker.

Any self-defense tool requires good technique, and a  search of YouTube brought up several good videos on how pens can be used for self-defense.
