A Tactical Pen's relatively small size enables it to be easily accessed from either a shirt pocket or from the pocket of a pair of pants.
With a modicum of widely available training, a Tactical Pen can be wielded and utilized as effectively as a kubaton, which may actually be banned in some locations. Many Tactical Pens available in the marketplace are manufactured with a housing made of aerospace grade anodized aluminum. As such, they are lightweight and have an ergonomic form optimized for "ice pick" and "forward" grips to deliver effective defensive strikes to an assailant.
Moreover, many models are equipped with a special "glass break" tip that can shatter automobile windows, which can be of great usefulness in an emergency.
A Tactical Pen is a worthy item to be added to your EDC (Every Day Carry).
