If, like a Boy Scout, your motto is being prepared, the Glass Breaking Tactical Pen is the perfect addition to your preparedness kit. This handy pen is refillable, so you won't have to purchase a new one as soon as you run out of ink. It's sturdy, so it will hold up to your busy, active lifestyle. The pen's best feature, however, is its glass-breaking tip, which is designed to be strong enough to crack glass if you find yourself in an emergency situation.
There are plenty of times when you might find it necessary to break glass. If you're trying to get out a window in the event of a fire or other emergency, you'll certainly want to be able to take care of the glass quickly. Accidentally wreck your car and need to escape through a window? This handy pen is just as effective as other glass-breaking methods--and safer for your elbow, if that's your usual method of choice. You never know when you'll find yourself in a position where you need to break glass, but if you have your handy pen at your side, you'll never have to worry that you'll be unable to accomplish your task.
If you've ever found yourself in an emergency situation, you know that you have to think fast and react quickly with the tools that you already have on hand. Luckily, the Glass Breaking Tactical Pen is easy to take along with you. It comes complete with a handy clip so that it can be easily attached to your pocket or any other surface that will hold a clip. In spite of its durability and strength, it's designed to be light weight. You likely won't even notice that you're carrying it until you need it. Reviewers do note that the rough texture can be hard on the fabric of your clothing, so care should be exercised when clipping the pen into place on your clothing.
This pen is so effective, in fact, that many reviewers have used it not only to break glass, but as a self-defense item. Obviously, the pen is useful only as a last resort. However, it is strong enough to be highly effective and will help save your knuckles from the beating that they might otherwise take. The tactical edge might cause you a bit of trouble if you try to pack it on an airplane, so make sure that you are prepared to pack it in your luggage appropriately if you're traveling. The tactical edge, however, is not sharp enough to pierce skin. As a weapon, the pen is therefore used primarily for blunt trauma.
Since the pen is fully functional as a writing device, it doesn't look like you're carrying a weapon, either. The only complaint anyone has about the pen is that the design does not allow for the pen tip to be fully retracted without twisting several full turns. This can be inconvenient for someone who wishes to use the pen often for short periods of time. Overall, however, most people admit that this is a limitation that be easily overcome.
The Glass Breaking Tactical Pen is the perfect choice for an addition to your everyday preparedness kit. Whether you're carrying it in your person, tucking it in a desk drawer, or keeping it in your car, the pen is a classy, effective addition to your supplies. It's one of the best tactical pens on the market as well as one of the most durable, so you'll be using it for a long time to come.
