If it is considered a Tactical Pen it might belong in the Self Defence section.

    If the word tactical is not being used and the topic is only about it's use as a writing implement is can be in the section.

    The moment it becomes a self-defense topic it belongs in the Self Defense section.

    This should be a very interesting thread,
    I'm very interested in the various ways these pens open and or retract/close and what type of refills they will accommodate .
    A larger gage or tip size is more comfortable for me to write with as well as grip closer to the fingertips and smooth against the Phalange between the thumb and forefinger .
    I am thinking some of these pens could become quite uncomfortable after prolonged use ?
    Or, it my prove that the more expensive models are what one would expect from a fine writing instrument in these respects ..

    Subscribed !

    BE WELL .. GH

    Can it be in the general writing topic if I mention how well a pen writes, but caution that it is marketed as a tactical pen? And, if seen by a police officer during a traffic stop, it could cause some extra unwanted attention. Honestly, my Schrade pen (version 1) is a great EDC pen for writing. I don't recommend it to other NYC residents since it could draw unwanted attention from knowledgeable LEOs here. I also feel that mentioning how it's marketed might be a consideration for buying and carrying it.

    Maybe there is a better way than what I am trying to do.

    Here is the reason for trying to control it. A large number of members are on the forums not for defense topics at all. There are also others who do viist the self defense topics that come in here have mentioned they come in for writing tools. The go to the self defense area for weapons. This is off topic a bit but the "everyone needs and everyone should" type of statments has turned off a few members to.

    What I have been trying to do is seperate the writing aspect and weapon aspect of the object to their appropriate areas. That might be hard to pull off.
