    I have a TOPS knives Special Ops pen, which comes with a kydex sheath and a silver ball chain, which I've replaced with paracord.

    However, I already have a lot of things around my neck, but is there any other mounting option people can think of? I did try wrapping the paracord around my belt and having it in my pocket but that wasn't great.

    Any suggestions?

    No idea, but when you look up the items on Amazon, you presently get a shoe for one color and a little girl in a princess dress for the other color!

    Erm, that doesn't happen for me... Maybe it's based on your previous search history? :D

    Nope. Googled TOPS Tactical Pen and down to about the fourth return I clicked and saw the glamour!

    Wait that’s not what you guys mean when you talk about tactical pens? Will amazon return my princess shoes?

    Do you carry a pack at all, some packs have hook/loop for modular additions.
    Personally I just put pens in the little pen area of my bag, but I’m boring

    I carry it with me every day. Being in the UK it would be illegal to carry something for the purposes of self defence, so it's just a very strong pen....

    Do you wear shirts with front pockets? Maybe one of those clippable sleeves that once upon a time were used to protect shirt pockets from leakage?

    I take it suit jackets pen/cigar pocket won’t work?

    Perhaps another tac pen with a clip?
    CRKT Ewan Williams is quite sleek, Benchmade small enough not to raise any eyebrows. Sahara Sailor quite hefty but carries nicely....

    Who knows?

    That's precisely why I carry a zebra 701 if I carry a tactical pen at all.

    I have a CRKT TWP that I love. I've had bad luck and have lost a few of them. I'm on my third or fourth one now and have decided that I'm not buying another. I've been lucky so far.

    I usually keep it clipped in my left front pocket on my jeans. I used to keep it on the right with my knife but that got too crowded. So if you come up with a better solution, I'm all ears.

    I hope you do. There's one or two good suggestions on here.

    I like something compact for edc; something that will 'disappear' into my jeans pocket without requiring a clip. So I carry a Fisher 'bullet' Space Pen in a leather slip together with a Streamlight Microstream (1xAAA) lite in the same slip. In fact, I use a Kaweco leather slip intended for two of the Kaweco 'Lilliput' pens. This disappears into my jeans pocket together with: an Altoids FAK and an Omron pedometer, plus a keyring with a few items on hanging on a Ti 'pickpocket' dangler. None of them bunch up. None of them have ever fallen out. All are easy to pull out. None of them 'poke' me when I sit, etc.

    Now, I'm a big guy (42 W); so my jeans pockets are commodious! Maybe that has something to do with it? If I wore skinny type jeans probably wouldn't work out! ;)

    L'chaim!
