I paid $25 for the Smith and Wesson stylus tip tactical pen. It came a day later with the amazon prime free shipping. The most notable feature of the pen is the stylus tip in the cap. I have a lot of touch screens to deal with a work, and the pen will see a lot of use. The construction of the pen is Aluminum and is in no way cheap. This is a heavy duty pen. The back end of the pen ends in a point and can be used as a striking weapon or to break glass. The pocket clip is heavy duty like the rest of the pen and will not slip out. The cap unscrews to expose the pen and screws on to the back end to hold it while writing. It seems to be a little thicker than most pens and is heaver at 1.2 oz loaded. You can get it in Black, pink, and gold.
So I think the pen would be a winner for anyone that works like a man. Operators, Mechanics, Line Men, Emergency workers and so on would find the world of tactical pens a handy tool. I will use the pen at work for a while and post a follow up on my real world experience with this type of pen. I predict i will not use the striker weapon feature, but i will use the stylus end a lot.
