Made of hard anodized aerospace-grade aluminum, it’s similar to other tactical pens in that it’s made for durability. Anodization is a process whereby the aluminum coating on the exterior actually gets stronger. Obviously a pretty big bonus for an item such as a tactical pen. The indestructibility is extended from the pen to pocket clip which is also extremely sturdy and will not break off unless something pretty intense happens to it.
On average, the Surefire tactical pen is reviewed 5/5 stars virtually everytime. The only drawback with this tactical pen is that it is a little bit on the pricey side. Still, you can often find it for pretty cheap through one of our sales on Amazon.Schmidt easyFLOW 9000 ink which is some of my favorite ink because of its versatility. It doesn’t seem like it matters if I am in the middle of a freezing cold blizzard or in the heat of silicone valley, the Schmidt easyFLOW 9000 is a fantastic ink and I am excited to see it coming stock in the Surefire IV as a tactical pens primary purpose is still to write.
Again, like all Surefire pens, it is made of rugged aerospace quality anodized aluminum which means it will be virtually incombustible. And with a heavy-duty steel pocket clip, the SureFire IV will be a pen which you will carry for many years to come.
As tactical pens do have a secondary function as a self-defence weapon, I can say that although doubtful I will ever need to use it for that purpose, it sure does feel great in the palm of my hand. It’s a bit heavier than I expected which I am sure will help me in the case I ever do need to swing it at somebody or something.
Often times, people will look for a twist style pen because they are worried about a click-mechanism breaking which is of course valid. One thing to consider however is that although a twist mechanism is more reliable, if you need to use this pen as a self-defence tool, it will take some time to turn the point. On the flip side, the twist mechanism also acts as a glass-breaker which is something the other options lack.
