GB31001880: Impromptu Tactical Pen
Danger has a way of presenting itself when you least expect it. That's why Gerber, in collaboration with law enforcement professionals, developed the Impromptu Tactical Pen. Sure, it's a pen and it'll serve to take notes like a good pen should, but it's not your average writing implement. Made from machined steel with a tempered window-shattering tip design, the Impromptu Tactical Pen can be used to break a windshield or defend yourself from an unexpected attack.

Multiuse, Made in the USA
The Impromptu Tactical Pen combines Gerber’s decades of experience crafting tools with valuable input from police officers to offer a utilitarian tool that could quite literally be your ticket to safety. During interviews, officers agreed that the most important tool you can carry is the item that happens to be in your hand, which more often than not turns out to be a pen. So Gerber designed a pen that can write in all conditions and is rugged enough to handle the unexpected. This USA-made, push-button pen features a "Rite in the Rain" ballpoint pen cartridge that is effective in wet and dry conditions, and the tool's machined steel body is stout enough to rise to the unexpected call of duty.

Fits Your Daily Routine
Sure it's stout, but it fits easily into your pocket like an ordinary pen and will become part of your daily routine, on the job and off. Whether you're in your vehicle or responding to a call in the field, it's easy to make the Tactical Pen part of your routine equipment. But unlike an ordinary ballpoint pen, this one will be there when you need more than just a writing implement.

Solid Pen
So far I've only used it to write with and really hope I don't have to use it "tactically". Quite heavy but then that probably works in it's favour when necessary. The quality of the build and materials for the price puts some luxury pens to shame.

Feels like a tank in your hand, writes like a dream.
I will admit I was originally attracted to this pen because it looked like something out of a sci-fi movie, but it has proven really practical for me. It is built like a tank and deploys smoothly via the push button, (no screw on cap, thank goodness). The construction is all stainless steel and it will accept the several different ink cartridges, but comes with the Fisher cartridge which is excellent. You will probably never need the tactical aspect of this pen, but you could just as well be the person writing a review of how this pen saved your life. IMHO it is worth the money, I plan to buy a second one as a back up should I lose this one. Get one!
