    Tactical Pen for EDC Any Thoughts???

    I am thinking about adding a Tactical Pen to my EDC but unsure what to get or if they are worth the money. Does anyone have any thoughts or suggestions?

    My personal preference: Parker Jotter, stainless steel.

    The barrel is all steel, thick, and doesn't scream tactical. This and a good small flashlight is my EDC everywhere I cannot do any better.

    This is my issue with the Zebra 701.

    The core is all plastic and I've broken the tip off where it threads into that plastic. The Parker Jotter has done a better job for me so far in that regard.

    Start my day off with a chuckle. That was my PDC pen for thirty years. Then I retired from the post office.
    The beasts of modernism have mutated into the beasts of postmodernism—relativism into nihilism, amorality into immorality, irrationality into insanity, sexual deviancy into polymorphous perversity. And since then, generations of intelligent students under the guidance of their enlightened professors have looked into the abyss, have contemplated those beasts, and have said, “How interesting, how exciting.”

    My Amazon says purchased April of 2014 and I am still carrying it today. The paint is mostly all rubbed off, and the ink is within a few months of replacing, but still works through weekly writing with it.

    4 dollars, well worth the two years.

    I won't lie though, I got this is a tester, to make sure I could carry a pen without losing it or getting it stolen. My next one will be much better, but I would be lying to say this one hasn't done well for me.

    Parker Jotter; carry a classic from 1954! The all stainless is super nice but apparently the nylon barreled variety is plenty strong. Reports are salesmen would stand on the nylon barrels to demonstrate their strength.

    I carry an aircraft grade aluminum RoteRing every day. The thing has been more places than most people. Been in my daily load since before tactical pens were cool.

    Worry not, young Jedi. It is possible to reassemble various parts from other Zebra's, and make it all metal.

    This also has the advantage of removing all the brand markings, and your pen is now sterile.

    I have been doing that for a few years. I still have the original Surefire pen that was a gift, but it stays at home next to the checkbook.
