A sudden, unforeseen physical attack can come at any time. This tactical pen is made of 6061 aluminum, precision-machined and hard anodized. The heavy cap is threaded so that it will not pull off in use, and castellated for greater impact. The flutes and grooves on the pen, combined with the pewter-toned stainless steel pocket clip, provide a secure grip. It has a non-reflective, black finish.
