Best Tactical Pens

Pens come in many shapes and sizes, but not all pens are created equal. While many everyday carry pens look cool and can write, they’re often too dainty or fragile for people who are hard on their gear. Whether you’re busy filling out paper work on your beat, or just someone who prefers beefier tools, a tactical pen is a great addition to your setup. In this “Best Of” we look at some of the Best Tactical Pens at Blade HQ and what makes them great. Let’s get to it!
