For those of you looking for an efficient, strong, heavy duty tactical pen that is also still able to write pretty good, the UZI TACPEN2-BK Aircraft Aluminum Defender Tactical Pen with Glassbreaker is a good choice anytime.

Here are the pros that got us:

  • This tactical pen is made of lightweight aircraft aluminum
  • There is long lasting, heavy duty carbide tip glass breaker
  • The tip glass breaker is subtle and strong
  • This is compatible with Standard and Fischer space pen refills
  • The pen is a stylish black
  • This is TSA approved
  • The pen is just the right size, not too big, nor too small
  • The pen looks nice and elegant
  • There is space for hand cuff key under the glass breaker
  • There is no cap to lose
  • This is well made
  • The pen is tough, durable
  • Even though it’s great as tactical pen, the pen still writes very well
  • The price is amazing
  • There is a strong, sturdy belt clip
  • You only need to twist the pen in order to write
  • There is a knurl that’s efficient for pre-emptying the pen
  • This stands well on a shirt or some pants
  • The glass breaker tip is strong and efficient
  • The clip on the pen is quite strong
  • The logo UZI is a white, on the upper part of the pen and it’s quite subtle

There are some features that we like less on this pen, so here are our cons:

  • The grip in the bottom part is not very good and the pen tends to slip
  • The pen is on the heavy weight side and your hand gets tired after some writing
  • There is a simple plastic bag as packaging which is not very reliable
  • You need more than 1 revolution to completely retract the pen
  • The bottom is half plastic
  • The clip is a bit too strong and it’s difficult to use it sometimes
  • The clip actually stands in the way when using the pen as a tactical device
  • The ink that comes with it is not very good quality
  • The tip is very sharp and you need to pay attention to never leave it around children.

All in all, this is a reliable tactical pen of good quality for the money you pay. It’s a solid and long lasting pen that completes your EDC gear.
