User Experience

Usability: One of the best and worst aspects of this pen is the bolt action that it has. It’s not just a gimmick, as it is the way you are going to get the pen to click in and out of the casing. This is great as it is a highly satisfying feeling as if you are clearing a cartridge out of a gun.

The bad aspect about this though is just how highly addictive it is. You will find yourself constantly clicking it in and out of place, possibly to the annoyance of everyone around you. Aside from being a cool feature, it also gives you a secure lock on your pen too.

The pen itself is high-quality and you will be able to use it every day and enjoy the smooth writing action that it gives. The durability that the pen has will also ensure that it doesn’t break and is going to be able to last you for many years. It’s also a pen that would go perfectly with a waterproof notebook.

The grip of the pen is well-designed as the dialed surface will be able to give you a comfortable feel but does so while also giving you a very high level of grip. There is a hidden feature in there too as one inch and one-centimeter markings are carefully hidden inside it.

The lifesaver: While able to excel in its primary purpose of being a usable pen, many other great features are potentially going to save your life. The whistle and the glass breaker are both great ideas that could come in extremely useful.

The glass breaker that it has comes in the form of a tungsten tip that is situated at the end of the pen. This is highly effective and comes in a wide push-away design to ensure that the glass is thrown away from your hand. This isn’t something you want to ever have to use but it will give you great peace of mind.

The whistle is going to be able to make a very loud sound that will be able to alert someone if there is an emergency. You are actually also able to make multiple tones when blowing on the whistle too by sliding your fingers up and down it. This is a great tactical product and would be perfect to be placed in your tactical backpack with other items such as a tactical flashlight.

These features make it a brilliant product to have and it’s a good idea to have one in your office or workspace, and another one permanently kept in your car or your survival kit. You’ll always have use of a pen but now you’ll have a couple of key emergency items should disaster strike.


  • Great for emergencies
  • Smooth writing flow
  • Stylish design
  • Durable construction
  • Easy to attach


  • The mechanism can be loud
  • Whistle requires removal of the tip
