Tactical Pen Everyday Carry
One of the greatest benefits to being a woman prepper is the use of a handbag. I store a variety of everyday carry items in it like a knife, duct tape, pepper spray, key chain light, multi tool, small first aid kit, battery bank, and other essentials. My newest and most used everyday carry item is a $6 glass breaker tactical pen.
I’ve had it for two weeks and use it to write with everyday. Its also been used quite a bit for opening boxes. The lightweight but hard aviation aluminum casing and steel tip glass breaker makes this an effectively painful self defense weapon. Unlike my mace or knife, I don’t have to dig for the tactical pen. It clips to an outside pocket for easy access and is the only item my husband has successfully located in my handbag. I can also carry it openly without alarming those around me.
What To Look For in a Tactical Pen
2. Using the glass breaker is far more practical with the Tungsten because of the pen cap. One of the most common techniques when using a tactical pen is to place a thumb over the end of the pen for greater leverage. This is painful to do with the Aviation because there is no flat surface (one end is the glass breaker the other end is the pen).
3. After several attempts at breaking glass the Aviation glass breaker tip lost it’s pointed end but the Tungsten held it’s shape nicely.
-They both get scratched up when using the glass break.
