A tactical pen is a popular everyday carry for preppers. Although they can widely differ in weight, size, and design there are some common features that all tactical pens have. These features are a replaceable ballpoint pen, aluminum kubotan for self-defense, and a steel tip designed for breaking glass. I’m a big fan of tactical pens so it’s fun to see when a company gets creative.

The Survival Hax tactical pen has some additional features that are not found on most tactical pens, like a flashlight and fire starter which makes it a useful everyday carry. Its curvy design makes it comfortable to hold and it writes smoothly. The glass breaker steel tip and aluminum casing are good quality. It weighs .6 ounces more than the pen I’m currently carrying which isn’t bad considering the extra features. It’s also longer than many tactical pens which can be helpful in a self-defense situation. One thing that is a little troublesome about this pen is the screw on flashlight feature. I unscrewed the glass breaker to use the pen and screwed the glass breaker end on the top of the flashlight. When I unscrew the glass breaker to replace the cap the flashlight top came off too and the battery and spring fell out and were lost for a while. It takes (3) LR927 batteries that would be meticulous to replace. Overall, it’s a fully loaded tactical pen that I’m happy to add to my collection.
