Despite our 24-hour addiction to smartphones these days, it’s still never a bad idea to continue carrying around a pen of some sort, especially when that pen functions as a glass breaker, a self-defense mechanism, and can write underwater. This is the APEX Tactical Pen from ZeroHour.
Along with these perks, each pen is made from either polished Grade 5 titanium or 6061 Aircraft Aluminum. The glass breaking and self-defense tip is made from tungsten steel and the ink cartridge is from Fisher Space Pen which allows this tactical pen to function in even the most extreme conditions. The body length of the Apex also measures out at 4.7-inches, making it one of the shortest tactical pens on the market today. They’re from the same brand that brought us the ZeroHour flashlight projects that took off with wild success, and we expect this piece of EDC gear to follow suit. Reservations start at $35 and estimated delivery is slated for August. [Purchase]
