Why the Crate Club Tac Pen?Like the Benchmade SOCP or any CQB tool in general, the Tac Pen is designed for extreme close quarters use. Unlike the SOCP it’s discrete, very discrete. It just looks like a pen. You can stash it in your front shirt pocket, your front pocket, or just clipped to your shirt. Or you can just carry it around in your hand. No one will know you have a weapon in hand. Imagine a situation where you get taken to the ground before you can grab your gun or your knife. Your wrestling with an opponent, and maybe even fighting over your firearm. What can you do? How about you drive a sharp tungsten tip into your attacker’s neck, armpit, chest, eyes, or wherever else. Then do it again, and again, until you get away or get a bigger weapon.
What Else?I would never break the law and try to sneak the Crate Club Tac Pen onto a plane, or into an area that prohibits all weapons. However, in certain situations, there is a difference between policy and law. Maybe policy says I can’t carry a knife or gun, but does it say I can’t carry a Tac Pen? If so is it against the law? It’s up to you, but policies not backed by law have never been a concern to me. I like having a small tool that gives me each and every advantage possible in a fight. I only got one life, you’re damn right I’ll use tooth, claw, and pen to defend it.
LastlyThe Crate Club Tac Pen is a Discrete Stabbing tool, but it's also a half decent survival tool. In a car accident where you need to punch out a window, you are well equipped to do so. The same goes for breaking in and out buildings during disaster situations. There aren’t many windows that can’t be opened with the Crate Club Tac Pen.
Design DetailsThe Crate Club Tac Pen is designed for stabbing. It features three textured rings for increased control and to really cement in your hand. The pointy end is raised around the grip to help prevent your hand from sliding forward when you meet resistance. The tungsten tip is strong enough to punch through thin metal. On the backside, the cap comes off and it is an actual pen. I don’t know much about pens, but the Crate Club Tac Pen writes smoothly and looks stylish. Let’s be real though, it this isn’t for signing your John Hancock. It’s for stabbing bad guys.
