Tactical pens by knife maker Rick Hinderer
These tactical pens were designed by knife maker Rick Hinderer. The pens are subtle in terms of size but are massive in terms of performance. Rick Hinderer, for instance, selected a Fisher Space Pen refill. These refills also work upside down and under other different circumstances. And, as befits a real Hinderer, these pens have a modular construction. As such different parts are interchangeable. The pens are available in different materials and colours: aluminium, copper and titanium for instance.
More than just writing
The tactical Rick Hinderer pens can do more than just write. The pens, for instance, are enhanced with a glass breaker or other solid tip which can be used as a kubotan. A kubotan is a compact solid pin which can be used for self-defense. It is an invention from the sixties by Takaykuki, a Japanese karate master. The tip of a kubotan is pointed but not sharp.
