CRKT Tao Tactical Pen is designed to both write well and protect you in case of an unprovoked surprise attack. This powerful Columbia River pen is a custom tactical pen by award winning knife designer Allen Elishewitz, and its 6061 hard anodized aluminum body is tough enough to provide first-rate self defense in a pen that fits in your pocket. The tactical pen is designed to give three levels of self-defense: the impact crown on the cap can be used in a raking or thrusting motion, the pointed pen butt can provide sharp pressure on weak points in your assailant's physique, and the sharp pen point of the Columbia River Tao Aluminum Self-Defense Pen can be used for penetrating soft areas as a last resort. Though the Tao is great for protection, Columbia River Knife & Tool has also designed it to work perfectly well as a writing instrument, with a tungsten carbide ball point tip and thixotropic ink, the same setup developed for NASA that can write at any temperature, upside down, underwater, and almost anywhere else. Protect yourself with a the baddest writing utensil around: the Columbia River Knife & Tool Tao Three-Level Tactical Pen.
