Danger has a way of presenting itself when you least expect it. That’s why Gerber, in collaboration with law enforcement professionals, developed the impromptu tactical pen. Sure, it’s a pen and it’ll serve to take notes like a good pen should, but it’s not your average writing implement. Made from machined steel with a tempered window-shattering tip design, the impromptu tactical pen can be used to break a Windshield or defend yourself from an unexpected attack.

Additional Information


This tactical pen is sturdy and strong! Sure to assist you if you should ever find the need to defend yourself or break a window in an emergency situation! It writes well, I personally find the finger grip area uncomfortable for periods of long writing. That said, I didn’t buy this to write a novel, this is more of a personal protection pen! I would also like to see a titanium option to help reduce overall weight.

This pen has been very good in daily use for work and has become part of my every day carry. The pen insert is everything you expect from "write in the rain" and the body of the pen is heavy and quite sturdy.
My one area of concern is the coating that is already wearing a little thin in places.

I also added a drop of thread locker to the end to stop it from unscrewing with use.

Bada$$ pens.
Hefty, well built, writes in all conditions.
Sturdy, reliable, and very stabby.
Excellent for writing your thesis on why millennials are weak a$$ b!tches.
Also GREAT if you need to stab some MF’r in the throat!

A little heavy but I dont mind the weight.Bought it becuase when people borrowed my other self defense pens they needed help with the screw on cap. It well built and solid. pack a good punch. Happy with the purchase.

I like this product. It’s as it’s advertised, although the ink sometimes fade at the first use each time. I wish it was a little bit cheaper.

Great pen

I bought two of these as the first one I bought in black and tried out the glass breaker on some wine bottles after drinking the contents. Compared to the Uzi tac pen, this glass breaker appears to work with less effort/force. However, with both, the black enamel was scratched badly through the edges of the bottle once punctured. Both pens were well designed and actually punctured the glass more than shattering it; but it's to note that I used wine bottles. Against a car or subway window, I would assume it would just shatter on impact. It didn't take much effort and force to puncture through which is definitely a plus in a stressful ISIS situation. This pen writes pretty well. The ink has never failed and writes on first stroke. The quality of the ball point isn't the best, but nothing to complain about unless you're an office nerd with no military experience. I'm glad we had a bunch of bad-ass marines input some design into something useful and non-hipster.

The spring action gets stuck about once every ten clicks, but it sorta adds to the fun of clicking it and hearing that grinding metal click; sorta like coking a round out of the chamber. I like the weight of the pen and everyone surprisingly notices how heavy it is when I loan it to them. It's a blue collar pen designed by our tried and true soldiers. Definitely not designed for pansies so man up and try it out.

Purchased this pen for my husband as a Father's Day gift. The pen is very heavy but is very cool. I think it would make a great gift for any occasion.

realmente las recomiendo, son pesadas pero cumplen con el objetivo, la tinta esta presurizada por lo que nunca falla, asi sea de cabeza o húmeda,

Schwer trotzdem gut zum schreiben geeignet. Trotz der extra Spitze. Clip hat die richtige Spannung.

el peso de la pluma es excelente, si escribe en cualquier posición, recomiendo para táctico, no he probado la punta

Pen is great. Ink ran out after 3 days.
