made in china. nice weight to it but i can already tell due to the quality (or lack thereof) on the manufacturing of the screw/threading mechanisms to unscrew the pen end as well as insert a refill and the way the cap end fits over the pen if intended as a self defense implement, it's not gonna hold up to repeated usage. also not 100% sure as to manufacturer's claim that it's aluminum because it has a heavy weight (own other more $$ similar items that really are fabricated from aluminum and they are of course lightweight but extremely durable).inexpensive enough that i'll keep it rather than return it. would've given 2.5 stars if i could've.
Fellow Shoppers, this Tactical pen conceals the writing part under the blunt end. To find the writing tool, gently grasp the "upper" part ( around the clip ) with one hand, and with your other hand, grasp the "lower" part ( around the pointy metal tip ) - and gently pull apart to find the concealed pen. I had not previously owned one of these pens and started taking it apart using pliers and damaged the black finish in doing so. WARNING !!! Do NOT take pen apart carelessly ! When you have to replace the ink cartridge - unscrew the pen with care. If you are not cautious the pen can fly apart due to the spring in the interior. This happened to me and I almost lost part of the pen and the spring. *** Be sure to point the pen away from your eyes ! *** This pen came with black ink and no instructions. The pen is aluminum and the photo clearly shows the striking tip and clip holder. When uncapped, the pen points away from the metal striking tip. The cap fits will fit snugly over the striking tip and the pen feels nice and balanced in the hand when writing. The pen feels solid and certainly can be used for self-defense.
