Ok, we all know that I think tactical pens are cool. I mean, they are basically pens designed to match everything else in my EDC Murse of the day.
It used to be that a good quality tactical pen would run upwards of and over $100. That’s not so much the case anymore. Decent tactical pens can now be found sub $10ish to the $80ish range for some nice ones. By today’s standards $40-$50 seems like a sweet spot to find a good one.
Now in all honesty, if you have never heard of 85% of today’s pen manufacturers, it’s probably because they are all just generic companies from China. Maybe even the same factories pumping out multiple brands, who knows?
Take Cool Hand for instance, I mean seriously “cool Hand”. I don’t think much thought went behind that brand name; however, the company is banging out some nifty designs. Yes, I said “nifty”.
Today’s article is on their Carbon Fiber Bolt Action Pen. I mean, I really can’t hate it. And the price is just under $36. Now some of you might say “I would never pay $36 for a pen”. Well, to you all I say, this product category may just not be for you, because I doubt you will find a carbon fiber pen anywhere for less.
