The Tao 2 Tactical Pen from CRKT was designed by Allen Elishewitz of Tennessee, a former Recon Marine and martial arts expert who desired a utilitarian pen for every day carry that could also be deployed as a fighting tool in a moment's notice.

The tactical pen is machined from 6061 aircraft-grade aluminum and features a quick-detach cap that is secured by a set of O-rings. Users can secure the cap on the opposite end of the pen via another set of O-rings that ensure that the cap can only be removed deliberately.

The company claims that the Tao 2 Tactical Pen will work in nearly any condition, whether it be freezing cold, sweltering heat or even underwater. Of course, if necessary, the hard construction of the tactical pen allows consumers to use the pen in a defensive scenario without worrying about breakage.

The pen comes in at an overall length of 5.7 inches and features a diameter of just over half an inch. The pen is refillable with a Fisher Space Pen No. PR4 cartridge. The tactical pen comes with one cartridge already installed and includes a zippered nylon carrying case. The Tao 2 Tactical Pen comes in black and gray and retails at a suggested price of $69.99.
