I was choked recently and my dad got me thinking. How would I defend my self without a weapon and without martial arts? Well, my dad showed me a thing called a tactical pen that is a pen with a point on the back end. My dad told me it could be used as a kubotan (Koo-ba-ton). There are several videos on how to use a kubotan for self defense and I found a really good blog on self defense videos that includes the kubotan. Here is a link: http://www.fighter-arts.net/videoblog/ . I had to look around the house for black pens for a project and I came across a silver pen that wrote blue and wasn’t a tactical one. It was tapered on the back to a flat point that makes it look cool over all and is balanced nicely. The pen brand name was a Cross pen and is awesome for writing. The light weight makes it practical for daily carry. Here is a couple pictures of the pen:
The first one is an over view of the pen. The second is the tip and the third is the back. The point goes out if you twist it one way and retracts when twisted the opposite direction. It’s not quite a kubotan or a tactical pen but I love it.
