A tactical pen has many functions and gives you the upper hand in situations where ordinary self defense weapons are not allowed. An aircraft-grade aluminum body gives the pen extra weight and makes it useful as a self defense tool. Much like 007 James Bond, a tactical pen conceals itself in broad daylight yet in flash it can be used to neutralize the situation. Another function is as an emergency escape tool. A good quality tactical pen should have a Tungsten steel tip. The steel tip can be used as a glass breaker to escape a sinking car or free someone else.
Can You Take a Tactical Pen On an Airplane?
You shouldn’t have any problem putting a tactical plane in your checked-in baggage but you are not allowed to carry tactical pens on airplanes, no matter how innocent they look. It may pass through unnoticed, but chances are it will be noticed during the security check. Airport security can immediately confiscate anything that appears to be a weapon.
