Impromptu Tactical Pen
Danger has a way of presenting itself when you least expect it. That’s why Gerber, in collaboration with law enforcement professionals, developed the Impromptu Tactical Pen. Sure, it’s a pen and it’ll serve to take notes like a good pen should, but it’s not your average writing implement. Made from machined steel with a tempered window-shattering tip design, the Impromptu Tactical Pen can be used to break a windshield or defend yourself from an unexpected attack.
Multiuse, Made in the USA
The Impromptu Tactical Pen combines Gerber’s decades of experience crafting tools with valuable input from police officers to offer a utilitarian tool that could quite literally be your ticket to safety. During interviews, officers agreed that the most important tool you can carry is the item that happens to be in your hand, which more often than not turns out to be a pen. So Gerber designed a pen that can write in all conditions and is rugged enough to handle the unexpected. This USA-made, push-button pen features a “Rite in the Rain” ballpoint pen cartridge that is effective in wet and dry conditions, and the tool’s machined steel body is stout enough to rise to the unexpected call of duty.
Fits Your Daily Routine
Sure it’s stout, but it fits easily into your pocket like an ordinary pen and will become part of your daily routine, on the job and off. Whether you’re in your vehicle or responding to a call in the field, it’s easy to make the Tactical Pen part of your routine equipment. But unlike an ordinary ballpoint pen, this one will be there when you need more than just a writing implement.

Got this as a gift, great pen solid exterior. Be careful when disassembling to replace the cartridge, mine got jammed up with the spring in the nose and I had to use my Leatherman (oops) to extract the cartridge and repair my pen. The idea is good the parts inside are a bit weak and the threading for the cap could be improved.
Picked up one and love it. The rite in rain ink is amazing. Great pen for my job!
Wish it had a better ink cartridge. I dropped the pen in the grocery store last night and it won't write another letter, now I can use the pen as a doorstop until I find a suitable replacement cartridge.
I can't find refills. It writes great! It's tough on polyester pockets.
Is there any chance Gerber will make this in titanium? If so, I would buy several.
should be a gift from Gerber to all military personnel
This is the P-E-N ever ! I luv the look and style how it is uncanning to the human eye !
ANY PEN COLLECTORS WOULD DIE TO HAVE THIS ONE KEPT FOR SAFE-KEEPING !
love this pen, should make one in titanium.
I wanted to like this pen, I really did... But it is FAR too heavy for anything approaching regular use. Just writing a signature is exhausting, let alone anything approaching rapid note-taking. Yes---it is incredibly tough, and, Yes--it would probably come in handy in a self-defense/escape from car scenario. However, the cumbersome weight simply outweighs(!) any potential value.
I like the slickness of the pen, but how does the ink work and is it durable?
I got this pen as a gift and I love it. built to last through any punishment. Very smooth operation and writing. Glass breaker is nice and also can be used as a scratch all or etcher.
Wish it had a blade in it somewhere and maybe a place for engraving
I stumbled across this pen while looking at Multi-Pliers, so I ordered it & WOW this thing is built like a tank, exceeded my expectations!
Refills are available from many suppliers, which is good, too.
If anyone asks to borrow it...the answer is NO!
