We love having the opportunity to hand pick, and feature some of best and most interesting things right here on Alt. Anything goes. Today, we're taking a look at a pen. But not just any old ubiquitous pen, a tactical pen. What's the difference you ask? Potentially, life or death. While a tried and true Pilot or Bic pen will undoubtedly serve its respective purpose, a tactical pen on the other hand, could serve you as a defensive weapon in the event of an unforeseen hostile attack. The tactical aspect is what makes all the difference between your tried and true Pilot or Bic pen, and a tactical pen such as this.
Known for its cutting edge knives of all shapes and sizes, Boker has designed an ingenious tactical pen so awesome that we had to feature it on Alt. Meet the Boker Plus CID Cal .45 Tactical Pen. This is a self defense type of pen which features a German designed CNC machined aluminum body with a matte hardcoat anodized finish, and an innovative Bolt Action mechanism. It's the stealthiest, most bad ass looking tactical pen we've seen by far. The only pen with more finesse would have to be some fancy writing instrument from Montblanc. It's also not as expensive as you might have thought. Boker's CID Cal .45 can be had in either black or gray anodized aluminum colors for around $35 a pop.
