    does anyone actually carry self defense pens like the Benchmade 1155
    seen here

    Is $75-$120 really worth it???

    Even if someone actually did carry one of these they would never admit it. :laugh:

    nope...just a aluminum hard barreled, slightly pointed pen, I would imagine for a throat or temple shot in H2H...

    A nice pen is a good thing to have but please. The words combat and tactical (especially tactical) are as over abused as the word extreme. Just marketing nonsense. It’s a nice pen though. A 10 cent sharpened pencil more effectively breaks flesh (though, obviously, not bone) than a pen does anyway. They weren’t intentional tests but they showed me which was more useful. :D

    well now, having said that, I have a Heck of a deal for you all...

    one model1155 BENCHMADE pen in fantastic shape for a limited time, never been fired(or dropped) only written with once (to make sure it was funtional) and it can be yours today for the blockbuster price of 49.95 (+S&H) or save the S&H and go FTF with a concealed weapon permit, ODL, Costco Card and 12 other pieces of ID...It is a Benchmade after all, and the Tactical Model.:p

    You forgot a written bill of sale... You've got the implement use it to cross the "T's" and dot the "I's"

    Sorry, that was so bad I'm having to retest how well a pen breaks flesh on my self right now. :laugh:

    I swear you can sell anything if it's 'tacticool'.

    Don't try taking your 'tactical pen' on a plane. The TSA are working on a nice collection of them and will happily add yours at the security checkpoint.

    I don't know if I'd feel more stupid just spending $120 on a 'tactical pen' or spending $120 and then getting it confiscated!

    I have one.
    Its not so much for combat as to write with. Yes a bic is cheaper but after the first couple stabs its worthless. Come on its plastic.

    This is got a carbide tip not a ball point pen.

    I paid 50 for mine and I carry it every day. Right next to the kershaw leek, with tactical retention loop, in of course TACTICAL BLCAK

    Yes its a Very special tactical thing that only I can get and am forbidden to sell. Unless your a current active duty personnel currently underfire in a war zone. (Friendly fire excepted)

    I carry a sweet pen. It's more strategic than tactical though.
    The Space Pen!

    This thing always works. I've never needed to defend myself with it, but if I did you can bet I'd be able to write all over my assailant, no matter the surface or angle!

    whatever, you can't write with a knife, this is good for the liberal brethan that need to write a "HELP" note!
