Rick Hinderer Knives are known for quality materials, craftsmanship and attention to detail so when they started to thinking about a small tactical pen, they made one that was just bigger than the refill it carries.
This Investigator Pen is machined from stainless steel and is coated in DLC black. It features deep grooves at the end of each body with longitudinal grooves in the middle portion--these grooves allow for a strong grip, even for a pen that is only 4.25" long. Designed and manufactured using state of the art CNC and CAD_CAM technology, the titanium pocket clip allows you to clip it to your shirt pocket or small EDC notebook. At 0.5 ounces in weight, it disappears into your pocket while still giving you enough heft to comfortably use it.
As a tactical pen, this DLC Black Investigator has a modular design. The included 17-4 Stainless Steel strike bullet adds "decoration" for day-to-day use, but can be a back-up defense tool (or a primary defense tool in a highly regulated, non-permissive environment). Course threads used throughout for extra thread height translate into a very strong, tough thread able to take the punishment of hard strikes. The strike bullet can be screwed off and replaced with other options, allowing you to customize your pen.
The Hinderer Knives Investigator Pen is available in multiple variations:
