other features include a stainless steel pocket clip for attaching to your pocket and the likes, a robust push-button mechanism that keeps the ballpoint safely retracted when not in use, and last but not the least, the star of the show, an integrated glass-breaker tip crafted from tempered steel for getting out of bad situations such as breaking out windows, or God forbids, someone’s face. so finally, we now have a reason to start using pens again, eh? you can grab the Gerber Impromptu Tactical Pen off Amazon for just $43.98 ea. steal a few more look in the image gallery below, but be warned, we pretty confident you will be tempted to acquire this manly writing instrument. don’t say we didn’t preempt you.
