Must have for Professors

 Rated 5.0 stars

From Kyle

I purchased this item after being threatened by an angry student in my office. I had no means to defend myself at the time but knew that there were limitations to what I could carry as a professor and do not like carrying a gun for personal reasons. This pen has given me a sense of security because I know I have something at ready access that can help save my life in a drastic situation.
The material quality is amazing. Ive tested the point on several surfaces and it has not dulled at all. As for the writing aspect I adore this as a pen. The ink cartridge suits my cursive style and has not clogged or gotten spotty at all. Also I am an art professor so the fact that the end of this pen could pass as a drawing or writing implement no matter what side the cap is on has been beneficial to me.
The ergonomic nature of the pen is great for me because I am a small man with small hands. Fits perfectly and I do not feel like it would slip out of my hand in an altercation. The weight is balanced making it more easy to recover from a strike. The balance also appeases my ocd so theres that as well.
My favorite part about the pen apart from everything Ive mentioned is the no slip grip on the top of the cap. The rubber with the bumps lets me know where it is in my hand without looking and helps keep my thumb in place.
Overall I would recommend this product to anyone and have bought some for gifts already. I cannot speak enough to the quality and design of this product and was thrilled to have come across it.
P.S. It just looks freaking cool to whip out and use.

Awesome!

This pen is well made and bad@ss. It is lightweight and so easy to carry in multiple places. I would definitely buy again for myself and for a gift for sure.

Great tool!

I use this pen daily and its been the best. I've used the "defensive" side a few times, mostly on glass, and its better than anything I've owned! Its very durable, not too heavy but you feel like you're holding something solid. I carry this with me where I can't carry my EDC.

Thought this pen was tough. I knew it was tough when I accidentally ran it over with my truck and it survived. It has a little spot where the finish rubbed off from the concrete, other than that it is fine. That made me a believer

Double Duty 1.5...No disappoint here!!

I use the pen just like any other writing instrument but it does impart a bit of confidence knowing that it has some serious other uses.

Excellent... almost a perfect 10!

Quick review/impression:

Model: the 5.11 Tactical "Black Double Duty 1.5" Tactical Pen in the matte black finish, much nicer and more 'subdued' finish then the less expensive 5.11 'glossy' finish 1.0 model.
Great moderate palm swell design of the body of the cap end that allows for a very firm/secure grip.
The cap end has a 'flat' thumb platform design covered in a textured TPR (Thermo Plastic Rubber) for superb thumb purchase, allowing for a more power backed and forceful application towards a potential aggressor.
An excellent perfectly sized steel clip.
All threads are superbly and cleanly threaded yielding a completely water tight O-ringed seal.
The defensive stylus tip has a very nice point with four (4) scalloped cutouts tooled into the tip, all four edges of the scallops have rather aggressive edges sort of like a tac. flashlight bezel, but will not cut your clothes.

I chose the 5.11 Tactical Black Double Duty 1.5 Tactical Pen because it's made well, "subdued", not heavy, fat, over built, overly tooled, attention getting rainbow Titanium, red, blue green, striped or polka dot.
It's relatively thin, light and has a design which I prefer... the end cap is a flat shape which gives me superb thumb purchase allowing for greater powerful striking.

I did have to change the default Parker style ink cartridge, as when I tried to write at a horizontal angle (on a note pad against a wall), the ink stopped flowing.... I simply replaced it with a Fisher S.P. refill and it now writes at any angle, in any temperature and through any liquid (as you know).

The only thing I would change regarding it's design is its length as it is 5 ½ inches long, I'd prefer another ½ inch or make it a full 6 ½ inches as is my KZ (Kley Zion) Stinger which gives that extra bit of distance between the operator and potential aggressor.
Overall, I'm very satisfied with the quality of the 5.11 Tactical "Black Double Duty 1.5" Tactical Pen and at below MSRP with which I purchased ... no complaints.

I own several Tactical pens. This one is by far the best to write with and offers great value for money.

From SkinSharp

from Houston, TX

well built pen that has a sharp pointy tip. It can be used as stabbing instrument in defensive situation. However, be careful where you place it because it can make a hole in your shirt pocket or pants. Also don't place it anywhere that will poke you when bending over. Pen writes well.

Excellent... almost a perfect 10!
