Smith & Wesson Tactical Survival Pen can do more than write


We’ve seen multi-tools before, but how about a multi-tool that happens to be in the form of a pen? The Smith & Wesson Tactical Survival Pen not only writes like a normal ink pen, but it can break glass and start fires. It’s made of Aircraft Aluminum with a screw off top that exposes a fire striker. You can even replace the cap with a smaller ringed cap, to convert the pen into a keychain sized writing instrument. The Smith & Wesson Tactical Survival Pen is available in several colors and costs less than $29 at Amazon.

    Will it be allowed on a plane?

    Do you seriously see this as your main writing instrument?

    I would love to be a fly on the wall when you are trying to explain a pen that can start a fire, to the TSA.

    TSA has been allowing common lighters in carry-on luggage since August 4, 2007

    TSA specifically forbids small fighting sticks (e.g. “kubotan”). If they decided this is a kubotan (and the Amazon listing specifically lists that as a function), the fact that it’s also a pen probably wouldn’t be enough counterargument.

    Does Q know you have this?
