Although not the most versatile multi-tool we’ve laid eyes on, the APEX BOLT Tactical Pen seems to get a couple of things done but it does them right! In addition to being able to write in virtually any conditions, the solidly-built pen doubles as a screwdriver and glass breaker.
Arriving in durable titanium & aluminum finishes, the pen features a bolt action mechanism that securely locks it in position while also providing fidgeters out there with a fun and simple tactile enjoyment. A pocket-safe ceramic ball bearing tip lets you break glass in case you ever need to (or defend yourself in close combat) and a removable pocket clip makes for easy fastening.
The pen’s rugged and ventilated body is said to boast an improved ergonomic grip and balanced weight distribution, but its most notable highlight is a hidden hex bit socket that’s revealed as you unscrew the end cap.
What’s more, APEX BOLT’s brass ink cartridge is the Fisher Space Pen refill that, besides lasting three times longer than an ordinary ballpoint, it can also “write in zero gravity, underwater, over wet and greasy paper, at any angle, and from -30 °F to 250 °F!”Preorder from Kickstarter $60
