The Best tactical penlight

Pens are tools that we all use every day, at home, in the office, in public offices.

They are products that can be easily carried with you at all times, for example in a jacket pocket, trouser pocket, purse, car or they can be used during trekking excursions to take notes on places of interest on coordinates or to trace route on a map, but can also be used in tactical environments or as self-defense tools. Tactical flashlights often contain universal ink cartridges that can be easily replaced once they run out. This way the pen can be used forever.
