    Product Description
    The Tuff-Writer pen was designed to be the toughest pen out there, period. It is built to withstand blistering cold, intense heat and any kind of harsh environment an operator is bound to encounter.

    The thixotropic ink in the hermetically sealed cartridge and pressurized to nearly 35 psi lasts three times longer than a standard ballpoint pen. With an estimated shelf life of 100 years, the pen writes at altitudes up to 12,500 feet where most other pens simply won't. Best of all, no matter how harsh the conditions your Tuff-Writer will work with operating temperatures from -30 to 250 degrees Fahrenheit (-35 to 120 degrees Celsius).

    Designed with a sharp as well as rounded end, it can effectively be used as a take anywhere defensive implement or control device. The smoothly finished point also doubles as a PDA stylus device. The external knurling and slightly upward tipped spring steel clip allow an exceptionally low slip grip while not snagging during deployment or holstering. The Mil-A-8625 “F” black anodizing over a machine finish provides a rock hard surface finish while the laser engraving boldly exhibits the Tuff-Writer logo and individual pen serial number on one side and proudly displays the made in the U.S.A. label on the other.

    Exactly! I am building a "sniper" setup for my newly acquired Remington 700 and wanted a pen that could stand up to the elements.

    Have you got to manipulate this yet? I've been wanting to pick one up for a while, but I go through pens like crazy. From letting people use them to write information down to leaving them at work after writing my report, I don't want to be loosing a $80 pen. Guess I could lanyard it to myself. :lol:

    It's got a blunt tip so I don't see why not. Then again this is the same DHS that says more than 3 oz of shampoo is dangerous.

    I don't see any reason you wouldn't be able to get through security with it but you never know.

    The Tuff Writer Frontline Series Tactical Pen has earned a spot in my pocket as one of my everyday carry (EDC) items. This pen does more than anyone could actually ask for out of a pen. The Tuff Writer Frontline Series Tactical Pen goes beyond even the most extreme expectations of a pen. It is not only tough as nails but it looks great and writes even better due to its Fisher cartridge. As a bonus the Tuff Writer Frontline Series Tactical Pen also doubles as a defensive weapon; god forbid a situation arises at least you won't be unarmed with one of these in your pocket. I have to be able to rely on my EDC items to work no matter what the situation and the Tuff Writer Frontline Series Tactical Pen fits the bill. If anyone is looking for a pen that can withstand abuse day in and day out then look no further!

    This is a gas pressurized ball point cartridge refill utilizing waterproof ink. Because of the pressurized cartridge, these refills will write upside down, right side up or any combination in between. They are designed to work in frigid cold and blistering heat and will function in environments ranging from -30F to 250F.

    I have to say that these pens are mighty attractive to a guy like me!

    If you haven't used a pen that incorporates the Fisher SPR4 ink cartridge you just don't know what you're missing. You can write on damp paper towels, in the cold, on plastic... they are just awesome. And I love that the pens have the Made in USA factor.

    Thanks for the pics and write-up.
