Tuff-Writer Mini Click Pen


Like the slightly larger Precision Press, the Mini-Click Pen it is entirely modular with each component being easily replaceable and built to last a lifetime. The standard pen utilizes an all metal body machined out of 6061-T6 Aluminum. A clip, pressed out of spring steel and coated for durability and corrosion resistance, helps keep the pen securely fastened and close at hand. Instead of a spacer the pen uses a 2-56 screw threaded into the refill to adjust spacing and allows the pen to accommodate of multiple cartridges (any Fisher or Parker sized refill). The Mini-Click also uses our now famous 416SS machined advancing mechanism for silky smooth and reliable operation (so smooth, it doesn’t even "click"). Finally for grip and comfort, the pen body has removable contrasting black Buna-70 o-rings which assist in maintaining a positive grip on the pen when you need it most.

Tuff-Writer Precision Press Tactitcal Pen

A tactical pen has to be a tactical tool, but first and foremost it has to be easy to use.

I have reviewed a number of tactical pens in this column. As simple as a “tactical pen” seems to be, there are a number of different features and price points on the various products on the market. To date, every pen I have reviewed has a removable cap covering the writing implement. This has never been a feature I prefer in a pen. A tactical pen has to be a tactical tool, but first and foremost it has to be easy to use.

The Precision Press model is a “clicky” pen. The pen tip retracts and extends with the push of a button—like your typical retractable ballpoint pen. The large button works very well, and has a muted clicking sound. You can be ready to write with a simple click—no need to take the time to unscrew a cap or risk losing the darn thing. This is a great feature for the way I use a pen.

As you would expect, this pen is nearly indestructible. It is constructed with an aerospace grade tempered aluminum body, stainless steel tip, and powder-coated spring steel clip. You could drive this pen through a board with a hammer.

The actual writing cartridge is one of the famous “space pen” refills from the Fisher Space Pen Company that is pressurized and will write upside down, underwater, or in just about any temperature range. However, the pen incorporates a spacer that allows for the use of a variety of different refill bands if you prefer something more traditional.

The Precision Press design is very typical of a standard pen. There are no unusually pointed ends or aggressively sharp protrusions. The middle of the barrel is nicely grooved and features rubber O-rings that are both decorative and functional. Of course, there are no logos or brand names to indicate the true nature of this otherwise non-descript pen.

The pen shown is raw aluminum, with no color annodization applied. The raw finish is very attractive and understated. There are also several colors available, including black, red, and digital multi-cam. I like the non-tactical colors, which are great for civilians trying to be low-key and planning to carry the pen as a last ditch weapon.

The Precision Press retails for as little as $85.95, but prices vary a bit across the product line, depending upon the color you select. Tuff Writer pens are made in the U.S.A. and are backed by a lifetime warranty.

If you have any questions about the proper use and application of a tactical pen, I would highly recommend the “Focused Impact: Volume 1” training DVD by Michael Janich. This video features Tuff Writer pens and explains the tactics and techniques for using a tactical pen as a defensive tool. For an additional $29.95, you may consider adding this to your order to be certain you are getting the most out of your Tuff Writer. You may think you understand all the applications of a tactical pen, but I bet you can learn a few things from this excellent 90-minute video.

Sometimes a tactical pen may be all you can carry in a non-permissive environment. When things get tough and your pen is pressed into service as an improvised weapon, a Tuff Writer pen will be up to the task. Not to mention, Tuff Writer pens make excellent writing instruments too!
