When most people think of personal protection, they typically think of a knife or handgun. However, the truth is that sometimes the pen is mightier than the sword, and in the case of the ABP Tactical Pen, protecting yourself has never been easier. Read our full review to learn about why the ABP Tactical Pen should be a tool you carry with you always.

Using the ABP Tactical Pen
You might be a bit confused on how you actually are supposed to use the ABP Tactical Pen. It’s fairly simple though. Below is a video explaining what the tactical pen is, how to grip it, and how it can protect you.
The key points you want to remember are:
- Look for strike points like the thigh, knee, groin, neck, ribs, or throat
- Hold the pen like you would a knife
- Protect your hand by covering it with a cloth or shirt if you need to break glass
On the official website, there are several testimonials from real individuals who use the ABP tactical pen each day. David, a police officer from Michigan claims the ABP tactical pen is “a high quality instrument” and he ended up buying several for his family so they feel safe.
Another man, Bruce from Texas, got the tactical pen for his brother as a gift. He claims the ABP pen is a “well thought out device” and he plans on buying several more for stocking stuffers this holiday season.
We recently received an ABP Tactical Pen and put it to good use. We tested out the pen in various situations and here’s what we think:
ABP Tactical wasn’t kidding when they said their pen could break through even the strongest glass. We tested the tactical pen on various glass surfaces (windshield, regular window, etc.) the pen had no problem breaking through. Admittedly, it did take a few attempts to shatter through thicker glass, but that was be to expected.
At first it was a little weird to hold the tactical pen, but after getting some instructions, we realized how versatile this tool could be. A knife is difficult to hide, and a knife is much larger and harder to wield than this tool. The tactical pen from ABP was designed for a quick strike and after some time, it was clear this tool was pretty useful in a pinch.
Overall, our experience with the ABP Tactical Pen was a pleasant one. We wouldn’t typically find a tactical pen be a life changing tool, but after experiencing it for ourselves, we can see how very useful this tool is, especially if you’re in law enforcement, in the military, or live in a risky neighborhood.
According to the official website, the pen costs $19 for one pen, although discounts are given for multiple purchases. For example, you can grab 3 of these bad boys for $55, or 5 pens for $79. Given the versatility and usefulness of these pens, we’d definitely recommend buying a few of these for your family.
