Smith & Wesson recently released their newest pen. You may be wondering, why is Smith & Wesson producing pens. These pens actually have a secondary purpose. They are fantastic little survival or defense tools. The pen has a small ferro rod inside that can be used to create sparks for starting a fire. The butt of the pen can be used as a glass breaker or a small kubiton. And, if you prefer, you can remove the ferro rod portion of the pen and replace it with a key ring making it a great little key ring pen. With all these different functions, it is tough to see why anyone would settle for just a plain old pen. The Smith & Wesson Survival Pens are available in black, stainless (silver) gold, or grey.
