Compact Bolt Action Pen

Small, pocketable pens are king when it comes to convenience – the excellent Pen Project project comes to mind – but while they’re well-sized, there’s often a little more fiddling around involved before they’re ready to write in the form of unscrewing caps and the like. The Compact Bolt Action Pen is equally portable despite its slightly larger  length (4 and ⅜ inches, to be exact), and is perfectly geared towards users who constantly switch between carrying the pen in their pocket and jotting down notes on the fly thanks to a rapidly deployable bolt mechanism. Else, it sports a machined aluminum body, weighs only 1.4 ounces, writes underwater, upside down and in space using a PR4 Fisher Space Pen cartridge, and even doubles as a self-defense tool in a pinch.
