I would like a recommendation for a pen, and I am opting for
1. A full lightweight metal body (so preferably out of anodized aluminum)
2. Around 6 inches
3. preferably twist (unlike capped)
4. under $30
I have looked at many tactical pens such as the S&W M&P, the surefire pen1, and a few benchmades, and I like the surefire the best. However, it does not fit my price range. Are there any cheaper alternatives to choose from? I am especially looking for a pen that is fully metal with a 6 inch length.
The Fisher space pen has a full metal version. Look around online to find it. It has a down click like a standard clicky pen but has a button on the side to retract. The Fisher refill writes really well and is more secure than most ball point pen inks. I carry one every day for writing on things that my fountain pen just won't work on.
Edit. It may be more than $30 though, my bad, didn't check.
