Packaging and content:

The Fenix T6 arrives in a small blistered and sealed package with some of its main features imprinted on it. Inside we find:

  • Type-C charging cable
  • Spare O-rings
  • Warranty Card

Main features:

The T6 is a tactical pen made entirely of aluminum. Its main features are to act as a classic writing pen but at the same time to be used as a small EDC flashlight or in emergency situations as a glass breaker.

The body of the Fenix T6 is made of anodized aluminum alloy with a HAIII finish, the same used for flashlights. Its water resistance is given according to the IP66 standard while the drop resistance according to the specifications is only 1m (in my opinion if it were to fall from higher heights I do not think anything serious would happen, on this parameter in my opinion they are kept quite low).



The dimensions are similar to those of a normal 140 x 14 mm pen while the weight is only 33 grams.


The lettering is perfect ...


The central part of the body, as well as the most advanced part of the pen, presents workings by means of knurling as well as a series of deep millings. All this allows you to always have a perfect grip both during tactical use and during writing. If there had been no processing, given the particularly smooth anodized aluminum, it might have been a little difficult to use this pen comfortably.



The Fenix T6 is also equipped with the pocket clip which ensures a good grip on clothing.



As for the function as a writing pen, the Fenix T6 is equipped with a 6.8cm Schmidt brand ink cartridge. These types of cartridges are very common and can be bought practically anywhere. Writing is very fluid and smooth. Schmidt has always produced quality pens. The ball tip is hidden inside the body and comes out simply by turning the front of the pen clockwise.



As we said, the Fenix T6 is also an EDC flashlight for everyday use. In fact, on the side there is a small TIR lens through which it is possible to glimpse a small LED inside. The latter is able to produce, at maximum power, 80 lumens and consnete to illuminate at a maximum distance of 18 meters.



Just below the lens there is a small protruding metal switch that allows the variation of the output levels: it is in fact possible to switch from the 80 lumens of the High level to two other levels of 20 lumen (Medium) and 1 lumen (Low) ideal for illuminating in very short distances.


The beam produced by the T6 torch is totally flood without any visible spot.
Under the small TIR lens there is also a second auxiliary LED that lights up constantly or flashes green or red to indicate the battery charge status. To activate it you need a simple click when the flashlight is off.


In the upper part of the T6, on the other hand, there is the silicon nitride tactical tip that can be used, in an emergency, as a glass breaker.


The Fenix T6 has a 100mAh rechargeable Li-ion battery inside that can keep the torch light on at the Low level for over 26 hours. The Type-C charging port is hidden inside the pen and in order to use it, the body must be completely unscrewed.

Nice review. If it just didn't have the glass-breaker on the top, I'd pull the trigger on this one.
