UZI Tactical Pen

When most people hear the name Uzi the first thing that pops into mind is the lead spitting sub machine gun of the 70′s and 80′s, it’s not likely an image of anything remotely less lethal. However, from the infamous Israeli firearms company comes a line of new age self-defense tools amongst which is the Uzi Tactical Defender self-defense pens. These robust writing utensils combine everyday efficiency with compact self-defense effectiveness. Modeled with respect to the martial arts kubaton weapon, these self-defense pens are great for concealment and ready for self-defense at a moment’s notice. Crafted from aircraft grade aluminum, these pens are created to withstand a beating and deliver one at the same time. There are two models available from the Tactical Defender series, the TACPEN 1 & TACPEN 2. The TACPEN 1 flaunts a jagged metal crown which can be used for gouging and stabbing, the crown can collect DNA evidence in the event that it is used in a close quarter combat situation and scratches off a piece of the assailant’s skin. The TACPEN 2 sports a pointed edge which can be used for targeting an assailant’s pressure points and delivering precise strikes, but also doubles as a glass breaker in emergencies. Both models measure roughly 6 inches in length, come with a one year warranty, and accept the standard Parker style, Schmidt and Fisher Space pen refills. This Less Lethal Alternative is available at many online retailers such as Amazon.com.

Schrade Tactical Pen

The next less lethal alternative to be featured on this site comes from an American cutlery company called Schrade. The SCPEN4BK is one of their tactical pen models designed for practical use as well as self defense use as a striking tool similar in function to a kubotan. Self defense applications include striking boney parts of the body such as the skull, hand, collar bone, and floating ribs. It can also be used to manipulate pressure points to force compliance of none compliant subjects. As comfortable in the office as it is in the field, this survival pen can be used as a window breaker, an emergency whistle and includes a fire starter. The durable aluminum body means it can take the abuse of every-day carry. This pen DOES NOT include or conceal a knife blade. The Schrade survival tactical fine point pen is CNC machined with 6061 T6 black aluminum body. It features a removable ferro rod and storable striking plate which increases the pen’s uses from practical use and self defense to survival in the field. The pen features a survival whistle cap and has a pocket clip for versatile carrying options. Due to the item’s size it can be carried and stored just about anywhere. The pen holds one black Starminen Fine Point D1 pen cartridge. The items dimensions measure 5.90 x 0.50 x 0.40 Inches.

Scorpion 200

All you regulars to Less Lethal Alternatives know that I like to review cool items and unique self-defense tools that are available to us in our everyday lives, if this is your first time to the blog then let me say welcome! I  was recently cruising several sites and channels on the infinite expanse of the internet and came across an item worthy of mention. At first glance the Scorpion 200 looks like your average everyday touch stun gun, but this clever device packs a one two punch that you might not see coming. As many of you know stun guns typically work via pain compliance, that is the target being stunned is deterred from attacking due to the pain delivered from a stun gun. However, one of the draw backs of a touch stun device or drive stun device is that you actually need to be close enough to make physical contact with a potential threat. This is one reason why projectile stun guns such as the Taser and Phazzer devices are preferable because they allow you to engage a target from fifteen plus feet away. The Scorpion 200 provides a similar advantage, although it does not project any electric stun darts. The Scorpion 200 is a self-defense multi-tool in that it provides the capabilities of 200,000 volts of stun power plus the blinding effects of pepper spray in one easy to use tool. The pepper spray can reach out to six feet and blind an attacker while the jolt of 200,000 volts will temporarily incapacitate and deter an attacker. This device is used by some European police agencies and manufactured in Eastern Europe. I have only been able to find this item for sale on a few U.S. based websites such as newedgegifts.com and expandablebatonsandmore.com it retails for about $100.00.

Kinda a cheesy video but it demonstrates the unit. See below.

The Punch

This next item on the discussion board was debatable as to if it should be on a less lethal site, because this bad boy delivers a nasty PUNCH! The Punch by United Cutlery is a wicked and compact self defense tool that is literally a sharp spike. Like a Kubaton, this item is meant to be carried on your keychain but many other reviews that I’ve seen about this item suggest that it may be a little big for that. Regardless, this item will easily fit in your pocket or handbag. This is a two piece unit, the spike and cap. The cap protects you from the sharp end while the unit is not in use, but pops off in a split second when needed. The spike measures just over a half inch and the overall length is 5 1/4 inches, with a few quick jabs from this menacing tool your attacker will surely get the point that you are not one to be messed with. The handle is made of impact resistant plastic and has a nice rigid fan shape on it’s end to allow for a firm grip when needed. The Punch will leave your attacker running home to mommy as if he were the one who just got bullied. This unit used to be available at several online vendors, but I think it has been discontinued. If you’re lucky you can probably still find this on the web, but it may require some digging on different sites. On a personal note I have one of these units that I carry with me where ever I go, it’s so light and slim that I hardly notice it in my pocket.
