These impact-resistant pens might just save your life

The Collective Carry pens can be used for breaking glass or self-defense.

While the humble ballpoint is great for writing things down on paper, it rarely offers anything more. That’s a shame, given you probably carry one around much of the time. In contrast, the Collective Carry EDC Pens are potential life-savers. Their durable construction makes them perfect for breaking glass or fighting off any attack. You can grab one now for $32.99 at the Popular Science Shop.

These handsome pens are like something from a Bond film. Each pen is constructed from durable 6061-T6 aircraft aluminum. This impact-resistant material can take a surprising amount of punishment and come away unscathed. If you ever find yourself upside down in a vehicle, these pens will get you out. Likewise, you can use the point to strike back against thieves.

The sculpted design of these pens allows them to survive meaty blows. However, the shape doesn’t look out of place in a professional environment. You can choose from nine different styles, and the black ink cartridges are easy to replace. What’s more, each pen weighs just 42 grams.

They’re worth $49.99 each, but you can currently grab a Collective Carry pen for $32.99. Plus, take an additional 15 percent off with code SAVE15 (valid thru 10/29).
