) Gerber, the leading supplier of knives and multitools to the US Military, is excited to introduce the new Impromptu Tactical Pen. Not your typical writing implement, the Impromptu Pen combines Gerber’s decades of experience crafting tools with input from law enforcement personnel to create a utilitarian tool stout enough to rise to the unexpected call of duty.

Made in the USA and crafted from machined steel, the Impromptu Tactical Pen features a “rite-in-the-rain” ballpoint pen cartridge that is effective in any weather condition and even allows users to write upside down. A stainless steel, rotatable pocket clip keeps the pen handy, while integrated tool steel in the pen’s tip will break glass easily or aid as a personal defense tool.

“The Impromptu Tactical Pen is designed to fit easily into your daily routine. Sleek, ergonomic and just the right size, you can take the Impromptu anywhere you go,” said Andrew Gritzbaugh, Marketing Manager for Gerber. “A tactical pen is a great tool to have on you at all times, especially in the field. During interviews, police officers agreed that many times the most important tool you have is whatever happens to be in your hand, and more often than not it turns out to be a pen. So, Gerber designed a pen that can write in all conditions, easily break glass, and is rugged enough to handle the unexpected.”

The Impromptu includes a reliable push-button mechanism for smooth, easy deployment and as with all Gerber products is backed by the company’s Lifetime Warranty.
