We here at Cybernetic Research Laboratories, Inc., located in Tucson, AZ are very excited to share our newest concept with you and are eager to collect the necessary funding in order to take this product into full scale production. We have the machines and everything else required to manufacture this project right here in America, all we need is funding for material and labor.
DESIGNED, MANUFACTURED AND SHIPPED FROM RIGHT HERE IN THE USA!
Tactical Pen is a modern, effective, beautifully designed, precision crafted tool and writing instrument. It is made from the highest quality aircraft-grade aluminum, Stainless Steel, and Titanium. If you ever needed to rely on a pen, this pen would be the one.
The Tactical Pen was designed here in our own facility by Cybernetic Research's design engineers. Using technology and advanced machinery we were able to produce the design into a functional, very useful tool, and we want to share it with you!

The Carbide Tip Glass Breaker is a very handy and operational safety tool. The glass breaker will break a pane of glass easily as seen in the video above, in case of immediate exit from a car or home window if necessary. The Glass Breaker top also makes a great stylus for light engraving on metal. Mark your name on your tools or number your metal plates. Perfect for industry workers or garage machinist.
We designed special knurling in an attractive stepped pattern across the body of the pen offering optimal grip and no slip to the hand in any dry, icy, wet or oily conditions, even with heavy gloves on.
The only pen cartridge high-tech enough for a tactical pen is the Fisher Space cartridge. Why? Because of its usability. The Fisher Space Pen cartridge works in water, in oil, grease, in extreme cold, extreme heat, upside-down, on walls, and even in space! No other cartridge can come close.
The cap of the Tactical Pen secures to either end with soft threads so you won't lose the cap or the pen if your pen is hanging from a lanyard or cargo bag. The end of the cap has a hole for attaching a key ring to allow you to secure your pen to whatever you wish. The back end of the cap was specially design to offer a place for your thumb to put pressure on when using the glass breaker.
Two pens in one
For field work, a large or full-sized pen is not necessary. For this purpose, we designed the pen cap to act as a pen body when needed. Simply unscrew the head of the pen, remove the spring and cartridge and then screw the pen cap on the pen head and you will quickly have a retractable mini-twist pen.
Our company engineers, designs, and produces, with standards that comply with both the aerospace requirements for AS9100 and many of the military specifications (MIL) listed below:

Risks and challenges
We will face manufacturing challenges, including special tooling required to make the pen perfect.
We do not make our own carbide tips or pen cartridges, they are purchased from a US retailer, so any delay on our retailers behalf will in turn delay us. But we don't predict any problems or setbacks because of this.
We will face CNC programming challenges, such as programming the machines to create the pen and all four components fitted with threads to fit and glide smoothly together.
How are we going to overcome it?
We have full time engineers, manufacturing engineers, quality engineers, CNC programmers and design engineers to overcome these obstacles and create solutions that will work every time.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
