SureFire’s Newest Writing Instrument Features More Aggressive Styling on a Sleeker Body
Fountain Valley, CA –-(AmmoLand.com)- SureFire, LLC, manufacturer of high-end illumination tools and tactical products, has released the third model in its line of precision writing instruments created by the company’s Edged Weapons Division.
The SureFire Pen III, like its two predecessors, was designed and built to be both a high-quality writing instrument and a rugged tool that can provide an advantage in case of an emergency.
“Pen III is sort of a hybrid of our other two pens,” said Steve Ryan, director of SureFire’s Edged Weapons Division. “It was designed to give the benefits of a tactical pen with a more convenient ‘clickie’ mechanism for law enforcement officers and those who are using a pen every day.”
The durable Pen III is precision hewn by CNC machines from high-strength aerospace aluminum, which is as strong as steel but substantially lighter. Its aluminum body is hard anodized with a Mil-Spec Type III finish (available in black or tan) that’s chemically grown onto the aluminum surface and is nearly as hard as diamonds. A stainless-steel tip, tailcap, and pocket clip accent the pen’s aluminum body.
Pen III comes standard with a Schmidt easyFLOW 9000 ink cartridge, which provides a smooth, effortless writing experience, but it also accommodates “Parker-sized” replacement cartridges. The retractable tip is extended and retracted by pushing/clicking the stainless-steel tailcap pushbutton. Compact and lightweight (only 5.8 inches long and 1.7 ounces in weight), Pen III is designed to fit in a pocket, briefcase, or stitched-in pen-holders found on many military and law enforcement uniforms. The heavy-duty steel pocket clip, with plenty of retention, ensures that the pen stays securely in place.
“We make a very, very durable product for those who go in harm’s way,” said Ryan, summing up SureFire’s philosophy in designing and manufacturing pens, as well as everything else the company produces. “It’s something that really shows off SureFire as a company.”
The SureFire Pen III retails for $115 and is available for purchase from authorized SureFire dealers or directly from SureFire by visiting www.surefire.com or calling 1-800-828-8809.
