The new visco-elastic ink, with a consistency similar to that of very thick rubber cement, flows as a result of the shearing action of the rolling ball in its socket. This shearing action liquifies the solid gel thixotropic ink, allowing the pen to write smoothly and dependably on most surfaces and even under water. Evaporation, wasted ink and back leakage are eliminated. Shelf-life is increased to an estimated 100 years.
On the outside, The Tao 2™ tactical pen appears to be a highly stylized writing instrument. But once the cap is off, it’s a defensive fighting machine just like the former Recon Marine who created it.
Award-winning knife designer Allen Elishweitz from Lenoir City, Tennessee has practiced martial arts over the past 30 years. So he knows how to make even simple things like pens be a potentially lethal aid in self-defense.
Yet this is no simple pen. Crafted from 6061 aircraft grade aluminum the Tao 2™ is a precision-machined writing instrument. It will continue writing in freezing cold, boiling heat, under water and upside down—or help stop a would-be attacker in their tracks. There’s no longer a need to unscrew the cap. An O-ring enables you to quickly take off the cap, post it on the end of the pen and be ready.
The word Tao means the way. And with it in hand it will show you the path to protection.
