I have been looking for something like this, excellent overall. It is my EDC for work.
Flashlight had an issue but seller replaced product promptly with no problems. I highly recommend.

I fly with this, it usually makes it through security
I didn’t realize at first that it was what I had ordered. I thought it would be packaged the way the picture showed it. Then I reviewed the directions! Voila! All the parts are there.

Will come in handy as a flashlight and pen when you need it. Breaking glass to get in or out of a car might be a necessity one day.

I have a pen which has an LED light at the writing end for taking notes during an office presentation when the lights are dimmed. I was looking at purchasing similar pens for a couple of EDC packs I'm creating for my adult sons as Christmas gifts when I came upon the Tactical Pen theme. I thought this was more of a novelty until I saw some companies are charging upwards of $80 for tactical pens, which is bonkers knowing how easy it ease to lose pens. Anyways, this unit caught my eye because it was a tactical pen with an LED flashlight as well as a window breaker. The multi-tool I thought was more of a gimmick, and after receiving the pen and looking it over I don't estimate it will ever be used. First off, the box it comes in is gift quality and the contents inside are nicely secured with a dense foam insert. The presentation with the lid off is really nice and anyone receiving this will think it's a quality product. There are batteries already in the unit, plus a spare set in the foam along with ink refills. The light is maybe 10-15 lumens I'd guess...bright enough to find your keys if you dropped them under your seat or whenever you just need to see in a tight space. Push the button once for on, again for strobe, and again for off. Since this is not a bright light, the strobe effect is really not going to do much to disorient anyone you shine it at and I'd prefer the light just turned on and off. But this is a "tactical pen" which means it was designed for defense and emergencies, so if a weak strobe makes you feel better then it's there for you. I checked both sets of batteries and they both function. Since the LED is not that strong I'd expect the light would last a fair while, possibly a couple years or more, if only used for short periods of time when needed. The glass breaker tip is alleged to be carbide. I don't have a way to check this but I'll just assume it's accurate. The housing around the carbide tip looks like steel and is heavy for it's size. The tip itself is very could easily use it as an etching tool on metal or glass. It screws out of the aluminum housing and on the flip side is the multi-tool. The multi-tool really is a gimmik. I could see using the screwdriver tip, but how many screw heads are slotted anymore? They are usually either philips or torque and this would do you no good on those. The bottle opener I'm sure is functional (I haven't tried because again I bought these as a gift and didn't want the paint coating to get compromised), but how often would you actualy use it. The saw blade is completely cosmetic and non-functional and I would not recommend even trying to use it. If you did try to cut something with it the friction would most likely heat the blade up and cause it to bend, or worse, snap in half. The pen writes suprisingly smooth and even. I was hopeful this would be the case and wasn't dissapointed. I did not spend a lot of time writing on different materials or at different angles, but the ink flowed well and didn't smudge. It's nice that refills are included, and I believe they are of a common size that if wanted you could purchase other replacements which are higher end. The aluminum housing feel sturdy and strong. The pieces screw together snugly and have just the right amount of heft to let you know you have something solid in your hand without being fatiguing. The flashlight end doubles as the cap for the pen, which is a nice design in case you need to remove the light to get into small places (it's about 1/2' longer then a AA battery when detached). However, when using the pen you'll need to hold onto the flashlight/cap because it does not attach to the other end. I feel this was a pretty major design flaw as it could very easily be screwed onto the other end (over the glass breaker), however they made the diameters different so they don't match up and there doesn't appear to be any logical reason for this. Rubber o-rings provide a waterproof seal for all pieces the screw/unscrew. The machined aluminum housing is well constructed and feels secure in your hand. The texture would allow for a firm grib even with wet or slick hands. Overall this is pretty long...too long to fit in most pant pockets and definately too long for a shirt pocket. My plan is to attach these to the sides of the EDC bags for my boys so they have quick access to it if needed. Final Impression is I feel for $10 this was a good, functional product. Could it be better? Absolutely but for the money this is a good value for a multi-functional product that will be a solid compliment to an emergency kit, bugout bag, or EDC pack. However I would not want to pay more then I did. This does appear to be a knockoff of a product from a US company that sells for twice as much so make of that what you will (that company does state on their website they use Chinese manufactures to make their product to keep the costs low, and part of the agreements they sign is to give up their intellectual properity to China, knowing full well they will turn around and sell a similar, cheaper version...that's why you see so many rebranded options of the exact same product).
