    As the name implies, if it is not shave related - but still pretty cool - tell us about it here.

    Pics even better!

    I did indeed get something cool!
    Steel Will mini intrigue :)
    Nice little cheap D2 steel flipper, also has cool blue anodised stand-offs.

    I’m interested in what makes a pen ‘tactical’

    I’m regretting it already. If it’s something ridiculous like it can be used as a weapon I’ll be sat saying “with a fucking pencil, who the fuck can do that” in a Russian accent all day.

    No idea who considers them to actually be useful, however they typically are;
    -Heavy (often too heavy)
    -Pretty
    -Offer a pointy tip of some description as a glass breaker.
    -Almost invariably use a space pen refill.
    -ideal for high speed, low drag operators such as myself.
    I like pens so I agreed to take a look but the TWSBI Eco is my current favourite pen FWIW.

    Flipper? Like flick - which I thought was illegal? Well that's what customs said about one knife I tried to import anyway.

    Nope, your flip knives like the balisong remain illegal I think (haven’t checked as im not coordinated enough to use em anyway) but the flipper is just a one hand open, Applying pressure to the flipper tab allows you to overcome the detent and the knife flys open totally unassisted.

    Mil Spec - can be used to pen a treatise, or put through someones throat while doing 'recco' in a silent take down I'm guessing.

    Prohibited imports.

    Exception if you have a letter from your state police commissioner for the specific article.

    Thing I love about em is that they run on washers rather than bearings and the action is awesome!
