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.

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

Prohibited imports.

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