Do you have additional info or links you'd like to share?

Most detail is in the attached document. The pen needs to be something that looks equally at home in the board room as on the battlefield. It is a writing instrument first, a work tool second, and a weapon of last resort third. When the unexpected happens the item you are holding in your hand is the most time effective weapon you have and particularly in law enforcement when you are distracted and writing this is when things go wrong. The integrated light frees up the other hand as you no longer have to hold a flashlight, stand in front of the head light or sit in the car in order to see what you are writing.

This pen needs to be designed to be an essential item to have before going on duty, and something you are happy to be seen using or affixing to your uniform.
