Contest: Win a Tactical Pen from Tuff Writer

By Phil Bourjaily

Those of you old enough to remember TV in the 60s may recall a series of Bic commercials in which the ballpoints were tortured in various ways, including being shot out a gun and fastened to the heel of a flamenco dancer.

The people who make the Tuff Writer, a tactical pen, have come up with a sales gimmick in the grand tradition of the Bic ads. It’s silly, but we liked it so much we contacted Tuff Writer and got a pen--an $80 pen, I might add--to give away so we can play along.

Tuff Writer has challenged Blend Tec to blend one of their pens. If you are not already aware of the Blend Tec, it’s a high-end blender that generates uncommon amounts of torque and power. If you wanted to make a coconut milk daiquiri without bothering to crack the coconuts first, you could throw them in the Blendtec whole. In a series of “Will it Blend?” internet spots, the Blendtec grinds up all kinds of things, including an iPad (see below). Tuff Writer wants their turn in the blades.

However, Blend Tec isn’t returning Tuff Writer’s calls. So, Tuff Writer is setting aside money from the price of every pen they sell until they can buy their own Blendtec and try blending a pen. It will be a classic meeting of irresistible force vs. unmovable object.

To win one of these pens for yourself, all you need to do is write a suggestion in the comments section below describing the best way to test the toughness of the Tuff Writer until they save up enough for a Blend Tec. And be aware that web editor Dave Maccar is doing the judging, and that Maccar has a twisted sense of humor.

Win this pen and you will be the first on your block to be armed and ready to defend yourself while signing for packages, crossing items off your grocery list, or just sitting at home doing the Times Sunday crossword in tactical ink.

I suggest putting it through the radiator fan of a Pay-loader Bulldozer or a V8 Engine at best, blend tech is kindergarten compared to a radiator fan.

I think you should put the pen in the blender all by itself so you can see just how strong the pen is compared to the blender. I am sure the pen will win.

Give it to any Law Enforcement Officer for thirty days... If the pen can handle being thrown to the ground and stomped on by angry citizens who don't want to sign their tickets, being used to break windows, and being dropped and then run over by your patrol vehicle.... Then it passes the test!

I NEED a pen that will last longer than a week...

Test the pen how they test broadheads for TV commercials. Find or manufacture some kind of Tuff Writer launcher and launch them into ballistics gel, with or without a shoulder blade of a deer of course and maybe a few other test medians.

Put the pen in/on the tracks of a dozer (D7 or bigger) and drive on black top or concreate and see how the pen holds up.
You could also put 3 or 4 blasting caps (or other explosive, like rolled up sparkelers) on it and blow it up. That would be cool to.

Drop it off in some of the harshest environments in the world with only a knife going head to head with Bear, Dave, and Cody and see which one makes it "back to civilization" first.

Step 1: Tape the pen to a propane tank (Size depends on how crazy you are) with camo duck tape.

Step 2: Grab your highest caliber gun (Mine is a 30/06) or Shot Gun (Mossberg 500) with slugs.

Step 3: Shoot pen (should cause and explosion...if accurate should hit pen)

Step 4: Recover Pen...then write a letter to field and Stream saying Mattyk just won himself a "yough as nails" pen.

If this works, I will make a video of this process...

Place the pen on railroad tracks and let a train roll over it. Then drop it from an airplane onto concrete from 5000 feet. Next, tie it to the deck of a nuclear submarine (Boomer) and take it on a 6 month cruise. After that take it to a steel mill and run through thier 450 ton hammer forge, a couple of times.Should test it out pretty well and make a point. A period point!

Speaking of the TSA, I went to their website, and apparently tactical pens are on the list of items that will get you in big trouble if you try to get one past what we laughingly call security. At the least you'll have it confiscated and get your name on The List; at the worst you can get a summons for carrying a concealed weapon, depending on what kind of jerks they want to be that day.

One more before the brain shuts down. The gov't ran some crash tests on shipping castes for transporting nuclear wastes. One of them, if you saw the video, used a rocket powered diesel locomotive and ran it into a shipping caste on a flatbed truck positioned over the tracks. Attach the pen to the front coupler of the locomotive, light the fuse and run!! (better run pretty fast because they used some pretty beefy rockets to get a 200 ton loco. going) It wouldn't be the cheapest test to run, but it would look pretty cool.

Take a page from bullet testings... fire it out of an air cannon fit to the diameter of the pen into different barriers (ex. drywall, sheet metal, cinder block, etc.)and measure the functionality after the tests as well as any decrease in length/ width and lastly weight retention. My guess is that it will act nothing like a bullet but stranger things have happened.

At work, we've occasionally, um..."tested" items like two-way radios, wrist watches, and rakes by running them through the log chipper. It does a good job of "blending" pretty much anything. It can be hard on a $900 radio.

However, I think that you need to be "true to the pen." Even if it's also a kubaton, it is primarily a pen, and I think you should, naturally, match it against a sword. I'm picturing a scene from one of Lynn Thompson's (sp?) Cold Steel videos with the pen as the target. If you capture the particular poise and diction of those videos (which, as much as I love them, are almost satires of themselves), you could make hundreds of us spurt coffee over our keyboards. ...and I have a guess at which might prove mightier.

Place the pen on railroad tracks and let a train roll over it. Then drop it from an airplane onto concrete from 5000 feet. Next, tie it to the deck of a nuclear submarine (Boomer) and take it on a 6 month cruise. After that take it to a steel mill and run through thier 450 ton hammer forge, a couple of times.Should test it out pretty well and make a point. A period point!

One more before the brain shuts down. The gov't ran some crash tests on shipping castes for transporting nuclear wastes. One of them, if you saw the video, used a rocket powered diesel locomotive and ran it into a shipping caste on a flatbed truck positioned over the tracks. Attach the pen to the front coupler of the locomotive, light the fuse and run!! (better run pretty fast because they used some pretty beefy rockets to get a 200 ton loco. going) It wouldn't be the cheapest test to run, but it would look pretty cool.

At work, we've occasionally, um..."tested" items like two-way radios, wrist watches, and rakes by running them through the log chipper. It does a good job of "blending" pretty much anything. It can be hard on a $900 radio.

However, I think that you need to be "true to the pen." Even if it's also a kubaton, it is primarily a pen, and I think you should, naturally, match it against a sword. I'm picturing a scene from one of Lynn Thompson's (sp?) Cold Steel videos with the pen as the target.
