The Tuff-Writer Frontline ($96) pen fits nicely with any survival EDC with its ability to write anywhere, in any condition. A hermetically sealed thixotropic ink cartridge that’s pressurized to 35 psi, ensures this Excalibolígrafo will write at altitudes of up to 12,000 feet. It’s also functional in temperatures ranging from negative 35–250° F, meaning you can write out your dying wish no matter where you get stranded. Should you want to go full-Bourne on an attacker, the Tuff-Writer’s hardened sharp and rounded edges also make it an effective close-quarters weapon. Oh, and we’re told it writes nicely too.
