Self Defense Tactical Pen Review: ApeSurvival Strikepen Black

The self defense tactical pen from ApeSurvival called the “Strikepen Black” gives you by far the best multi-functional, all-including pen from all the self defense tactical pens for sale (including the other pens we reviewed). It comes with some innovative features which none of the other self defense tactical pens possess.

No wonder this is the most popular self defense tactical pen out there…

Read along our ApeSurvival Strikepen Black review after its picture to see all its features and where it stands against competitors.

ApeSurvival Strikepen Black Materials

Body material

The ApeSurvival Strikepen Black consists of an alloy body which has been precision milled into shape. This means that all the outer components have been cut into shape, starting with a single piece of alloy material.

This method of manufacturing the body piece makes it a lot stronger than when different components would have been connected to each other to form the base of the body material.

Now, ApeSurvival doesn’t give the exact composition of the body material, but it certainly is a very lightweight and sturdy body so you won’t have to worry about breaking it any time soon, which is all that matters in our opinion. Sure it would have been nicer of them, sharing some details about it, but stil…

Body colors

This part of the ApeSurvival Strikpen review is pretty straight forward because it comes in just one color: black.

Most of the self defense tactical pens for sale come in only one, sometimes three colors (with an exception for the Benchmade Tactical Pen), so this isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

Still, it might have been nicer to be able to choose from at least some colors, but the ApeSurvival Strikpen has a very good looking matt black finish which doesn’t seem to scratch easy, so we’ll have to deal with that…

Glass Breaker Pen Tip/Strike Pen Tip

All decent self defense tactical pens come with a strong metal tip intended to strike objects, or an opponent, sometimes referred to as a strike pen tip. It probably doesn’t come as a surprise that the ApeSurvival Strikepen Black has one as well…

Usually, the metal tips are strong enough to break glass (hence, the name glass breaker pens). Since the ApeSurvival Strikepen Black has a tungsten steel strike tip, you won’t have to worry if it’s able to do it’s job. The tungsten steel tip from the ApeSurvival Strikepen Black has no problem striking an opponents or car window.

So, whatever situation you’re in, the tungsten steel tip of the ApeSurvival Strikpen may just get you out of trouble…

Pocket clip

The pocket clips of self defense tactical pens should be sturdy, as all the body parts should be. However, although the ApeSurvival Strikepen has a very decent pocket clip, it’s not as sturdy as the other self defense tactical pens that we’ve reviewed…

It really still is very decent, but since it has been “bolted on” instead of “integrated” to the body, it may snap off sooner than the other self defense tactical pen clips would do. It just has a little bit more of a “cheap” feeling to it so the speak…


Since we’re talking about a pen here, reviewing the writing part of the pen probably shouldn’t be left out…

Now, with some self defense tactical pens you can hardly write. Luckily that’s not the case with the ApeSurvival Strikepen Black. Since it isn’t as heavy as some of the other self defense tactical pens out there, it feels quite like a normal pen.

Of course, it still is a bit heavier than a regular ballpoint, but it really isn’t impossible to handle… What actually is the same as a regular ballpoint, is the ink. Were some other self defense tactical pens use a special ink to be able to write in the worst conditions, the ApeSurvival Strikepen Black doesn’t. It just has a very basic ballpoint ink pattern.

With some self defense tactical pens, you can choose between different ink colors, usually black or blue. With the ApeSurvival Strikepen Black it’s fairly simple, you can’t choose. However, considering the great additional features, it’s no big deal in our opinion…


ApeSurvival Strikepen Black Extra’s

Claim your free "ApeSurvival Strikepen" with lots of extras now after you've read the review about this special and best self defense tactical pen for sale.Ok, so far, the ApeSurvival Strikpen may just sound like a decent self defense tactical pen, but nothing spectacular.

Fortunately, the above described parts of the Strikepen Black isn’t everything that ApeSurvival put into it.

It seems like ApeSurvival wanted to take things up a notch by adding some features which none of the other best self defense tactical pens for sale have, leaving the competitor pens far behind in our perspective…

LED Flashlight

Yes that’s right, the Strikepen Black is equipped with quite a bright LED flashlight which turns out to be a very useful tool.

Alright, we understand that adding a flashlight to a pen might not seem like something special, but ApeSurvival turns out to be the only manufacturer who managed to incorporate it into an actual decent self defense tactical pen. In fact, none of our the other self defense tactical pens from our top 5 has one…

Interchangeable Knife and Multi-tool

In addition to the bright LED flashlight, the Strikepen Black also includes a small knife and a small multi-tool which can be screwed into the pen. We guess, ApeSurvival decided to really shake it up a little more…

And again, these parts aren’t some crappy thing that will break in an instant. Ow no, the small knife is extremely sharp and can handle some stress. The same goes for the multi-tool, although not designed to be as sharp as the interchangeable knife, it can certainly get you out of trouble.

The interchangeable multi-tool consists of no less than 4 parts: a flat head driver, a HEX wrench, a bottle opener and a knife. Yes, also a knife..

Since the interchangeable multi-tool includes a knife and 3 additional very useful tools, we recommended mainly using the interchangeable multi-tool instead of the interchangeable knife. You may choose not to of course, it just depends on your needs really.

Pen + Accessories case

Nice of ApeSurvival is to ship the Strikpen with all its extra’s in a black carboard case. If you’re going to use this pen on a daily basis, you’ll probably only use it to store the components you’re not using at the moment, but still. Not all self defense tactical pens for sale are shipped in a case…


Ok, so far, we’ve covered all the Strikepen Black features, so it’s time to talk about its costs and if it’s worth the price.

Now, if you’re like us before we came across the ApeSurvival Strikepen Black and you’ve also seen the prices of some of the other self defense tactical strike pens for sale, you may think the Strikepen Black with all its features has to be part of the the expensive category of self defense tactical pens out there…

However, the contrary is true though.

Because, to crown it all…

Now, you might think this is some kind of joke or scam, but it’s not.

You see, ApeSurvival is giving away their Strikpen as part of their National Survival Awareness Campaign, claiming that their goal is to:

“Educate and inform American families and provide them with the tactics to survive natural disasters and terrorist attacks plus improve self-defense and wilderness skills.”

Furthermore, we are familiar with the other impressive products from ApeSurvival and they probably also see this Strikpen giveaway as a good way of promoting their survival shop…

    Got mine delivered last week & the products did get here pretty darn fast. I actually just opened the package today (along with the awesome little flashlight) & man this thing would be a wicked little weapon!!!! LOL…… I LOVE this! It is perfect for women as I will be carrying this in my purse & perfect size to hold in your hand also.
    However mine was missing a little blade & no big deal, & I am sure they will get one to me as soon as I call them & or write them & let them know as soon as I get done here. 🙂
    They seem to be of very good quality & I will do updates later.
    Thanks for having great products that are capable of several tasks, but mostly for safety reasons!
    Sincerely Julia B.

    Hello would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

      Hey Francesco,

      Nice to hear you like the design of my site. I’m using WordPress. I’ve tried a couple of different platforms, but for a blog I would highly recommend WordPress. It’s easy to install, easy to edit to your taste, easy to use, there are tons of themes and plugins and there’s great support if you need any help.

      Hope it helps. Good luck!
