For a web-exclusive review of the Benchmade 1100-13 Damasteel pen, go to

The 1100 Series comes in a various configurations: aluminum, stainless steel, titanium, or even pricy marbled Damasteel, as well as with standard blunt tip or sharp carbide glassbreaker. The cap and body provide a secure grip, and a deep-carry clip hides all but the very end of the cap in your pocket. We also appreciate the positive cap retention — it snaps in place with an audible click.

– Deep-carry clip for concealment
– Body texture offers comfort and grip
– Made in the USA

– Stiff pocket clip
– Carbide tip can snag on pocket
– Black anodized finish looks more like dark gray with a subtle purple tint
