Brian Fellhoelter shook up the EDC gear world with his unique bolt-action mechanism for lights and pens. He's teamed up with CRKT to create the Bolt-Action Pen, part of the company's Ruger line of knives and tools. Aside from its black finish and aluminum body, the CRKT Ruger pen is virtually identical to the original — but more affordable than the $145 starting price of Fellhoelter's TiBolt.

– Fidget-worthy bolt mechanism
– Ultra-lightweight
– Good value

– Ruger branding seems like an afterthought
– Protruding bolt handle may catch on apparel and pocket contents
