Tuff Writer has been keeping busy and offers yet another variant of their tactical pen design. It looks pretty similar at first, but I think they did some really great changes on this operator series to make it shine. It is closer to the EDC size, only being slightly longer and has a point more like the original Frontline series which is less sharp than the EDC variant. I dig the size as it short enough to allow for easier holding options whether it be a pocket or notebook while still being long enough to be a plausible self defense tool.
Similar to the Frontline series, KnifeArt.com teamed up with Tuff-Writer to create this EDC variant. Looks like they may have taken some of my advice on my original review as this EDC version is based on their "shorty" version. The full Frontline pen is about 6.5" long while the shorty and EDC are 5.75". I'm a fan of the shortened length as it allows for the pen to be stored in more places. The downside is that it is less optimized for defense, but I'd say the vast majority of users will consider this a pen first and a defense tool second.
