FINAL VERDICT: Zanflare F10
If tactical pen is what you want, then Zenflare F10 is a great option. It is strong, sturdy, and easy to operate and works fairly well as a flashlight and a whistle. Off course, it is not without its competitors.
Marvel from Legend will come at a fairly low cost at only Rs. 230. It can be used to write as well. Its downside is that it does not come with a flashlight. So if a flashlight is not your major concern, Marvel can be a great model. Or if flashlight is your concern, there is a pricier alternative to F1 as well from Smith and Wesson. It is constructed from anodised aerospace aluminium which allows it to stay intact even after a fall from 1 metre.
