RHKP5801004HCRED: Hardcoat Aluminum Investigator Pen, Red

Rick Hinderer Knives

When Rick Hinderer started thinking about a small tactical pen, he wanted to have a pen that is as small as the refill would allow but still have something that you could use to get out of a bad situation if you had too. As you can see, he kept to the basic idea of all of his pens and kubatons with the deep grooves at each end of the body. This pen also has the same longitudinal grooves in the middle portion of the body as the Extreme Duty pen. Even though this pen is shorter and smaller in diameter, you can still get a very good grip on it when striking! This model like all others is also a modular pen. The small bullet on the back of the pen is a separate threaded piece, meaning that you can add all of the other attachments such as the warhead, strike bezel, etc. Uses the Fisher Space Pen Bold refill.


  • Designed and manufactured using state of the art CNC and CAD_CAM technology
  • Properly placed traction grooves give a good firm grip when using pen in a CQB mode
  • Course threads used throughout for extra thread height which translates into a very strong tough thread able to take the punishment of hard strikes
  • Modular design so the user may add a multitude of 17-4 Stainless Steel end attachments to configure the pen however the person or mission dictates
  • Made from Aluminum
  • Type 2 Hardcoat anodized versions in; Red, Blue, Gold, and Green. Type 2 Hardcoat anodizing has a wide range of colors compared to the black and brown colors offered in the tougher type 3. The slight down side is you will see some wear occur on the threads with use compared to the type 3

Pros: Refill Quality, None
Cons: Durability, Overall Quality
Quite Poor
The threads on this pen are either incredibly fragile, or arrived damaged. The screw on cap cannot be attached to the threads on the other end of the pen. Trying to do so will result in the threads being immediately deformed and scraped of their anodizing. The pen also has an irritating rattle whenever you shake it even slightly. This appears to be caused by a mismatch between the size of the pen and the size of the ink cartridge used. What a mess. $55 for this? Don't bother.
