Boker Plus
This is a great "pen type" folder by Jim Wagner. It looks just like a writing pen in your pocket with the clip. Dual thumb studs give easy access to the razor sharp small blade and the enc cap is a glass breaker.

With an overall length of 5-2/3" and a blade length of 1-5/8" the Urban Survival offers, though its compact dimensions, an easy to carry and use knife. 4" black aluminum handle. The sleek construction and the scalpel like blade offer the highest control. Includes pocket clip and dual thumb studs. Linerlock mechanism. Weight 1.5 oz. Made in Taiwan.

Cons: Ease of Opening, Blade Sharpness
Boker Plus Urban Survival Pen Knife
Mediocre product: attention to detail would've made it a "5:" sharper blade, larger/smoother pivot + ability to "thumb open" blade w/ one hand. Hollowed-out handle to keep emergency $ or other w/ easily removable glass-breaker end cap would make it "5." Haven't found anything of value/quality similar...

Specific use and not quite designed for it
So as this is meant to be an EDC knife and one for self protection I would want easy concealment, quick deployment to hand and deployment of the blade. Concealment is good, especially like the fake retractable pen top to it (and the nifty tool to attach it). To hand is easy to as very slimline like a thin pen/pencil. The major issue is blade deployment. You really need to ask your aggressor to hold on a moment while you two hand the tiny blade and thumb assist (useless - you need two hands) For something so small you are really looking for the element of surprise which is most definitely lost on this deployment. Any other folder of substance would be better than this for EDC tasks and for self defense.

Wife Loves It
This has been my wife's EDC for 5 years now. ***Unless you expect your attacker to send smoke signals... This is not a defensive tool by any stretch of the imagination. The blade requires a cumbersome and deliberate motion to open. Fine motor skill and dexterity are required for deployment.*** It weighs nothing at all and stays put in the pen pocket of all her purses. She loves it because no one typically even knows she's using a knife. The lockup is outstanding and ergos could not have been better for my hands or hers. The glass breaker gives piece of mind. While the blade has required a few frustrating sharpenings, the tip has stayed in factory condition.
