County Comm Embassy Pen (Rev. 2) Black

Reminiscent of a police baton, County Comm's Embassy Pen (Rev. 2) Black is a stylish, formidable looking tactical defense writing instrument.  At 13 cm capped, it is of average length, its styling simplistic, with clean lines, sporting a sturdy aluminum pocket clip, a knurled grip section occupying its bottom half, incorporating integrated grip rings in this area.

Below lies the tip crest housing area that unscrews to separate the upper and lower sections of the barrel.  When deconstructed, inside resides the ink cartridge which is a Fisher Space Pen black, SPR4 medium refill.  Apropo for this pen type, the Fisher cartridge increases its all around versatility.  I have since swapped out the medium Fisher refill for the fine black refill, but that is personal preference.

Interesting to note is this pen was constructed omitting the ability to post its cap.  County Comm's reasoning for doing this, per their website, has to do with lending the business end of the pen to someone, but holding on to its cap and theoretically according to County Comm, you should get it back.  Having a pen like this, my advice would be to "just say no."  Or carry a different pen just to lend out.  After all, this is a finely engineered writing implement, constructed from T6061 Type 3 anodized aluminum, its loss would certainly be a deficit in anyone's collection.

Writing with this pen is a comfortable, smooth experience.  Typical of pens with its heft, knurled grip and its incorporated use of the Fisher ink cartridge.  Add the attractive, ninja kubotan like design, and this becomes a writing instrument of multi - faceted proportions.  There are few pens which I feel "always" need to be made available to me, the writer.  The County Comm Embassy Pen (Rev. 2) Black is one.  Whether its with me in the field, or I'm sitting behind a well-appointed desk, this pen adapts and looks and performs well in any environment.

As such, I very highly recommend the County Comm Embassy Pen (Rev. 2) Black. 


  1. Great review. Are there any other refill options besides the Fisher?

    1. Thanks. Not to my knowledge, but I will research that potential.
