Any info or time line yall hope to have some attachments rolling out?

Uberknives did a package sell where got the smaller pens with 3" XMs but honestly wanted the larger pen. Trade offs for customer friendly prices landed me with the Investigator model which am afraid will be way too tiny for my 6'3" stature but might work just right for my 5'2" wife ;-)

Several of us here are not "small". You discovered a benefit of the Investigator...it's easy to carry, especially as a secondary pen. I carry at least one as backup to a larger pen or carry only the Investigator when lounging around/ wearing minimal clothing in warmer weather / going out "on the town", etc. it's the better to have it when need it vs not have it when need it kinda thing.

While I have no info on future production / availability of the Investigator pen attachments...

I did pick up a warhead tip long ago from HKS...recently visited the site and didn't see any.

And beside the warhead, flat end is the only other option I can think of off top of mind.

All I can add is that the warhead makes the pen a little shorter to pocket and penetrates as well as the standard bullet end.

Yea. I've looked for warhead and can't find it and site says mods will be produced so just was curious if anything was in the works like even sketched up on a napkin or something lol.

It's not as small as I was excepting. I too wear an xl or xxl depending on brand and it isn't uncomfortable at all to write with.

The ano finish wear on yours doesn't surprise me one bit. Many Ti gadgets hold it well while some don't for whatever reason. I've actually been really trying to figure out why some titanium materials (even extremely slick finished) hold up to wear while others don't but am coming up empty. Could be as simple as a type of titanium vs another type, who knows.

Glad the pen seems to wear wonderfully though as I will use it quite frequently. It's my first tactical pen and really like its overall design.

Not sure what "value" it will offer but I will be posting a picture of one of my knives later. Ti (smooth) scale Bronze ano. EDC'd for years.
One pf my First Hinderers Spanto Non-Flipper. It's home and I have not carried it recently so we shall ALL see the way the Ano has held up because I honestly do not recall......
Again, as I stated before in another thread. My "expectations" of tools with "finishes" is nil. IF I want a finish that looks the same years from now as it does brand new I get what is pictured here, I really don't get too caught up with how finishes wear on tools.

This knife (BTW) has seen years of EDC as well, Never really cleaned and certainly never has visited a "Spa".... Just a Great looking knife IMO and wears like a Tank.



Other side (just because)

One of my favorite looking knives especially when has a custom grind. Ti on Ti just does it for me in any natural looking shade whether it is from wear or finished. I'm digging the frag Ti too though!

Speaking of attachments-- are the investigator attachments interchangeable with extreme duty ones? Or different sizes?

The pens are very differently sized...never thought to try to interchange/exchange parts...but my best guess is no.
