Is it illegal to have a tactical pen on a commercial jet and do you have to keep it concealed?

Mine routinely goes through TSA in the pocket of my jacket.  It is visible to anyone who wants to look.

Ace,

The tactical pen is not illegal to possess. However, when it comes to the ability to carry a tactical pen into the secure area of an airport, the answer is that it depends. TSA allows their agents discretion when it comes to items they believe to be potentially dangerous. The TSA agent who screens you at the airport will be the one to decide whether or not you are allowed to carry the tactical pen.
