…The KZ Xtreme Defense Pen is a killer?

KZ Xtreme Defense Pen

Any pen can write, and some pens can also serve stylus duty, but only the KZ Xtreme Defense Pen can write, serve stylus duty, and kill a man.

That’s because the KZ Xtreme Defense Pen is designed to serve as a defense tool in times of need, with a CNC Machined, Type II Class 3 Hard Anodized, 6061 Aircraft Grade Aluminum body and a threaded cap and slip free, knurled center that ensure you can get the job done when your pen needs to do a little more than just jot down a list of groceries that you need to pick up at the store.

Sure, you’ll probably never need to use the pen for actual self-defense, but wouldn’t it be nice to know that you could if you needed to?

…Some options are just decadent?

Decadent Options

Sure, you might have splurged a bit the last time you bought a car and checked a few of the options check boxes, but chances are, the power seats and remote key fob you added on probably didn’t break the bank when it came time to sign the dotted line.

Car and Driver’s list of the ten most decadent options is a little different however, as these options are definitely more optional than functional.

How optional?

How about $3,750 for the Mercedes-Benz “Airscarf”, a vent that blows hot air on your neck when the top is down along with the temperature needle.

Not extravagant enough for you?

How about $12,000 for the Rolls-Royce Starlight Headliner, an roof that features 1,600 tiny lights that sparkle at night. (Though it’s only $7.56 per light if you break it down that way.)

With watches that will open doors, granite interior accents, reclining seats with leg rests, special leather, and “Drive-Dynamic” seats that massage you as you cruse down the interstate, these definitely aren’t for the thrifty buyer, but if money is no object, then these options will gladly clear you of yours.
