Tuff-Writer Launches New Challenge


PHOENIX, AZ (February 2012)Tuff-Writer Inc., makers of the world’s toughest American made tactical pens, has set their sights on proving that the Blendtec Blender, made famous by the “Will It Blend?” series of YouTube videos, will not be able to blend their tactical pen.

For years now, Blendtec has been blending iPads, pens and everything imaginable to prove just how tough their kitchen appliances are. Tuff-Writer has also made a point to show just how tough their pens are, breaking apart 2x2’s, 2x4’s, 4x4’s and even a log – all without damage to the pen!  Over the course of several years, Tuff-Writer has reached out to Blendtec through emails and social media offering a Tuff-Writer pen for their “Will It Blend?” challenge with no response – but everything is about to change.

Tuff-Writer is issuing their own “Tuff-Writer / Blendtec Challenge.” For every pen sold through the Tuff-Writer website, $5 of the proceeds will be set aside in a special fund to purchase a Blendtec blender (valued at $500). Pen prices will not be raised to reach this goal and there are no restrictions on which purchased pen’s proceeds will go to the fund.

“We here at Tuff-Writer don’t know the meaning of the word ‘failure,’ so once we realized that we may not be able to get a Tuff-Writer pen in the hands of the folks at Blendtec, we decided to take the matter into our own hands and get a Blendtec ourselves,” commented Jack Roman, Tuff-Writer General Manager. “So in the good name of science, and for our own morbid sense of curiosity, we’re going to put our money, and a pen or two, where our mouth is and perform our own Blendtec Challenge.”

Once the $500 goal has been met, Tuff-Writer will purchase a Blendtec blender and will survey customers on which pen they want to see go up against the Blendtec first. The challenge will be videotaped and put on the company website and social sites to show the results.
