PEN Tool is a tool that is used to make a path to form a new shape or to make a selection. The main advantage of this tool over lasso tool when making selection is that it provides points that can be adjusted and can be dragged and dropped.

For vector arts, ex: 2d images, pen tool is widely used (both for photoshop and illustrator). see the sample image below. other applications of pen tool is making vector brushes.

Using pen tool, you can make nice curve selections and makes you image or creation looks much better.
You can make a shape or select the whole object by making many paths connected to each other and closing it for us to make a selection.
