When closed, Bullet Space Pens are the perfect size to carry in your wallet, pocket, purse, car glove box, organizer, or toolbox. When open, it's a full sized, evenly balanced writing instrument.
The original Bullet Space Pen was conceived in July of 1948. Paul Fisher was soon machining a new pen design shaped from solid aluminum. It became our first Fisher ball point pen, the 400 Bullet Pen, and arguably the most popular pen of the twentieth century. This pen is now all brass with a lacquered brass finish.
Cited as an outstanding example of industrial art, the classic design of the Fisher Bullet Pen has been exhibited for years in the New York Museum of Modern Art. The Bullet's timeless styling has been the topic of many art books and magazine articles. Often imitated, but never duplicated, the Fisher Bullet continues to be our most popular pen.
The Fisher Space Pen is a ballpoint pen that will write upside down, underwater, on top of grease, and in extreme cold and hot temperatures. It has an estimated shelf life of 100 years. Take that, crummy stick pen.
In 1967, after rigorous testing, NASA selected the Fisher Space Pen for use on the Apollo Missions. They are now used on all manned space flights - American and Russian. We figure if you can't BE an astronaut, you might as well write like one.
Each Space Pen comes with one ink cartridge. But just in case you plan on writing a novel by hand, we now have individual black ink refills available for purchase.
