Product Description

Chrome Plated Astronaut Space Pen. This is the original Fisher Space Pen that was used on the Apollo 7 space mission in 1968 after 2 years of testing by NASA and has been used on all manned space flights since then. The design and construction of this pen has not changed in 36 years. The pen you buy today is exactly the same as the one taken to the moon in 1969. It is a heavy pen and the weight rests reassuringly in your hand as you write. The AG7 is made from solid brass with an extremely hard Chrome plating. It has a very positive and substantial feeling click mechanism. You press down on the top to extend the refill and press the side button to retract the refill. It's special design assures you that you'll always retract the point before you slide it in your pocket. It's constructed of all brass and steel components of the highest quality and is made in the USA. All Astronaut Pens are attractively packaged in heavy duty gift boxs with flock lining and come with a pamphlet describing the history of the Fisher Space Pen. Used on all NASA Apollo and Shuttle missions, ISS International Space Station, Russian Soyuz and MIR space flights, French ARIANE Space Program, Everest North Face Ski Expedition. This item come in a original box from the manufacturer.

I decided to purchase the AG7 pen after I had purchased the bullet pen. I love my bullet pen, so I figured I would love this one too. And I do. This pen is so eye catchy and appealing. I love the retract button on the side and the chrome finish. Also to know that this pen hasn't been changed at all over the years is also neat. You get to use the same pen every astronaut or cosmonaut has used in the space program. I do write upside down, and outside, and even in the rain. It hasn't failed me yet. Also, just some history, contrary to popular belief, the CCCP did not use pencils in space. Why? The lead shavings and dust from the pencil would float around in orbit and perhaps injure the astronaut or space module. Also, NASA did not invent the space pen. It was invented by Fisher for the space program. The ink cartridge is pressurized, forcing the ink to the ball point. This pen writes very smoothly and feels nice in my hand. I got this AG7 for mainly two reasons. 1. The history behind it, and 2; the fact that I can literally use it anywhere, anytime. This pen is always in my bag or coat pocket. If I forget it, I have my bullet pen to fall back on. Fisher has nailed it with these pens. It'll be the last pen I buy, and it will probably be the last one you buy too.

This pen is well enough made that it will put up with pretty much any abuse that you put it through. It is solid and performs as advertised. I am a bit of a compulsive clicker when it comes to pens, so the mechanism is a bit of a novelty that I like. I have actually purchased 2 now... the second to replace the original that I lost. After owning it about 6 months, the chrome is wearing a little on the button that retracts the pen, but other than the slight cosmetic wear, it looks great and writes great. The ink does have a tendency to gob up if you are left handed, but not as bad as a Cross pen. The refills are a tad expensive.

This pen is great. I use a pen constantly during my work, estimating and adjusting homes. I draw often, and also write and fill out a lot of forms and notes for homeowners. I think using a nice pen is great for improving my attitude and experience at work, and I believe it also helps if you are trying to get someone to sign either a contract or a check. Having a nice pen sitting there makes a difference.
Anyway, I have quite a few spacepens, including the AG-7, this CH-4, a few of the bullet pens, and a couple cap-o-matics as well. I do not have experience with either the MARS or Millenium II, because they look uncomfortably thick to hold.

I'm going to start with what I think is the CH-4's main competitor...

The AG-7 is a great pen, I think you should own one. The only problem, is that during extended use the pen begins to feel a bit top-heavy because of the taper and the thickness. The pen's weight is a great quality, but if it's hot and your hand is sweating, the grooves can be insufficient for easy gripping. I think the mechanism makes up a significant portion of the weight. The clicks are smooth and satisfying - I find myself clicking it while I am not writing, but just walking and holding the pen.

The CH-4 is a fantastic pen! You need to own one. There is no problem with this pen. After using and loving the AG-7 for months, I tried the CH-4 because of the cooler pen-clip imprint (SPACE w/orbit logo, contrasted with AG-7). The barrel of the pen is straight and only begins to taper at the proper point. The pen itself is still pleasantly heavy, and the mechanism is very satisfying as well. It does lack some of the click down pressure, compared to what is required with the AG-7, as well as some of the release power.

My Uncle Ted gave me one of these for Christmas in 1972. He worked at the Manned Spacecraft Center in Houston as an Engineer for NASA and he got one of the first batches that was available to the public. I have it sitting in front of me, and it still works. The cartridge has been changed more than a few times over the years, but it is still the same pen that I used all through high school and college. A great, great pen for anyone with a sense of history and appreciation of what we have done in space.

As a fifteen year veteran police officer, I can attest that I've used many types of pens. I've tried gel, the basic ballpoint Bic, rollerball, and many others. None have come close to being as reliable and dependable as my Fisher AG-7. I started using in mid-2009 and have not looked back since. It can write on just about any surface, including the back of the carbon copied citations we use which usually cause pens to fail. I love this pen so much, I went and had my name laser engraved onto the side! I also love the two button way it clicks. You click it open by pressing the top, as any standard pen, but then you release it (retract pen) by pressing the side button, I personally love it and I think it is a classy way to put put the pen up.

About the only complaint I have is that this pen is not at all offered in the great looking "laqured brass" version that most Fisher pen lines offer, I have repeatedly written Fisher requesting a laqured brass version to no avail, hopefully it'll happen someday, maybe about the same time I'm promoted to Sgt.
