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 the first Fisher ball point pen, the #400 Bullet Pen, is arguably the most popular pen of the twentieth century. This pen is now all brass with a Matte black finish.When closed, the Bullet Space Pen is 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 patented ink cartridge was designed by Paul Fisher for NASA in the 1960's enabling it to write in temperatures from -30 to +250 degrees Fahrenheit, under water, in zero gravity, at any angle, even upside down. Includes removable clip.

When I was as kid I had the chrome bullet. But, being a kid, I lost it. I don't know why it took me so long to buy another bullet. This thing is amazing!

Likes:
- The matte finish looks and feels great.

- The size is great for throwing in your front pocket. I put in in my jeans pocket and forget it's there. The size is also nice for clipping it in your polo. It does not protrude out of my shirt like full size pens do.

- The clip hasn't budged yet. I knew going into it that people had issues with the clip. Mine has not moved. But if it did come off I would probably score the area where I want the clip to go and would use some JB weld or something.

- The pen locks securely into place when in the closed or open position.

- The ink is great. Smooth and consistent. I've used space pen refills in other pens: Parker Jotter, Zebra F701, and Schrade 2nd gen tac pen. But using a fisher refill WITH a fisher pen is by far the best.

Thanks to this pen, I might pick up a cap-o-matic in the near future.

I'm on my third or fourth, I've lost count. I recall these being around as far back as the early 1970s, an back then they only offered chrome and no pocket clip. So, they're provenance claim is accurate.

I work both outdoors and indoors, write on paper, facing downward *most* of the time. This pen has successfully functioned for me exactly as advertised. It's my everyday use pen, particularly out in the field.

It's a ballpoint, and the ink's a tad thicker than cheaper ballpoint pen inks, so it requires a little more effort than an ordinary ball point pen to use. It's great for occasional use, but I could see writing 20+ pages of notes could get old.

If you get one, make sure it comes with the the pocket clip (not all bullet pens include the clip), and it's pressed at least 1/4 to 1/3 of the way down on the cap. Otherwise it will slip off unnoticed. Also make sure the O-ring on the pen body is present, and has a tiny knick in it for air release. The cap should have a small amount of drag as it's pulled off. Twisting the pen body halves together compresses the O-ring, causing it to squeeze out and increases cap "drag".

I have experienced a problem, but I haven't traced the exact cause. I have lost at least three of these pens, two of them this exact model. One finally surfaced, but was claimed by my wife. They're machined out of solid brass so they're a little heavier than a standard pen, and with a smooth, streamlined profile it easily slips out of the smallest hole in my pocket. To help avoid this, I pressed the pocket clip a little further down on the cap to tighten it, and tied a 24" long strand of parachute cord to the clip. So far, so good...[8^)

Edit to add: March 26, 2013. Well, it happened. It vanished.

I just love this pen. It fits great in my purse or pocket and works better than pen I've ever used while making notes on a small notepad while hanging upside down from the rafters pulling network cable. My only complaint about this pen is the clip. It comes off really easily when I remove the pen from pocket and I can see it getting lost soon.

It is easy to write with and of a quality build. The pocket clip works nicely to keep it in place on a pocket of your pants, shorts or shirt. (Mine clips on top of the spirals on my Rite in the Rain Notepad) The only thing you want to keep in mind with this pen is the cost. Its small and easy to lose. If you are able to keep track of your stuff and don't mind buying an extra or two, you should add the color you want to your cart and buy it.

P.S. It comes in a neat little gift box too!

To me this pen exemplifies the minimalist and clean design of the iPod, it is widely considered one of the greatest examples of modern industrial design and has a permanent home in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art. I love this pen so much I end up telling everyone I know about it. Yes that sounds stupid but there are so many reasons why it is so great. It is more fine art than pen, more crafted than manufactured, more perfect device than office supply. For one it is flippin in-de-struct-a-ble, for another the ink will NEVER LEAK. There are just so many way that this pen feels like a finely crafted instrument, no a weapon, yes It's like holding a finely crafted hand gun. Like James Bond's Walther PPK you can feel the weight of the pen in your hand, not just your fingers, yet the impression is not of a heavy writing instrument but of balanced and solidly constructed device. The black matte is the best finish because your fingers will not stick to it like they would to a shiny surface. Here, now is an oft repeated daily moment of Zen for me.

I reach into my pocket and pull out my trusty, smoooth, black matte, bullet space pen with optional clip and with both hands slowly separate the two perfectly merged halves of the pen. The pen is sealed with a high quality rubber O-ring that causes this act to have a sense of substance to it. The seal is so perfect that you can feel the smooth drag of the pen's inner wall against the rubber seal. Next I effortlessly flip the writing end of the two pieces around in my fingers and merge the round end back into the cover. This process feels more like you're tightening a special fastener, you feel the cap lock into place in a smooth yet tight envelopment of its other half.
