Product Description

Color: Black

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.

It is very good pen. Somebody commented before that it's only a pen, whatever. I have a Cross, Waterman and a bunch of random stick pens in between. This is really good, for a "sub-compact" it has really good feel, better than my Cross and the ink flows really well. The only one to compare ink flow and consistency to is the Pilot G2, just as good.

The only problem I had when purchasing was with the descriptions, there was nothing to put it in context. The closed size is maybe an inch longer than Chapstick and half as thick. The opened size is maybe a quarter inch less than the G2 gel pen.

The ink dries really quick and is a really good companion to my Moleskine notebook. The mini G2's were my first choice but the ink took too long to dry and was always smudging. This is a premium compared to the G2 but you won't regret it.

I'm up and down ladders all day long. I'm working in the rain or snow or heat. I was always breaking pens and making a mess or sharpening a pencil every time I needed to write.

Then came the Space Pen, the perfect pen, the only writing instrument I'll ever take on the job with me again.

The size is perfect. Closed, it comfortably fits in my pocket and never jabs me, never breaks, never leaves a mess. I've been using my space pen for 3 years and it's not given me a bit of problem. It writes anywhere, anytime.

Opened, the cap fits right on the back and it's a full-sized pen, writes well and looks good. I can hand it to a client and they always look like they want to keep it for themselves.

So yeah, problem is these little guys are escape artists if you're carrying them in your pants pocket. They're so smooth-sided they slip out and disappear. Really annoying.

I'm here to share a tip I've discovered that fixes this problem. Might not be best for everyone, but it's worked REALLY well for me, and it was a cheap/easy thing to do.

I added a rubber grommet around the pen itself. It cost me about a buck at a local hardware store. The rubber "ring" provides a nice amount of grippyness to the inside of the pocket, and the pen ends up not sliding around. It's also positioned where it doesn't get in the way of writing. I'll attach a couple pics.

Fisher Space Pens are great, and this bullet style is very convenient. I just got this one and one of another style to go with the all black one I already had. Four stars for the the bullet style pens as a class. What annoyed me about this one is what the picture and description did not show; the front section of this red pen, hidden by the cap, is actually shiny chrome. I'd expected it to be all red, similar to my all black one. One of the customer reviews did mention this, if you happened to read them all, but there was nothing in the sales listing. I opened up this pen and thought that I'd gotten a Frankenfisher, cobbled together from two separate pens. A check of the Fisher site revealed that it really is supposed to be that way.

Now some people might like this. To me it's not actually ugly, but I don't really like the look; it's a matter of taste. The point is that this should have been shown in the pictures, or at least mentioned in the description. [UPDATE] I put up some pictures of my own. Judge for yourself.

I've never written a review online before, and I'll probably never write one ever again. But this product "shiny chrome Fisher Bullet Space pen" compelled me to write a review for all those who are currently debating whether or not to spend the money to buy a Fisher Space Pen.

The short answer is Yes, I definetly do recommended it! If you are a gadget freak, if you are a 'perfectionist', if you are an engineer, busy-person, doctor, lawyer, soldier, spy, President, or maybe even astronaut, or simply the average person who needs a pen to perform every single time without exception, this pen has its use for you.

I bought my fisher pen online partly because after reading these reviews it swayed me to be more inclined to 'give this a try'. Today I received my very first fisher space pen and my first impression of it was that it was such a tiny, (and 'tiny' is the correct word here) pen! I knew the bullet pen wasn't going to be full size, but honestly I had really expected something a little bit 'larger' and more substantial than that 'little' thing!

I proceeded to test it out. It writes and writes upside-down for as long as you can write upside-down, which is more than I can say for even the most fanciest of other ball point pens. The claim that fisher pens write upside down and at any angle is 100% absolutely true!

I submerged it under a tub of water and it wrote a full page. And I suppose it would have written another page and yet another, as long as the page lasts that long under water. Every other pen I tested stopped writing after about the first 5 words.

I have been looking for a nice pen to get back into longhand writing for day to day notes and journaling. I was concerned primarily with smoothness and ease of writing. Second was length because I would be carrying it in jeans, dress pants, coat pockets, etc and in dress pants particularly a long pen falls out easily.

I've wanted a space pen for a long time just for the fun factor. I hesitated for a long time to purchase it because I was worried about how nicely it would write and how the ink would look. Now that I have it I'm very please and relieved.

It is short enough to sit in any pocket. It writes smoothly and has a nice feel to it. Like others said, I find myself twiddling with it while sitting around because of the nice weight, length, and heft. I think this is a great pen.
