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.
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.
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.
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.
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.Read more ›
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.
