Most of us can only dream of space travel but unfortunately for many of us, it will remain just that, a dream. For the creator of the Fisher 400 Bullet Space Pen though that dream did come true; at least for his invention.
Years of research and testing allowed Paul C. Fisher to come up with a really awesome pen with special attributes that it ended up being used by the astronauts of the Apollo 7 spacecraft although he originally didn’t to set out to create a pen for astronauts.
The Fisher 400 Bullet Space Pen was truly extraordinary. It did not rely on gravity, its ink was not exposed to air, it was able to write underwater and even in extreme hot and cold conditions from -30ºF to 250ºF. Since then, it has become a cultural touchstone that had an entire episode of Seinfeld devoted to it.
Without a doubt, the Space Pen was the most popular pen of the twentieth century. It was exceptional for daily use and could fit in wallets, pocket, purse, glove box, organizer or toolbox. When opened, it transforms into a full sized evenly balanced writing instrument.
The Fisher 400 Bullet Space Pen is still in use by astronauts on all manned space flights today – both American and Russian. You too can own this iconic pen even though you may never set foot in space.
The Fisher 400 Bullet Space Pen comes in the following finishes: matte black, gold, black titanium nitride, copper zirconium nitride, rainbow titanium nitride, and gold titanium nitride.
