The Fisher Space pen was designed by Paul Fisher and was first used in space by astronauts on Apollo 7 in 1968. This specially designed retractable Space Pen has a brass barrel with a non reflective matte black finish. It is a favourite with Military Forces worldwide.
It contains the now legendary sealed pressurised refill with black ink and a medium tip. It can write upside down and at any angle as well as in extreme conditions from -34 degrees C up to 121 degrees. So, it will handle expeditions to the Arctic, hot desert conditions or even the humid wet conditions of the jungle with ease. It can also write in outer space, over grease, on wet paper and even under water.
This pen can be refilled with Fisher Space Pen refills that are available in black, blue, brown, burgundy, green, red, purple, turquoise, silver and ultra violet which have a medium tip. The black and blue are also available with a fine or broad tip.
The pen has a life time guarantee and is supplied in a Fisher branded black cardboard “shuttle box”.
