For those who like something a little bit different, the Fisher Telescoping Space Pen is just the thing.
It is a compact pen that is made from solid aluminium with a matte finish and a unique retraction method. There are two sets of grooves cut into the pen - one which forms the grip and the other at the top of the barrel. The pen is extended and retracted by holding the grip and the ridged area at the top of the barrel and then pulling or pushing.
The Fisher Telescoping Space pen measures 98mm when it is retracted and 121mm when it is fully extended it weighs 20.6 grams.
The Telescoping Space Pen hasﾠthe 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 C. Not only can it write in outer space but it can even write under water or on wet paper and over grease.
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 black plastic gift case with the Fisher Logo. There is an optional leather pen case available.
