This is the original Fisher Space pen that was first used in Space on Apollo 7 in 1968 and then on Apollo 11 which landed on the moon on July 20th 1969. It is still used to this day on all manned space flights. Its design and construction have not changed since then.
It is made from solid brass with an extremely hard wearing chrome plate and fixed pocket clip. The pen is known as an AG7-40 and it is a retractable pen with a very positive click mechanism. The refill is extended by pressing down on top of the pen and retracted by pressing the side button.
This 40th anniversary commemorative edition is beautifully engraved at the top with the words ”40th anniversary Special Edition” “Apollo 11” Man’s First Moon Landing” “July 20 1969”ﾠThe bottom part of the pen is engraved with an astronaut saluting an American Flag and the words “Apollo 11” “ Neil A. Armstrong” ” Buzz Aldrin” “Michael Collins”
The Fisher AG7 Space pen has 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 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.
