Black ink ballpoint pen comes inside plastic case.

The original Bullet Space Pen was conceived in July of 1948. Made with an all brass body, the inner ink component of the Bullet is pressurized, assuring smooth writing on virtually any surface! The sealed ink cartridge is pressurized at about 45 pounds per square inch and contains a visco-elastic, thixotropic, solid-gel ink. The result is a ballpoint pen that will write dependable smooth upside down, underwater, over grease, in extreme cold and hot temperatures and has an estimated shelf life of 100 years. Multiple body colors and ink color refills available.

Pen dimensions: Approximately 3.8 inches (9.7 cm) long when capped, 5.3 inches (13.5 cm) from tip to end of cap when cap is posted on back of pen, and 0.4 inches (10 mm) in diameter.

The Fisher Space Pen...
October 30, 2012
The Fisher Space Pen features awesome minimalist design, with a twist.

It is a very good quality product. This pen is virtually bulletproof as far as strength goes and is engineered to last a lifetime. Thankfully the esthetics is also both timeless and classy.

This is the ORIGINAL pressurized ink pen.

It is not a sleeker version of the Power-Tank, but the INSPIRATION for the Power-Tank. No disrespect is meant to the geniuses at Uni-Mitsubishi, because they made the Power-Tank an equally great product to the Space Pen. It is just that these two pens were created to do the same thing, but with a completely different design intent.

Uni engineered the Power-Tank to be a "better" disposable pen: One that writes predictably well regardless of the conditions thrust upon it. As most people know they succeeded, but it is still, as I’ve stated before, a disposable pen. It looks cheaply made, because in order to capture their design intent IT IS cheaply made.

I’d love to see Uni come out with a more mature facade for the Power-Tank. It is my workhorse for outdoor engineering work. For a serious meeting however, I would choose the Fisher Space Pen. Perception is everything. Something as trivial as so-called “pen ethics” could be the difference between a high paying contract and failure.

I had one of these last...
January 20, 2013
I had one of these last year, but someone nicked it whist at school. I was bitterly disappointed as I only had it for a few months. I tried in vain to recover it. So I bought another one the other day which I hope to keep on to for a while!

This pen is built to last. It's solid brass and it shows. I love this pen's simplicity so I haven't had any interest in the clip. The only problem that I've had with the old pen is that the chrome scratches easily. My new one is being babied. It works like advertised in my use, but I can't vouch for it's zero-G properties. If someone wants to launch me into space to allow me to test it, be my guest.

The ink is great, and comes out smooth. Some say that they have to press down really hard to get a bold line but I haven't had the problem, but I tend to write with a heavy hand anyhow. There are some white dots in my writing, but I think any sort of pen would have that problem. It's certainly a cool pen, and I hope to use it on all my exams!

If you buy this pen, you will not be disappointed. If you somehow are, it's backed by a bullet proof warranty so there's nothing to loose!

Great portable writing...

Great portable writing instrument, writes very smoothly. One odd disappointment was that without the clip, the cap comes off and can be put on the butt of the pen so you don't lose it easily, but with the clip, the cap will not fit on the butt and you have to set it down and make sure you don't lose it. It's a bit of a unfortunate catch-22.
A classic. I keep one...

A classic. I keep one deep down in my pocket. That way, I don't have to sign receipts with the same pen as people who don't wash their hands.

This pen rocks! I originally got it to have something small and easy to carry, but I've come to use it all the time, even when working at a desk. If you're into that retro 50s and 60s futuristic look, you'll love this thing. For such a small pen, it has a fairly substantial weight and is very comfortable to use when posted. I especially like the grooves where the pen is gripped. At first, the refill didn't seem like anything special, but I think it has grown on me. In short, it's a great pen to keep in your car, backpack, etc., but it's also a great pen to use on a daily basis.
I also got the clip on mine, and I would recommend getting that as well, unless you just plan to carry it in a pants pocket or something.
