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
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.
