Fisher Bullet Space Pens

The first Fisher Bullet pen was designed in 1948.

In 1965 Paul Fisher patented the nitrogen gas pressurized refill, which marked the beginning of the Space Pen era.

When NASA accepted to use the pen in their missions, they chose the AG7 model. However, it is not the Space Pen the majority of people are familiar with.

It was the Bullet pen the one that became the most famous. Why?

First of all, the design.

When you look at a Bullet pen it looks solid and aerodynamic. You just want to get your hands on it and try it out.

The pen's dimensions are just right. Bullet pens are 5.25″ when open, a good length to write comfortably, and 3.75″ when closed, which is the perfect length to carry it in your pockets without a problem.

Fisher Bullet pens weight around one ounces providing the proper balance to write nice and smoothly.

If you like to clip your Bullet pen to your shirt pocket, you can get one that includes a clip.

As any other Space Pen, the Bullet can write in zero gravity or upside down. It can also write underwater, on oily surfaces, and in extreme temperatures (-30F to 250F ).

Bullet pens are widely used in professions that require one to write on the fly without having a desk at hand, like contractors, police officers, firefighters, and astronauts.

Even if you are just a student you probably want a pen that can withstand a lot of daily abuse and still work like the first day you got your hands on it. If so, this is the pen you want to use.

It is a nice model without being too pretentious and the price is pretty accessible for such a fine instrument.

Holding the pen is quite an experience. It feels smooth to the touch and has the right weight to write for a long time without getting tired.

Will it improve your writing?

Most likely. In general, people believe that writing is just that. Writing. However, there are different factors that will affect the way you put words on paper: The place, the time, your mood at the moment, music, silence, the chair, desk, keyboard, display, paper, and last but not least: The pen.

A classic design of industrial engineering, Fisher Bullet pens are an achievement of the twentieth century. That is why the New York Museum of Modern Art has an exposition about this specific model.

The pen has not been subject to any modification since the pressurized gas refill was patented in 1965. All over the years, millions of people have used Fisher Bullet Space Pens to great results. An aspect that can't be found that easily in our current society where many products have become disposable.
