Product Description

The first pens developed by Paul Fisher, these distinctive and unique pens are still the most popular in the Fisher Range today.

Cited as an outstanding example of industrial art, the Fisher Bullet Pen is exhibited in the New York Museum of Modern Art. When carried ( with the cap on), the Bullet Pen is a very compact 10cm long.

When writing with a bullet pen, the cap can be slipped on the end so that it is "normal size” (14cm long).

All Bullet pens are gift boxed.

Few products have such an interesting history as Fisher Space Pens.

In 1945 Paul Fisher, a scientist by training, was a man with a mission — ‘to develop and manufacture the world’s most dependable writing instruments.’ Fisher engineers spent thousands of hours and millions of dollars developing a pen superior in writing quality and style.

Recognition of their success came in 1967, when after 18 months of rigorous testing by NASA, the Fisher Space Pen was provided to astronauts for use in space. The selling point was that, unlike other ballpoint pens which rely on gravity to feed ink, the S pace Pens have a pressurised refill with a special ink that enables it to write over fingerprints, under water, upside down, on wet paper, in freezing cold and extreme heat and in the gravity-free vacuum of space.

Since 1967 both American astronauts and Russian Cosmonauts have used Fisher Space Pens on all manned space flights.
