Fisher Space Pen

Stephanie

Vince Johnson, one of our recent dotWebbie contest winners, sent in this picture of his favorite pen – a Fisher Space Pen.

“In my case the pen is a relatively inexpensive Fisher Space Pen “Bullet”.  I live by the philosophy that the best pen is the one you have with you. This little guy clips to my wallet and us always ready for the job with no fear of ink leaking into my pocket. Its been thru countless washer/dryer cycles, lost in every car & couch I’ve lounged in but like a faithful friend returns when I need it. It’s looking a little beat up these days (chrome wearing off exposing the brass shell), but it has tons of character. I will be truly bummed if I ever lose it.”

You know, I’ve never tried one of the Fisher pens and I know they have a cool purple one…..

  1. I have the purple bullet. I don’t use it that much as I prefer using my fountain pens but when I’m going out somewhere and don’t want to be carrying the backpack that my pens live in, I stick my hipster PDA in the back pocket of my jeans and the bullet pen in the watch pocket.

  3. While I take excellent care of all of my stuff, I like that pens, watches, notebooks, tools, etc, show their wear, i.e., character.

  5. This made me smile. I have a bullet too. It’s always in my trouser pocket. It has a burnt orange veneer. Or at least, used to have. It’s chipped, dented and otherwise worn. Thing is, the pen writes smoothly every time and that’s what I love about it. It truly is “go anywhere”. I also have an engraved chrome bullet that was given to me by my boss for the completion of a major software project with a very high profile client, but that’s still in it’s case.

    I really liked this article, as it’s good to know there are other Space Pen (ab)users out there that value the pen’s ruggedness.

  7. I have two of the bullet pens, one silver and one black. I wouldn’t use one to write a novel, but they are the ultimate pocket pen. With the clip removed, they slide easily into a front jeans pocket, even. I take one (and a Rhodia No. 11 pad) on walks, for recording any sudden insights.
