Fisher Space Pen

Fisher Space Pens are hard use and rugged pens known for the pressurized ink cartridges that allowed astronauts to write with ink in the low gravity environments found inside spacecraft. Now Fisher is partnering with NIC Industries (the company behind Cerakote) to bring two new editions of classic pens to consumers.

The Cap-o-Matic Space Pen and the Bullet Space Pen will now be sold with the same polymer and ceramic compound, ultra-durable finish that commonplace in the protective finishes of hard use and duty grade rifles, shotguns and handguns.

Pens that are designed to work in virtually all conditions including the low gravity environment of outer space will also serve first responders and others who need reliable gear and writing implements in harsh environs. On top of this, the pressurized PR4 black ink cartridge inside each pen also allows these pens to write underwater.
