Beardfellows Trading Company is pleased to offer you one of the finest and most timeless writing tools in the known galaxy: the Fisher Space Pen. Engineered to meet the forbidding, treacherous, and super spooky conditions of outer space, these pens were approved by NASA in 1967 and have been used on all manned space flights ever since.
Beginning in 1945, Paul Fisher and his associates have been using their devotion to accuracy, integrity, and fairness to improve the ballpoint pen. The Space Pen technology starts with a non-skip, textured tungsten-carbide ball encased in a stainless steel ball socket, designed and machined to almost perfect precision. The sealed ink cartridge is pressurized at about 45 pounds per square inch and contains a visco-elastic, thixotropic, solid-gel ink. The result is a ballpoint pen that will write dependably smooth upside down, underwater, over grease or oil, in extreme cold and hot temperatures, with an estimated shelf life of 100 years.
Seriously, we are all too familiar with the bummer of reaching for your 80 year old ballpoint pen while out on a spacewalk near the surface of the sun only to find that in the total vacuum of outer space the cartridge has exploded and ruined your freshly pressed space suit. We know how expensive those suits are to dry clean, and we here at Beardfellows Trading Company say never again! Our pens will write in space! Because really, if they won't, why carry them?
Available in chrome, matte black, or raw brass finish, this mother-of-all-pens is sure to be up to the task for any challenge you or your beard may find yourselves facing.
Looking to customize your pen? Don't forget to consider to including a clip for your bullet pen, and you can purchase a refill in blue, black, or red ink here.
Note* Due to oils in the skin, expect the raw brass finish to tarnish. The intended result is a one of kind patina finish that reflects your personal use of the pen. See item photos for examples.
