The Truth About Fisher Bullet Pens

June 01, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 158

The Fisher Bullet Space Pen is probably the most popular pen of all times. Why is this so?

Is it the design? The size? Its durability? or Is it the fact that it uses a Space Pen refill?

In this article we will deconstruct this amazing pen and discover why it is so appealing despite being created more than 40 years ago without suffering a single modification to its original constitution.

Since they were invented, ballpoint pens have depended on gravity for the ink to flow. The Space Pen is an exception, it uses a pressurized gas refill.

1. The Refill

Relying strictly on pressure instead of gravity, the Space Pen refill contains a sliding float that separates the gas from the ink, pushing it to the tip of the pen where a tungsten carbide ball is in charge of spreading the ink on paper.

2. The Ink

The ink is no ordinary either. Space Pen refills use a special kind of ink called thixotropic which is a variety of semisolid ink that flows by its contact with the rolling ball.

3. Size and Weigh (Balance)

When closed, the Fisher Bullet Pen is 3.75" long, a size that might seem a little too short for some, but the perfect size if you want a pen that fits in your pockets without a problem.

When you take the cap off and put it on the other side of the pen it becomes 5.25" long, which is a pretty decent size to write comfortably.

The pen's weight is approximately one ounce, which alongside its aerodynamic design provides the perfect balance to write properly.

4. The Design

The first Fisher Bullet Pen was created in 1948 by Paul Fisher. Initially it did not use the Space Pen refill since it was subsequently created in 1965. Nonetheless and regardless of its practical applications, the classic design of the Bullet Pen is considered a remarkable achievement of industrial art.

In fact, it has been exhibited in the New York Museum of Modern art for many years now.

If your job demands a pen that can write upside down, on pretty much any kind of surface, and in extreme temperatures, then this is the pen you want to use.

Paramedics, construction personnel, special forces, astronauts, all of them have benefited from the awesome features of the Bullet Space pen.

Even if you are not an astronaut and you just like to take notes leaning on walls, give this amazing pen a chance. Not only will your productivity increase, you will not want to leave your house with out it.

Besides the Fisher Bullet Pen, more Fisher Space Pen designs are available. Each model looking to satisfy specific demands and needs, but sharing the same quality and features of a Space Pen.
