I first got my hands on a Fisher Space Pen in 2010 when I was working for a company that was planning to get some branded ones. It was a small silver bullet pen, small enough to fit in my pocket. So when we sold everything and packed what was left into a 50 litre backpack the pen came with me. For 6 glorious months my Space pen and I traveled the world. I took notes from Berlin to Avignon, Portofino to Athens, Istanbul to Chang Mai to Langkawi to Puerto Viejo. Then we moved to London. And after 6 month of hardly going anywhere my pen vanished.
Growing up I used a yellow Lamy Safari pen with black ink on yellow legal note pads. Pen and paper were essential to my personal style. And it still is. So I pulled the trigger and ordered myself a shiny new classic bullet lacquered brass Fisher Space Pen. It arrived the next day and I still had 2 fine point Space Pen refills from my previous pen. It seemed like a sound investment. Brass is more my style these days and I feel back to normal with this weighty little piece in my pocket.
It writes in space, underwater and doesn't leak no matter how rumbled it gets. It also writes very well at a kitchen table in South East London too. Who would have thought?
