With a closed length of only 3.77’’, the Bullet Space Pen remains the perfect companion to carry comfortably in your pocket, wallet, purse, car glove box, day planner, or toolbox. When opened, its length extends to 5.35’’, transforming it into a fully sized, evenly balanced writing instrument. Each Bullet Space Pen will write upside down - at any angle, under water, through grease, in extreme temperatures (-30 to +250 degrees F), on almost any surface, three times longer than the average pen, and of course in the gravity free vacuum of space. Cited as an outstanding example of industrial art, the time-tested design of the Fisher Bullet Pen holds a place in the permanent collection in the New York Museum of Modern Art - Its elegant styling has been the topic of many art books & magazine articles, and it has also been widely showcased in film & television as well, including being gifted to the late Johnny Carson by his guest Rob Reiner, and of course its appearance as a guest star of a hilarious episode of Seinfeld, fittingly entitled ‘The Pen’. The original Bullet Space Pen was conceived in July of 1948 by Paul Fisher, who was soon machining a new pen design shaped from solid aluminum - This became our first Fisher ball point pen, the #400 Bullet Pen, arguably the most popular pen design of the twentieth century, and certainly our most popular pen today!
