How many times have you reached into your flight bag or kneeboard during a flight only to find the ink has dried or the pen no longer working?  This happens even more frequently the higher altitudes that you fly.  The Fisher Space Pen is your solution to always having a working writing instrument during flight and on the ground.

Unlike ordinary ball pens which rely on gravity to feed ink, the replaceable Space Pen cartridge is pressurized. At nearly 35 pounds per square inch, ink is continuously fed to the tungsten carbide ball, allowing the user to write at any angle, even upside down. This advanced technology required Fisher Space Pen Co to develop a new and special ink.

And they did. The new visco-elastic, thixotropic ink, with a consistency similar to that of very thick rubber cement, flows as a result of the shearing action of the rolling ball in its socket. This shearing action liquefies the solid gel thixotropic ink, allowing the pen to write smoothly and dependably on the most surfaces and even underwater.

Evaporation, wasted ink and back leakage are eliminated. The estimated shelf-life of these pens is over 100 years.

Also works as a stylus for your devices

  • By Phil Bohlken from Knoxville, Tennessee on Tuesday, January 24, 2023
  • Pros: Writes very well, can also be used as an electronic stylus.
  • Review: My son gave me one of these as a gift almost 30 years ago. I did not use it much because I really like fountain pens and have several. But, I have been retired ten years and do not write much since. A fountain pen dries out in the nib from such low use. I began using my Cap-O-Matic. It is easy to carry, takes plenty of abuse, writes smoothly, extends and retracts easily, and it works very well as an electronic stylus. Just hold the pen at exactly a right angle to the device screen. It can be used to tap, to scroll, and to drag. Advertising pens are beginning to appear with soft rubberized domes for use as a stylus, but the capacitive dome sometimes is brushed off of the pen from under another layer of clothing, like a sweater or a jacket. Those domes are very difficult to get back in place, even if you do find it again. The Cap-O-Matic does not have that problem. Just be certain not to wear gloves when wanting to use the pen as a stylus.

This pen is awesome.

  • By Jessica from Nashville TN USA on Tuesday, May 24, 2022
  • Pros: Writes on any type of paper and at any angle.
  • Review: I had one of the original Fisher Space Pens when I was a kid decades ago. Somewhere along the way between high school and the Air Force I lost it and was never able to find another one until I read an article in Pen World magazine that featured the pen. I was so excited to find out they were still making them that I did an internet search and found them listed on this website. I immediately ordered one and haven’t looked back since.

    This pen isss VVC awesome. It is easy to use and to carry. I take it with me everywhere I go. It will write on practically any porous surface that I have tried to write on even if the paper is wet. I have even written with it in my journal while laying on my back in bed. I can’t recommend the Fisher Space Pen highly enough.
