I’m a life-long fan of Space Age design and the Fisher Space Pen is a perfect, pocketable example of Space Age form meeting timeless function. It’s virtually indestructible under any kind of perilous situation a pen is likely to find itself in. Outside of being lost, one could last you a lifetime.
The Fisher Space Pen first went into space on the Apollo 11 mission that landed on the moon in 1969. It features a special pressurized cartridge that allows it to work in almost any temperature, upside down, under water and even in zero gravity.
I’ve had mine for over a decade. I carry it without fear in my purse, knowing the long cap ensures the ballpoint nib will remain sealed and not spill ink. Also, I’m the kind of gal that digs chrome; it’s shiny when new and looks cool as it wears off. It’s not too skinny and not too tiny. $25 USD for a good long life.
It’s pretty, and it works!
