Space Pen | Matte Black Bullet Space Pen with Matte Black Clip
Proudly made in the USA When closed, Bullet Space Pens are the perfect size to carry in your wallet, pocket, purse, car glove box, organizer, or toolbox. When open, it's a full sized, evenly balanced writing instrument.
The original Bullet Space Pen was conceived in July of 1948. Paul Fisher was soon machining a new pen design shaped from solid aluminum. It became our first Fisher ball point pen, the 400 Bullet Pen, and arguably the most popular pen of the twentieth century. This pen is now all brass with a matte black finish.
Cited as an outstanding example of industrial art, the classic design of the Fisher Bullet Pen has been exhibited for years in the New York Museum of Modern Art. The Bullet's timeless styling has been the topic of many art books and magazine articles. Often imitated, but never duplicated, the Fisher Bullet continues to be our most popular pen.

About the Maker
Fisher Space Pen Co.
What is the story behind your business?
Fisher Space Pen rose to prominence when founder Paul Fisher invented a retractable, pressurized pen called the Anti-Gravity 7 (#AG7) that worked flawlessly in zero gravity aboard the first manned Apollo mission in 1968. Five decades later the company continues to thrive with pens still flown aboard every manned space flight. After Paul Fisher earned NASA as a customer for his revolutionary Space Pen, he continued to focus his efforts on developing unique, quality products. All Fisher Space Pens are handcrafted and able to write underwater, over grease, at any angle, upside down, 3-times longer than the average pen, in extreme temperatures ranging from (-30°F to +250°F), and in zero gravity. “People find that our technology is by far the most reliable from both a shelf-life and environmental standpoint,” says Cary Fisher, now co-owner and Paul’s son. One of Paul Fisher’s first ideas was for the iconic Bullet Pen, named for its sleek rounded ends. Fisher Space Pen is manufactured and assembled in the company's 30,000-square-foot warehouse in Boulder City, Nevada. Approximately 65 employees create the company’s unique line of high-quality writing instruments. “We're a small company, but we're all focused on one thing: making a great product. We’re upholding the whole notion of 'Made in America', which, I think, still counts.”
