The Fisher Shuttle Pen was inspired by the design of the original astronaut space pen but with a slimmer profile. The pen is also longer and has a deeper engraved grip section.
To extend the writing tip you press down on the top and press the side button to retract. This design ensures you always retract the refill as you slide the pen into your pocket.
In the early 60’s Paul C Fisher was approached by NASA to create a pen that would work in outer space and in zero gravity. After initially believing it could not be done, Fisher had a dream and began working on the first pressurized refill. In 1965 after years of testing Fisher had realised his dream by creating a pen that could write at any angle, underwater, over grease and in extreme temperatures. The CH4 Shuttle Space Pen is the next installment to the line of Astronaut pens; it was introduced during the Space Shuttle Program and is the current pen of choice of the astronauts on the ISS today.
The CH4 comes gift boxed.
The Fisher Space Pen is a durable pen that requires no care. Simply retract the writing point in between use to stop the refill from drying out.
To change the refill simply unscrew the barrel and insert the new refill. Refills are available for this pen with either black or blue ink and come with a fine or medium writing point. Each new Fisher Space Pen comes with a black medium point refill inside.
