lmao the Russians just used a pencil
Where are these made?
Wait, is this coming with a pocket clip? Because it reads like so : "This is one of the most requested options from the Everyday Carry Pen (metal barrel, pocket clip, under 5") poll created by XABYLRSS.", but the pocket clip isn't mentioned anywhere in the specs nor appears in the photos
I would argue that THE most recognisable pen of the 20th century is the BIC Cristal. Made since the 1950's, it is the disposable ball point pen.
Several years ago I had one of these pens. Ink blobbed all the time. Is this still common? Not only did it blob, I had to occasionally wipe the built up ink on the tip.
Diddly
Still the case. It's more of an issue with a fresh refill, not so bad after a week or two. Unfortunately, there is only one alternative refill manufacturer as far as I know. And even the fine tip refill is way too thick for my taste. HOWEVER it is such a convenient form factor, and it is amazing to have a refill that just writes no matter what. At any angle, even if it's been sitting uncapped overnight. So space pens are all that I use these days. I don't buy em from md tho cause the prices aren't great.

I appreciate the information. Thanks!
Almost bought these. Then shipping to Canada (and the exchange rate) made amazon.ca cheaper by 2 bucks (in matte black).

This website sucks for us Canadians eh?
I've done my Amazon comparisons, and both of the fancy (+15) colors are an ok deal (surprisingly), especially since I'm not in a hurry. Get two titanium nitride pens at current price, you'd save at least 8 bucks over Amazon by my reckoning
I just got my space pens in the mail... I thought these came with pocket clips.
What a fraud!!! Who, exactly, is this 3-1/2 pen designed for? The Munchkins? No metal, ribbed barrel as shown in the pick. No pocket clip as stated in the drop. It doesn't even write on the box it came in!! This a flagrant misrep and we all should be refunded. Bah. Robert
MD, please make the next drop possible to purchase additional refills and clips together with pens.
Cool! And only nine dollars more than on Fisher's website! 9_9

Err, this is a 2-pack deal....

Yipe...! So it is. Is that why they say it's important to pay attention before you open your yap? >.<
Anyone know if these pens' pieces, that is, the portion that holds the refill, not the cap, just friction fit push together or do the two pieces screw together? Thanks in advance

No problem bud, I was answering Swymors question " I was asking about how the two pieces of the body of the pen are held together" in which he was referring to the body and not the cap. Just trying to keep everyone well informed.
Pretty definitive if ya ask me. Assuming of course they are all manufactured to the same standard. Thanks, really appreciated.
I have one chrome and one matte black (didn't get them on a drop) and while the chrome has held up for years, there are multiple dents in the black one just from being in my pocket with some keys... somehow. It still works great, it just doesn't look as nice anymore.
Will the pens arrive in their original boxes or some other packaging?
I know it isn't exactly the same, but I did the Zebra F-701 mod using an F-402 and a Fisher PR4. And I have to say, I really am coming to learn that I like fine point pens. I like that you can write with this at an angle almost parallel to the paper, but it just feels much too large and clumsy for me.

I hadn't heard of that and now I need to go out to get more 402s. Love the 701 like it was my firstborn child.
Addendum: I literally just did the 701 conversion and it's wonderful. The weight difference from all the metal is noticable and the pen feels substantial in the hand. Definitely recommend it over the actual Bullet pens for EDC. The clips on the 701s are possibly the best I've ever had.
For anyone interested: the 701 runs normally about $8USD, the refills and 2-pack of 402s run about $6 each. So overall price is about MSRP for the Bullet and is definitely better for some use cases.
I have two of these chrome pens from 1988. They still work and look great! They have some pocket wear, but still look almost new. I paid $20 each back in 1988 on a school field trip. I love these pens. I’ve only gone through at most, 10 refill cartridges between both of them. Not joining this drop, just saying how great these pens are. They will last forever. And they have a cool factor. People are always asking to have a closer look at mine. They’re usually amazed when I tell them how long I’ve had it.
When I can choose between the matte black or chrome for the second pen and not the more expensive ones I will gladly join the "drop"
why not just use a pencil?

Precisely. Especially since graphite could create shortcuts in electrical systems. That whole "the Americans spent $12b, the Russians used a pencil" story is made-up nonsense, aimed at making the US govt look squanderous.

“... Russians used pencils ...” No matter what that e-mail chain says, no, Russia didn’t just give pencils to their cosmonauts. In fact, the USSR bought the same pens from Fisher that NASA did, and got the same discount for buying in bulk.
These Fisher's are metal, 'attractive', and famous. I've never tried one myself, but if you're looking for purely space pen functionality in a less expensive pen that you can loose and not fret over, then may I suggest the Uni-ball PowerTank Retractable Ballpoint Pen. These are widely available in blue, black, or red and in fine and bold point. They can be easily found for less than $2 bucks a piece in a 12 pack. Refills are also widely available but generally the refills cost as much or more then a whole new pen (ymmv).
International shipping rate is killing this drop for me. Maybe next time...
Does the refill fit into other pens? I would *LOVE* black FINE ink. I see that Amazon carries the pens and the refills.

I don’t know about the standard but I’ve bought the refills by themselves and put them into various pens. When you buy the refill packet (like from staples)it comes with an adapter for Parker style pens

Sorry for using a bag of salt to take these photos, but without any doubt in my mind at all, the Zebra F-701 is a good option under $7.00 (sometimes very well below that price) for what you're looking for. I currently, as seen below, have a Fisher PR4 inside of a Zebra F-701 with the plastic parts removed and replaced with brass from the Zebra F-402.

I don't know why the bullet is described as the space pen. The AG-7 is the real fisher space pen that went to orbit. The bullet is just a simple pocket pen that uses the pressurized cartridge. If you want the heritage, get the ag-7.
Honeybadgers
Because the pen body isn't the part that makes it a space pen, it's the pressurized cartridge.
I wish these would have more color options when they come out.

I wish we could get FINE, rather than just MEDIUM...
brenda52411
Just like girls. I prefer the fine ones over the mediums
Why do a lot of pens coming out now not have pocket clips. I've seen some sublime pens for work but then realised they have no clip.

Accessory clip is a must-have on these, cheap and works well.With the clip I can find my write-anything pen in the backpack in seconds else would be scrabbling around on the bottom.

Thankfully massdrop had the WE titanium pens drop there so I bought 2. They look great and come with a clip 😝
Writes upside down - perfect for writing in bed
Great pens. The actual quality of the ink on the paper isn't really the reason to buy these, but the dependability and versatility is unmatched. Matte black is my favorite, but I like the grip on the chrome.
Was thinking of buying some of these as gifts. Does anyone know if I was to let them sit around for like 9 months if the ink would be ok?
ashiraki
I have one that is 20 years old and the ink still works perfectly. So 9 months should be no problem.
ashiraki
i got several on the last drop. they are AWESOME. smooth as a baby s butt.
No 400CZN Copper Zirconium Nitride? Never? Never ever?
they sell from $15 to $18 on Amazon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've had a bad experience purchasing from amazon. There's been two times where i get sent used or fake pens.

If I have issues with something I purchase from Amazon, I return it. Are you a Prime member? I have had times when I ended up with an impossible seller, that was selling items as Prime items. Although I got free shipping to me, the cost to return an item was more than the item was worth. In those times, when trying to deal with an impossible seller, I contact Amazon and tell them that I am trying to return a defective item, and that it's going to cost me "$X" to return their broken item back to the seller. Amazon has always stood behind me and given me my money back, from Amazon, not the seller. I do buy a lot of things from Amazon, though, and don't return much.
The Russians used a pencil so their cosmonauts could write in space.

And graphite was terrible, it could break and send conductive material into the cabin. America used them too. But fisher invented the space pen using his own money and sold pens to Americans. Russians switched to grease markers and eventually... The Russians bought fisher space pens too.
