It can always be polished to restore its original look.
The Raw Brass Bullet Space Pen possesses unique antimicrobial benefits that are extremely useful today. We’ve all been there. Checking out at the grocery store, needing to sign your receipt, you try not to alert anyone to the current phobia we all have about touching items that others have touched and not knowing if it’s safe or clean. You immediately start thinking of all the people that came to that checkout register before you. Wondering, does everyone clean their hands like I do? Time seems to move in slow motion while we reach for that pen, hoping we can sign quickly enough to sanitize our hands and avoid contact with unknown bacteria. Well, at Fisher Space Pen we understand those concerns and we have a solution that can be helpful.
The raw brass composition of our 400-RAW is made of 85% Copper and 15% Zinc, making this pen a copper alloy that possesses antimicrobial properties, which were registered by the EPA in 2008. If you’re like us, you value any type of PPE that can be useful during today’s uncertain times. Fisher Space Pen is proud to bring to you an antimicrobial pen to help lessen the health risks we are faced with while providing support to Feeding America’s mission, making sure families have the ability to keep enough food on their tables.
When closed, the Bullet Space Pen is the perfect size to carry in your wallet, pocket, purse, car glove box, organizer, or toolbox. When opened it's a full-sized, evenly balanced writing instrument.
Each Bullet Space Pen will write upside down - at any angle, under water, through grease, in extreme temperatures (-30 to +250 degrees F), on almost any surface, three times longer than the average pen, and of course in the gravity free vacuum of space.
The original Bullet Space Pen was conceived in July of 1948 by Paul Fisher, who was soon machining a new pen design shaped from solid aluminum. This 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 composed of all brass.
Cited as an outstanding example of industrial art, the classic design of the Fisher Bullet Pen has a place in the permanent collection 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 Space Pen continues to be our most popular pen.
