The Fisher Space Pen, an EDC standard: The Full Nick Shabazz Review

The Fisher Space Pen is *huge* in the EDC world, and is one pen you know will *always* write.

The Space Pen is a pen which trades the ability to write pleasantly for the ability to write everywhere. If you write seldom but strangely, you want a space pen, but if you write often, you want something else.

Fisher still producing this after the Russians figured using a pencil in space is all it took? LOL

I have been using a fisher space pen for 30 plus years, it was basically the first pen to use SAFETY INK that cannot be washed off a check. Sometimes the ink will gob at the tip, wipe it with a paper towel before using, i also replace the refill minimally every two years, needed or not. True its not as smooth as say a Mont Blanc, but drop a monty and say goodbye, the Fisher will ask for more.

I like that it gives you different shades of dark depending of pressure. You can draw more freely with that. Plus it always writes, so you don’t have to “check” if it’s ready to write.

Picked up 14 of these refills at a Staples in Manhattan, N.Y. The date on the cartridges were 2003. I paid 1.00 for each cartridge. Blue ink fine point. I could not believe it.I don't know if they knew what they were selling.Maybe they just went by the date, but I guess they didn't know that the shelf life is over 50 years. Now I have a supply of refills that will last me the rest of my life. Best pens ever. They take a licking and keep on writing.

I mean, it's not like my Bic or PaperMate pen can write upside down too…. I think they're quite over-rated.

I have a stowaway in my wallet, it comes in handy. For being the same pressure as a car tire it would not explode in the pocket, or other place it is. True the writing could be better, as an EDC pen it works for me. If a smoother writing pen is needed I have some others are available in my EDC.

I deliver pizza and carried one for people to sign their receipts,and it worked great when the dumb fuckers weren't dropping my goddamn pen, constantly. Denting it, scratching it, forcing the cap too hard on so that you can't fucking pull the cap back off, trying to click the back when there is no fucking button.
Lost it when I got drunk Cinco de Mayo, ordered a new telescoping one.

why did you test it on a roughed up cutting board… makes your review seem a little less credible.

I recently had a 30 year old gold plated Fisher Space Pen that refused to screw close. Customer Service at Fisher Space Pen is tops, and they made the repair with a quick turn around at no cost to me.

I absolutely adored this review and instantly subscribed. I currently EDC a Pilot G2 1.0mm, but am looking for something fancier with replaceable cartridges. Thanks for touching upon the writing quality, as I find that very important. Seems like a Space Pen is best for an emergency backup. Thanks for the video!

thanks for the review now i know it just sucks and also m not planning space trips anytime soon so pens worth <$1 is Best for me🙌.
