Now this is a total indulgence (like none of the other things here are either)… and I am not at all a pen person. But a co-worker of mine has switched back to using a fountain pen… very fancy. Too fancy for me. But when I saw this, I said… that is RIGHT UP MY ALLY. I waited about a month… and still wanted it. Plus, I’ve always wanted a space pen for all those times of doing crosswords in bed or laying in the grass.
So ordered one of these from CountyComm… I think the only dealer as they created these for a government order. It’s a nice hefty pen… my favorite knurling around the tube. The pen itself is an official Fisher Space Pen in Med Black. So far, it writes beautifully. Nothing else really to say… it’s a pen. An expensive one but will run you the same as any of the decent pens you got at graduation. Only bad thing is that the cap doesn’t fit on the back… so when writing, there’ll be two pieces. At least it won’t scratch the finish. And I think this one looks so much cooler. Hopefully… won’t lose it or lend it to someone who doesn’t give it back!
Came in a cool tube too.
