That's not all. It's metal body and black matte finish have repeatedly stood up to anything and everything the US Armed Forces have thrown its way. This pen has been shown to function at temps from -30°F to an insane 400°F - no more having your pen freeze up in winter weather. It'll even work well over soaking wet or grease-stained paper, something unheard of in an ink pen. Makes an outstanding tool for aviation maintenance technicians, line service employees, CFIs, and pro pilots. An affordable, exceptionally rugged item that's truly out of this world.
Excellent addition to the flight bag.
I love this product. I do crossword puzzles in bed, and this pen allows me to write with the pen in the upwards position. Other pens will stop working. I was pleased with Pilot Mall, the price was good and delivery was prompt.
Nice basic pen with the great Fisher Space pen cartridge. Good value, tough looks and great function like all the Space pens.
I stumbled across the Space Pen in a surplus catalog years ago and don't know what I'd do without it. When my original was lost I was lost until I found it here at Pilot Mall! I bought a spare this time and ink refills. Love the pen, it's cool looking and works as advertised, you won't be disappointed in the pen or the service from Pilot Mall.
I've owned this type of pen for many years. Typical use is in my car as it always works when I need to write something, even in the dead of an Iowa winter. I've noticed, though, that my pens, at least, have not lasted very long before they run out of ink. I'll see what happens with this latest one but since I'm now retired, I won't use it as much (old one's were used often at work) and it may not matter. But that's why I always buy a refill with a pen. Not sure if the pen is full of ink or is not filled up on purpose so the user will have to buy refills more often. But that's the only reason I give it a 4 instead of a 5. Also, I think the website should clearly identify the point size (fine or medium) as I looked for that info for quite awhile before purchasing my latest pen. I actually prefer a fine point, but the Space Pen medium point is acceptable.
