It took me far too long to find a pen company that still makes their products in America, and as a college student going into law, I want to make sure I am writing with a quality piece as well as using something that is made in the best country on Earth.
It is by far one of my favorite possessions and the best pen I have ever used
Seriously the best pens I have ever used and the bullet design that fits easily into your front pocket feels so completely unobtrusive you may be forgiven to forget it was even there
But after some pretty good use it's started to come apart
Also, Fischer offers a great line-up of different color inks and different sized points
When I need it, whether it's raining, snowing, or upside down, it lays down a nice black line.
Users should know that the grip area is smooth not line grooved like the chrome
Biggest problem is when you try and write with this pen with enough force to form solid lines, your hand ends up sliding down the sides of the pen because of how smooth they are!All in all it is a neat pen that seems solid as a rock, and I guess it's functional...?
You have to hold this at 60 to 90 degree to produce decent lines otherwise the tips starts scratching the
Love the pen, not a fan of how it writes, majorly regret the brass choice and how it patinas
I'm hoping that over time, they'll develop a patina and blur together
The raw brass gets a nice patina from discoloration over time
My bad for not carefully reading the details about the Raw Brass finish: "Over time each pen will develop a unique patina as it responds to the environment, owner's body chemistry, and the way he or she handles their pen
The Raw Brass is perfect for a pen and it acquires a dark patina just like a spent round does
I also enjoy the "vintage" look that takes over the pen after about a week of use, as the raw brass finish ages quite nicely
If you don't want that stained brass look then I would recommend buying the gold coated pen.
If the tarnished look isn't for you, either don't get the brass model, or have polish on hand because it will start to look tarnished after about a week
I like the look of tarnished brass, which is why I chose this finish.
I honestly love the look and feel of this pen, but the o ring seems like it may wear down, and the brass coating looks to be pretty thin, so we'll see how it turns out!Writes decently as well, it's definitely a good feeling pen overall.
Best travel pens as they are small and have great ink and writing feel
nice brassCONS:~ gets slippery in hand~ doesn't write smooth - ink quality of normal bic pen
Great pen and ink, solid construction, but overall feels slightly thin.
I've had Fisher Space Pens before but it seems they improved the ink
After 2 months, this little pen has become my daily carry pen.-because of the encapsulated design, there is little chance of it leaking on my clothes.-when stowed, it will fit ~sideways~ into the breast pocket of a dress shirt and keep my from looking like a Poindexter, or an accountant, or an accountant named Poindexter.-You get 2 pens in one as you can let it tarnish, or keep it polished to a mirror finish.-I think that a finer point refill will solve my issue of poor ink delivery
