Fisher Space Pens (price ranges from $20 to $100 U.S. depending on the model) are extraordinary pens, which since 1950, have earned the Fisher Space Pen Company a reputation for producing the most innovative and dependable writing objects, anywhere on Earth. Unlike ordinary ball pens, which rely on gravity to feed the ink, the replaceable Space Pen cartridge is pressurised, meaning the user can write at any angle, even upside down! The life of a Space Pen is over 100 years, and if that wasn’t enough, it can write on wet surfaces, pictures and even underwater!
