The Bullet Pen is a wonderfully simple and practical design. With the cap on, the whole thing is tiny, smooth, and well sealed so it's tough enough for life in pockets and bags. Uncap it and put the cap on the back, and it's a full-sized pen that's comfortable to write with, and uses the super-reliable and long-lasting pressurised Space Pen refills. Measures just 95mm long when capped, but extends to 134mm when posted for writing.
The original Bullet Space Pen was conceived in July of 1948. Paul Fisher was soon machining a new pen design shaped from solid aluminum. It became the first Fisher ball point pen, the 400 Bullet Pen, and arguably the most popular pen of the twentieth century. This pen is now all brass with a Red Cherry Translucent finish.
Cited as an outstanding example of industrial art, the classic design of the Fisher Bullet Pen has been exhibited for years in the New York Museum of Modern Art. The Bullet's timeless styling has been the topic of many art books and magazine articles. Often imitated, but never duplicated, the Fisher Bullet continues to be a very popular pen.
