The Matte Black Shuttle Space Pen is stylish, functional, and reliable with a storied history in human space flight.
Performs in temperatures from -30º F to +250º F, underwater, in zero gravity, at any angle–even upside down! The ultimate in dependability! The choice of ski patrols, search and rescue teams, law enforcement agencies, armed forces, and everyone who demands reliability in a writing instrument. Care: Keep point retracted when not in use and avoid hard contact to refill tip to prevent damage to ballpoint. Dry pen out as fully as possible if submerged in liquid to prevent rust/corrosion.
In 1967, after over two years of rigorous testing by NASA, the Fisher Space Pen was officially selected for use by the Astronauts of Apollo 7 and has been used on all manned space flights since. The Shuttle Space Pen is the latest installment to our Astronaut pen line and was introduced during the Space Shuttle Program as a light-weight alternative to the original AG7 ‘Anti-Gravity Pen’, which was first patented by Paul C. Fisher in 1965. The Shuttle Pen is now considered to be the pen of choice of the astronauts on the ISS today.
Each CH4B Matte Black Shuttle Space Pen is composed of solid brass with a matte black finish and gold accents, and all are proudly produced in the USA! The CH4B has a modernized appearance and is both thinner & lighter than its predecessor the AG7. It features a unique dual-action knock mechanism that extends the tip via the plunger on the end, with a release button on the side to retract it. This side retract button has a satisfying sound and feel to it, ensuring that you will always remember to retract the point before putting the pen away in a bag or pocket. Shuttle Pens are packaged in a heavy duty gift box with flock lining and each includes a guarantee and re-order pamphlet with a brief description of the history of Fisher Space Pen Co.
