Great Pen, Even if I am Not Writing in Outer Space

by

When the cap is placed on top of the barrel it rests well in the bend of your hand. The ridges around the barrel where the thumb and fingers grasp the pen provide good grip and control of the pen while writing. When the cap is placed over the barrel to close the pen, the pen is less than half its length. Very compact. The flow of ink is smooth and consistent. It has not clumped in usual spots of writing, such as at the first depression of the pen on paper to form a letter. The ink does take a bit longer to dry than does the ink from a Cross pen cartridge. Running my hand over the ink after waiting thirty seconds produced some, but not excessive, smearing. The reason for giving the pen four stars is that it does not come with a clip to attach the pen to the elastic wrap of a Moleskine journal (wrapped in a new Walnut Moleskine journal cover). I did order a clip from Fisher Space Pen for $2. I am very glad the space program has given us Tang, Silly Putty, and Space Pens.

Story

Dave loses pens a lot. His favorite pen to use (and lose) is the Fisher Space Pen. Instead of trying to beat Fisher at their own game, he decided to just stamp the Saddleback Leather logo on his favorite Fisher Pen. So now when he loses a pen, it’s more like a message in a bottle. Or at least, a Saddleback-branded pen that a castaway could use to write a message and put it in a bottle. What about castaways in space, you ask? Not a problem; the ink is pressurized for use in zero gravity.
