Fisher Space Pens

bullet Fisher Space Pen

The Fisher Space Pen is the ultimate in dependability. Every Space Pen is guaranteed to perform in temperatures from -30 to 250 F, under water, in zero gravity, at any angle and even upside down!

Its reliability means it’s the only pen you’ll ever need.

When astronauts began to explore the reaches of outer space, Paul Fisher realized that there was no existing pen which could perform in its freezing cold or boiling hot vacuum.

Countless experiments and a common sense approach to findings resulted in the invention of the sealed and pressurized Fisher Space Pen cartridge and in 1967 after 18 months of rigorous testing by Nasa, the Space Pen was selected for use by astronauts.

Still used on manned space flights, the Fisher Space Pen is unconditionally guaranteed to give outstanding service both here on Earth and in Space.


Montegrappa

Montegrappa NeroUno

Montegrappa, the first Italian manufacturer of writing instruments, opened in Bassano del Grappa in 1912. A century of superb craftsmanship has passed for this Italian brand known around the world for its Italian creativity and style.

In the same historical building since 1912, Montegrappa has been a part of the lives of great men, and it has also witnessed moments of intense creativity and innovative breakthroughs. Ernest Hemingway and John Dos Passos, both Red Cross volunteer ambulance drivers during World War I, crossed the threshold of the original factory entrance on Via Cà Erizzo that was recently restored. That same entrance was among the first in Italy to see the arrival of celluloid, a precious material obtained from cotton that was already a protagonist of Montegrappa collections in the thirties.

Starting in the late thirties, the modern fountain pen became more than just a writing instrument and was transformed into an accessory that made a fashion statement. Thanks to the wide variety of colours, tasteful design, and special jeweler’s techniques (for which the Vicenza area is famous), Montegrappa became a recognized symbol of excellence. Although shapes and materials may change, all Montegrappa pens possess distinctive features: the octagonal shape, the rotating sphere on the end of the clip, and precious materials such as gold, silver, gems, and celluloid are the unique elements that have made history.
The entire Montegrappa range is divided into two large families: the Regular Range, composed of glamorous, beautifully designed accessories that make the daily task of writing much more enjoyable, and the Limited Editions, an extraordinary blend of craftsmanship and beautiful design inspired by the passions and myriad expressions of human creativity and coveted by collectors and connoisseurs.

Much admired and appreciated for its outstanding quality and traditional craftsmanship, Montegrappa has become a world ambassador of Italian style and elegance and is distributed in nearly 60 countries.


PenAgain

PenAgain Pens

Is writing uncomfortable? It's likely because you are using a stick shaped pen that makes you grip it forcefully and push down into the page. This muscular effort can trigger substantial pain for people who suffer from a wide spectrum of conditions, from writer's cramp all the way to Arthritis.

Unlike conventional pens that rely on the strength of your grip, the PenAgain's ergonomic design taps into the weight of your hand to apply ink to the page. The PenAgain allows you to focus on guiding rather than gripping so it avoids common pain triggers and helps you to write comfortably with ease.

Introducing the PenAgain... The right way to write.

Customer Testimonals

  • I just want to say thank you for your great customer service yet again. I ordered on Sunday, and the refills have arrived today (Tuesday). Simply brilliant. Mr A Hodges
  • Dear Fisher,
    My name is James Rippingale - I am a young poet and travel writer. In September 2011, during the height on the Thai monsoons and flooding, I undertook a 750 mile bicycle ride from the Northeastern tip to the South of Thailand.
    I bought one of your titanium space pens for the journey, and I am emailing you to both thank and congratulate you on the design, functionality, price and durability of it. The thing was absolutely indestructible. Several maladies befell it; it was dropped, run-over, soaked, nearly lost in the floodwater when it fell out of my pocket, soaked, dried in the sun and it NEVER stopped writing. I know it's primary use was for astronauts but I truly gave the pen a run for its money, and I have to say that, now back in England, it has most definitely replaced my old Parker 51 as the pen of choice.
    It is by far the single greatest writing instrument I have ever come across. This summer I will be undertaking a longer journey - a 6-month hike from New York to Los Angeles for a travel book, and am happy to say, my fisher shall be coming with me. I just wanted to email and thank you for producing such a wonderful, indispensable piece of kit. You also have my full permission to reproduce any part of this letter.
    Sincerely James
  • Dear Jane,

    Thank you very much for sending the correct refills. They fit my Tiffany pen perfectly! I want you to know that you provided the most efficient service I have received from a British retialer (on or off-line) in the 50 years I have lived in London. Not only efficient, but also very pleasant.

    Thank you!
    Sincerely,
    Michael
  • Dear GBA,
    I am just writing to tell you how impressed I was with the courtesy and efficiency of the lady who took my order for the pens. She was extremely polite, friendly and efficient which was much appreciated - so more these days when ordering" I was also amazed at the speed at which my order was delivered - the following day Many thanks to all concerned.

  • I received my "refurbished" pen on Saturday which is quality of service way beyond the call of duty or expectation! Thank you so much for your attention, and the swift way you dealt with this. It is really appreciated. with every best wish, Peter Smythe
  • Hi Frances,

    Thank you so much! We've just ordered some from your site. I had been looking for the term "Fragrances" under your Products tab, and of course initially, when I'd ordered the pen under Products/Montegrappa Pens, I was focused on pens only! Also, when I did a Google search for "nerouno montegrappa fragrance" your site didn't show up, at least not on the first two pages of results, anyway. Again, many thanks. Nerouno is such a delightful, utterly unique fragrance - I wish they made a women's version!

    All the best, Page
  • DEAR JANE,

    REGARDS
    MR ROBERT SPEIGHT
