Fisher Space Pen

In a word- Yes. I am a fountain pen/writing instrument geek, but if I had to choose a single writing instrument to use for the rest of my life for all purposes, it would be a showdown between a double headed Sharpie and a Space pen for practicality's sake.
Also, Spacepen refills fit into a a lot of other pens. They even come with a detachable end cap so it fits where a gel refill would. I have several Sensa pens with the Fisher refill in them. The bodies are comfortable, have some class, and the fills are bullet proof. The Spacepens themselves are sturdy, take up little to no pocket space, and show some class themselves as well as functionality. Very much worth the money.

I bought the bullet Fisher space pen and it's just been nice to have a pen on me. I've never carried one before, but now that I've carried one, it makes sense to never be without a pen. Does it have to be a Fisher space pen? I don't really think so. It writes well. But every pen that puts ink on paper "writes well" in my opinion. Maybe I'm just not that passionate about pens, but it's only a pen! It's cool that it folds up and fits in a pocket and you don't feel it.

I recently bought a space pen with a rubbery tablet tip on the end of the cap. So far it has been more consistent and more reliable than other pens I've had. It is very short when capped, but when you put the cap on the end of the pen to write, then the pen is of average length and is very comfortable to hold and write with.
Opposite of my fountain pen, I just wish the space pen would write a little "wetter", with lines that look sharper and darker, more like your average gel pen or even like a Papermate "Inkjoy" pen.
- I guess the Inkjoy line is my standard for "quality of line". I love how solid, sharp, and dark the lines are, and especially how they don't soak through even the thinnest paper (so far).
- The Space Pen would be my standard for "always writes".
I wish I could have both in the same pen!
Another pen that seems to be amazingly good is the Avantstyle, which is a dirt-cheap clicky model I got at Staples (I think) just for grins (I was already there for something else). Both the blue and black (both medium) write very nicely, although I haven't had them for long enough to be able to grade their reliability.
I'm also interested in "tactical pens", but like wallets and key organizers, EDC has way too many Quickstarters and way too few "ready for immediate sale", so I kind of gave up on them for now.

Yes, space pens are very reliable and durable. Unfortunately I lost the one I had (a black one without a clip), so I got a M4B - Non-Reflective Military Matte Black Cap-O-Matic Space Pen (black pen with a clicky function to operate). Very happy with it so far
