Fisher Astronaut Space Pen with Commemorative Moon Landing Engraving. Chrome Plated Astronaut Space Pen. This is the original Fisher Space Pen that was used on the Apollo 7 space mission in 1968 after two years of testing by NASA and has been used on all manned space flights since then.

The design and construction of this pen has not changed in 36 years. The pen you buy today is exactly the same as the one taken to the moon in 1969. It is a heavy pen and the weight rests reassuringly in your hand as you write. The AG7 is made from solid brass with an extremely hard Chrome plating. It has a very positive and substantial feeling click mechanism. You press down on the top to extend the refill and press the side button to retract the refill. Its special design assures you that you'll always retract the point before you slide it into your pocket. It's constructed of all brass and steel components of the highest quality and is made in the USA.

All Astronaut Pens are attractively packaged in heavy duty gift boxs with flock lining and come with a pamphlet describing the history of the Fisher Space Pen.

AG7s are used on all NASA Apollo and Shuttle missions, ISS International Space Station, Russian Soyuz and MIR space flights, French ARIANE Space Program, Everest North Face Ski Expedition

Engraving on top half of pen says:'This AG7 Model Pen was used as a tool to save THE APOLLO 11. Man's first landing on the moon July 20th 1969.

The History of the Space Pen

Fisher Space Pen rose to prominence when founder Paul Fisher invented a retractable, pressurized pen called the Anti-Gravity 7 (#AG7) that worked flawlessly in zero gravity aboard the first manned Apollo mission in 1968. Five decades later the company continues to thrive with pens still flown aboard every manned space flight.

After Paul Fisher earned NASA as a customer for his revolutionary Space Pen, he continued to focus his efforts on developing unique, quality products. All Fisher Space Pens are handcrafted and able to write underwater, over grease, at any angle, upside down, 3-times longer than the average pen, in extreme temperatures ranging from (-30°F to +250°F), and in zero gravity.

"People find that our technology is by far the most reliable from both a shelf-life and environmental standpoint." says Cary Fisher, now co-owner and Paul's son.

One of Paul Fisher's first ideas was for the iconic Bullet Pen, named for its sleek rounded ends. This particular Space Pen is in The Museum of Modern Art's permanent collection as a symbol of American industrial design. This mid-century modern pen is still available today in 16 colors and finishes and remains one of Fisher Space Pen's most popular gift items.

"The stick pen is a consumer-industrial product," Cary says. "The Space Pen is a gift item."

Fisher's varieties of pens - such as the Trekker Space Pen comes with a breakaway lanyard, making it easily attachable to a belt loop, backpack, purse or climbing gear - are manufactured and assembled in the company's 30,000-square-foot warehouse in Boulder City, Nevada.

Approximately 65 employees create the company’s unique line of high-quality writing instruments. “Our whole culture is to treat people with respect and dignity. I know everybody by first and last name. Every job is valuable to the company,” Fisher says. Today, Cary runs the company with Donald “Dock” Wong, who has been at Fisher Space Pen for almost 50 years.

Cesar Reveles one of their plant managers and loyal employee for 27 years notes, "We're a small company, but we're all focused on one thing: making a great product. We’re upholding the whole notion of 'Made in America,' which, I think, still counts
