3nding posted a topic in It Writes, But It Is Not A Fountain Pen ....I use a fountain pen for pretty much all the hand writing I do. The only exception is when I go in the lab. In that situation I usually carry a Parker Jotter Flighter with a Fisher Space Pen refill inside. One thing that as annoyed me ever since I started using that combo to remplace the Space Zebra (see https://penthusiast.wordpress.com/2014/07/25/the-space-zebra-f-7401/) I lost and was to lazy to make another copy of is that the tip of the Space Pen insert wiggles around when I write because the Space Pen refill has a slightly smaller diameter at the tip than the standard Quink refill. This has been a problem with multiple different Flighter Jotters. This makes writing with this ballpoint much more annoying than it should be, so I was wondering if anybody had come up with a practical solution to that problem (I've thought of putting a bit of tape around the end to make it bigger, but it seems like it will create other inconveniences as byproducts). Thank you all very much in advance, 3nding
Hello everyone I've been asked to give some data about the CV of the CH4 Shuttle Space Pen by Fisher Co. that's somehow based on the original design of the AG7 which was first used in space by astronauts on Apollo 7 in 1968 here are the questions 1- Was CH4 used in NASA space program? when? 2- When was the first line of production? actually it's so important for us to find answers and we will be so thankful for any help Best Regards
Even though I love my fountain pens, I don't really like bringing them with me on business trips, especially not if I'm flying. I have been looking at the orignal model, AG7, but I think it's a bit too expensive for me (it's a ballpoint). I have also had my eyes on the Bullet model because of the price (however it looks quite cool as well), but I would like a capless version. Now I found the Shuttle model, which is much cheaper at domestic web shop than the AG7, almost as cheap as the Bullet. The web shop has two versions of the Shuttle model to choose from: CH4 http://images.spacepen.com/ch4_frontview_open_400.png and B4 http://images.spacepen.com/b4_frontview_open_400.png Anyone who have tried both these models and can tell pros and cons? Grip, finish, etc.. Also, the point sizes. Medium or fine? How do they compare to fountain pens in line widths?
