The original Bullet Space Pen was conceived in July of 1948. Paul Fisher was soon machining a new pen design shaped from solid aluminum. It became the first Fisher ball point pen, the #400 Bullet Pen with Stylus tip and removable clip, is arguably the most popular pen of the twentieth century. This pen is now all brass with a Chrome finish.When closed, the Bullet Space Pen is the perfect size to carry in your wallet, pocket, purse, car glove box, organizer or toolbox. When open it's a full sized, evenly balanced writing instrument. The patented ink cartridge was designed by Paul Fisher for NASA in the 1960's enabling it to write in temperatures from -30 to +250 degrees Fahrenheit, under water, in zero gravity, at any angle, even upside down.

Stylus tip not for newer touch screens
By An old Amiga User
As a pen, these are terrific. Easy to carry, won't explode, and, of course, write anywhere.
The stylus point will not work on capacitive touch screens (I-Devices, etc.), or active digitizer screens (like the Wacom pen enabled tablets from Lenovo and HP). It will work on the older resistive type touch screens still used in restaurant and medical settings...and of course, if you are still using a Palm Pilot, it will work with that as well.
If you need a stylus to work with capacitive screens, get the Fisher Space Bullet Grip Space Pen with Conductive Stylus (BG4/S).

Bullet Space pens are pretty awesome in general
By J. Adelsberger
Bullet Space pens are pretty awesome in general. I was a little bummed it doesn't work with my iphone, but further investigation revealed I need to read the fine print better. They are perfect for shoving in your pocket and always having a pen. Really durable, I had a previous normal bullet that fell onto the driveway during the winter and was later found slightly bent but 100% functional ( It was either ran over by a car or shot out through a snow blower).

Almost exactly what I wanted at a reasonable price with speedy shipping. The stylus does not work on my Apple iPhone
