Noodling around on the Fisher Space Pen website this week I finally found what is arguably the perfect Blackhorse pen.  A special edition 2014 Year of the Horse space pen in black.  Nice.  On sale under $15.  (the refills alone cost $7)

OK...yeah, I ordered one.  

Free engraving.  Mine will say, “Blackhorse - 11th U. S. Cavalry”




Just call me Spike Spiegel...Space Cowboy.

Nice pen. Weren’t they the pens that astronauts took to space in the 70’s?

I think as of Apollo 7 in 1968, every astronaut was issued one, not just in the 70’s.  Though there are now many models the one pictured below is the specific issue pen...still made EXACTLY the same (claimed) in every detail.












The site...lots of specials going on right now.
