Made in the USA; Fisher M4B Chrome and Black Cap-O-Matic Space Pen. The pen is metal and it has a solid spring driving the cap-o-matic click top which is the only moving part. The ink is smooth and doesn't smear. It will write on the inside of a butter wrapper, underwater, upside down, extreme temperatures and just about anywhere. The refills are really cool and functional. Charged with Nitrogen filled Thixotrophic ink, providing a steady, smooth stream of ink regardless of gravity or grease. Just touch the pen to your writing surface and the ink flows. Best of all, there are no loose parts inside the barrel, so you don't have to be careful of things like tiny springs when you are changing the refill and this is a definite plus point. The pen comes with a global international warranty against manufacturing defects.
