Pros: Durability, Refill Quality, Materials, Overall Quality
Excellent writing instrument with defensive potential
I picked this pen up at the Benchmade factory last month. This is the best writing instrument I've ever used. The ink refills are made by Fisher (Space Pens) for Benchmade. Just looking at his thing you can tell it has potential for last-ditch self defense, or where discretion is needed. It writes smoothly, the cap snaps on both ends, firmly open and closed. The pocket clip is world class-everything you'd expect from Benchmade, in a writing pen. Just like all Fisher Space Pens, it'll write upside down, vertically, in cold temperatures etc. The ink seems to be as close to 'permanent' as I've ever seen in a ballpoint. The ink cartridge is stabilized inside the tube using a small spring, so there's a nice little bounce when you write, it's very comfortable too. These pens are totally worth every dime, I paid full retail down at Benchmade, it's an even better value with Knifecenter's pricing! Fans of fine pens and Benchmade knives will not be disappointed.
