Blackwing 602When it comes to the best pencils you can write with, the Blackwing 602 is the only pencil to reach for.

Fisher Space Pen Is The Best EDC Pen

fisher space pen bullet

How many times have we all been on the phone, and the caller wants to give us a phone number to jot down? Problem is that there's never a pen around when you need it, so you have to go searching for one.

Now, after a couple moments of desperate searching, you've finally found a pen, but as you go to copy the numbers down, you find out it doesn't work. You gotta ask the caller to hold on another minute while you search for another elusive pen, which you eventually find in the basement in a your tool box.

You Need The Fisher Space Pen

The Fisher Space Pen "Bullet", specifically is small enough to fit into the fifth pocket of your jeans. Because it's also a space pen, you can rely on it delivering ink to your writing surface in even the most extreme conditions. Forget about having to search for a pen. You have one in your pocket, ready to go. From taking critical field notes in your journal in a torrential downpour to chronicling your trek up K2 (and everything in between), the Fisher Space Pen is ready when you need it most.

The Fisher Space Pen's pressurized cartridge will reliably work in temperatures from -30ºF to +250ºF, and will work in even colder climates when you keep it close to your body to maintain a higher warmth level. The Fisher Space Pen was used on missions up Everest, in the hottest of deserts, under water expeditions and yes, in zero G -- outer space. This pen works reliably the first time and every time until it's dry (don't forget to get some refills, and make sure they're the pressurized ones.)

My Fisher Space Pens

I carry the bullet with me everywhere. I also carry a couple other pens, but this one is the one that I'll pull out when I'm in the rain, when it's winter and my bag's been in a frozen car all day, or if it's been baking in the sun in the summer time.

I use the pressurized refills like they're their own pens. I "cap" the pens using thin coffee stirs that you get at 7-11 in the coffee bar. I cut the stir a bit longer than the narrow part of the shaft so that the ball point doesn't touch anything. I have three in use:

  • Condor MA45 iPouch
  • Condor MA26 Gadget Pouch
  • In my car's glove compartment

The actual bullet pen stays with the "Rite in the Rain" notebook.

I prefer the PR4B Black Ink Bold Point Space Pen Pressurized Cartridges which are 1.3mm bold lines. Its easier to see the lines in low light, broader lines for better weathering and just a nicer feel, in my opinion than the medium and fine points.

The best one for EDC / Pocket use is the Fisher 400 series Space Bullet Space Pen. It's smooth, there's no edges so it doesn't get snagged on anything as easily as a conventional pen. When capped, the pen is only 3.75" long, but when in use, it's 5.25" - perfect for comfortable writing.

If you are going to be using the pen with gloves on a lot, then you'll probably want to go for the Fisher 725B Trekker Space Pen. It has knurling around the housing giving your gloves a sure grip on the pen.

  • Make Free Calls To Regular Phones With Android Phones

    Free calls repurpose old android phone 1960Perhaps you've upgraded phones over the years and have an old android phone laying in a drawer or storage box.

    With all the open Wi-Fi hotspots that you can find now (places like McDonalds, Starbucks and Taco Bell probably even have it), You can repurpose that old Android phone to be useful again. Provided that it's at least Android 3, many popular calling apps work, but most have a limitation that they can only call other people who use the app for free. If you want to call landlines and other cellular phones, then you'll end up paying money to make the call. As of this article, Google Voice via Hangouts and Hangouts Dialer is the only service that allows you to make calls throughout the USA for free to any phone.

    My name's Tom Wilde, and I am a chef and foodie, and honored to guest blog here on the Everyday Carry. While my general manager told me I cannot disclose which Chicago restaurant that I work at, It is one of the busier upscale places you can go.

With the loss of the extra load carrying capacity, I had to make some tough choices about what I was going to carry every day.
