The Thunderbird Retractable Pen is part of the The Fisher Space Pens Aviation Series. This series also includes a Thunderbird Mechanical Pencil. You can but them individually or get them as a set in an impressive gift box.
What makes them Thunderbirds? It is actually the United States Air Force Thunderbirds ink pen. It was intentionally designed with a gripping knob so that pilots could easily retrieve and replace the pens from the lower leg pocket of their flight suit. Pretty clever, huh?
The barrel of the pen is engraved with the word Thunderbird and the the knob of both the pen and pencil have the Thunderbird emblem in color. Both of these top of the line writing instruments are 5 inches long with a .375 diameter barrel. The pen uses medium point black ink while the pencil uses .9 mm lead. These are nice high-end gift options for any aviation fan.
If your gift target is not high end and is not an aviation fan, then take a look at some of the other Fisher Pens at Cyber Space Pens. I have it on good authority that the Chrome X Marks makes and excellent gift (my friend loves the one I bought her for Christmas). The Rainbow Titanium Nitride is another very safe bet. It is a very popular pen.
