I suppose you mean the Space Pen. It is now being sold here at a price of just $25 to $80. :P

Just thought that you might find the following quote from The Space Review interesting.

The Million Dollar Space Pen Myth is just that, a myth. The pens never cost a lot of money and were not developed by wasteful bureaucrats or overactive NASA engineers. The real story of the Space Pen is less interesting than the myth, but in many ways more inspiring. It is not a story of NASA bureaucrats versus simplistic Russians, but a story of a clever capitalist who built a superior product and conducted some innovative marketing. That story, however, is a little harder to sell to a public that believes what it wants to believe.

That is one expensive pen. But well worth the price tag.
