Retro51 Tornado Classic Lacquer Black Rollerball
The TORNADO rollerblade. This Retro51 pen hides under a "retro-classic" aspect a proven technology of a capless roller cartridge. Its twist mechanism (a half-turn) makes the roller ball extend or retract. If you are not a fan of roller you can replace the cartridge to transform it into a ballpoint pen. The body of the pen is made of metal coated with a glossy black acrylic lacquer. The twist wheel is guilloché for good grip. It is also equipped with a clip that will allow you to hang it on a pocket or notebook cover. The Tornado rollerball is a beautiful, classic pen that you will keep for a long time or that will make a great gift.
About the brand.
Retro51® was created by Georges Kartsotis in 1990 in Dallas, Texas. Initially, the company manufactured “gift objects” in a retro spirit of the “American way of life” of the 1950s. Quality, finish and design have always been part of the brand's DNA. Very quickly, the quality of their pens was unanimously recognized and praised by users and collectors. After 30 years of activity, in 2021, the founder and animator of the brand Georges Kartsotis retired. 3 collectors took over the brand, wishing to perpetuate the spirit of this great adventure and maintaining the high standards of Retro51®. The brand's claim has not changed, "Life is too short to carry an ugly pen!®".
