See All Delivery options
Ink Color: Black

Inspired by mankind’s continuous push “off-world”, the Retro 51 Tornado Escape Fountain Pen brings a taste of space exploration to the masses. Finished with a printed design of insignia patches and space suit detailing across a base of ‘International Orange’ lacquer, this unique pen has been designed to look like NASA’s Advanced Crew Escape Suit. Featuring a screw close cap and gently tapered grip section, coupled with a broad profile and pleasing weight makes using the Retro 51 Tornado fountain pen a real joy. Completed with matt black trim and astronaut helmet design set in the finial, the Escape is a striking pen ideal for everyday astroNOTs like you and me. As Retro 51 says “Life is too short to carry an ugly pen!”
