Ink Color: Black

Dedicated to the iconic Columbia space shuttle, the first NASA orbiter to reach space, this limited edition Tornado Rollerball Pen pays tribute to the scientific achievements of the many whom flew onboard. Printed with graphics that emulate the shuttle’s design, the pen is completed with the NASA logo and black trim. Limited to a run of 1958 pieces (the year NASA was founded), the twist top finial features the pens individual serial number and the Astronaut Scholarship Fund (ASF) logo. For each Retro 51 Tornado Columbia Space Shuttle Rollerball Pen purchased, a donation is made to the ASF to help inspire the next generation of astronauts, explorers and scientists. Utilising a capless rollerball refill the Tornado rollerball pen glides effortlessly across the page, whilst the twist action cap has knurled detailing for additional grip. The broad profile and pleasing weight make using the Tornado a real joy. As Retro 51 says “Life is too short to carry an ugly pen!”
