Retro 51 Buzz Rescue Ballpoint Pen

Retro 51 Buzz Rescue Ballpoint Pen Review and Giveaway!

Welcome back to another Review and Giveaway! Retro 51 has recently released a new addition to their Rescue Pen line: the Retro 51 Buzz Rescue Ballpoint Pen. Retro 51 is great about supporting charities and other non-profit organizations who bring about good. Each pen in the Retro 51 Rescue pen line has a generous portion of all sales donated to a charity or non-profit organization for the Rescue of those animals. A portion of all sales from the Buzz Pen goes to support the NW Honey Bee Habitat Restoration. There has been quite a lot of talk about the Buzz Pen, so we’re bringing you this review so that you can know what the buzz is all about.

The Retro 51 Buzz Rescue Ballpoint Pen

The Buzz Pen has antique copper trim, as well as an antique copper clip. The clip and trim pair nicely with the golden “honey” yellow of the barrel. The Buzz Pen comes with an acid etched honeycomb texture along the barrel, which gives the pen a great tactile feature. Honeybees have been printed onto the barrel to look as though they are busy making honey. The pen also features a whimsical bear atop the finial of the pen.

The Retro 51 Buzz Rescue Ballpoint Pen comes in a bee themed protective tube casing. Also, the protective tube doubles as a pen stand for your pen! Inside the tube you will find foam padding where the pen rests, and some reading material from Retro 51. The Reading Material includes a Use and Care Guide, as well as an explanation about what the NW Honey Bee Habitat Restoration plans to do with the donations.

Included in the Buzz Pen is a Retro 51 Easy Flow 9000 Ballpoint Refill. The Easy Flow 9000 is a great refill that writes reliably and smoothly. However, any Parker-style refill or Schmidt Short Capless rollerball refill will also fit into the Buzz Pen.

 

 

Conclusion

The Retro 51 Buzz Rescue Ballpoint Pen is a great pen for a great cause. The dwindling population of the honeybee is something that effects us all, and this is one way we can all do something about it.

Retro 51 continues to produce cool pens, and many retailers are sponsoring wonderful versions. I appreciate that this pen supports an important cause, and also that the finish has texture to it.

I usually only buy and use fountain pens, but considered getting a nice ballpoint/rollerball for times I can’t use a fountain pen.

This bee one I would definitely buy. I love bees and used to keep bees, even though I don’t care for honey (except straight out of the hive). I also really like the copper accents.

Bees reminder me of one of the loveliest ladies I ever met, who happens to live in the northwest and cherished her hives. I am glad to see that Retro branches out, produces pens for everyone, and cares to support organizations by doing what they do best. I cannot wait to have this one in my collection!
