About the Retro 51 Smithsonian Tornado

Each Retro 51 Smithsonian Tornado has a twist knurl top to extend the rollerball refill. This officially licensed pen comes in different styles and designs.

Each Retro 51 Smithsonian Tornado Rollerball Pen will be individually numbered on the top ring and comes with a Smithsonian commemorative tube.

The Retro 51 Smithsonian Collection Tornado rollerball pens come fitted with a Schmidt short capless refill, but the pen can also accept a Parker-style ballpoint refill.

Retro 51 Raven Steals the Sun

James Peter Johnson Tlingit honors his ancestors through his pursuit of the Tlingit art form. In the Retro 51 Raven Steals the Sun Tornado rollerball pen, Johnson portrays the traditional Tlingit origin story of a Raven bringing light into the world. The Tlingit artwork is silkscreened on the stainless barrel, varnished in a matte clear coating, and finished with antique silver accents, and the sun logo on the finial.

Retro 51 Woodland Hummingbird and Flowers Tornado

Dr. Shirley Brauker draws from her Little River Band of Ottawa culture alongside personal experience as creative inspiration. She uses her trademark "carved cut-out" technique to combine the artwork and legends of the past with contemporary materials of the present, keeping story-telling traditions alive and preserving Woodland art. The design inspired by Brauker's carved cut-out technique is acid-etched onto the pen's barrel and then plated in stonewashed copper with accents to match and the sun logo on the finial.

Retro 51 Dino Fossil Tornado

With an etched barrel that makes the fossils jump off the pen, the result is a stunning 3D design that you must see to truly appreciate. Created to showcase the National Museum of Natural History.

Retro 51 Corona Tornado

The Corona commemorates the National Museum of African History and Culture building in Washington D.C. with its similar texture to the ornamental bronze-colored exterior. Lead designer David Adjaye pays homage to the intricate ironwork crafted by enslaved African Americans in Louisiana, South Carolina, and elsewhere through the use of this design.

The Smithsonian Hummingbird Retro 51 is one of the most beautiful of all the pens from Retro 51, in my opinion. The design and artwork are superb, and the finish is gorgeous.

Given as a gift because I enjoyed my "Typewriter" pen so much! These pens are weighty, well constructed, and comfortable to hold. Oh, they also write well.

I love these pens. Red is my favorite color--and the brass-trimmed red Vega is a pleasure to write with.
