About Discovery Retro 51 Smithsonian Tornado

Each Retro 51 Smithsonian Tornado has a twist 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 pen comes fitted with a Schmidt short capless but the pen can also accept a Parker style ballpoint refill.

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 Vega Tornado

Modeled after the Lockheed Vega airplane, an American six-passenger high-wing monoplane that Amelia Earheart flew. Each pen has a red barrel with etched lines for the rivets and seams of the airplane skin. The Retro 51 Vega Tornado commemorates the National Air and Space Museum.


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.

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.

I ordered the Shuttle Discovery as a gift for my dad. He likes the design of the pen. He was a little disappointed with the rollerball refill that came with the pen. I swapped out the rollerball refill for a Parker pen refill and dad was a happy camper. Besides life is too short to use a boring pen; I think that is another great feature of Retro 51 pens, they will accept and with other company's refills.

The Smithsonian Space Shuttle Discovery is quite possible the best Retro 51 in my collection. Stunning looks, great details, and oh yeah, it writes nice too!
