Retro 51 Pens

Retro 51
With a mission statement like "Life is too short to carry an Ugly Pen!", Retro 51 is all about bright colors and unique themes. Always searching for the latest theme or trend, Retro 1951 combines modern trends with vintage quality and ideals.

Started in 1990, Retro 1951 focused on unique gift writing instruments. They wanted to create a pen that shows a bit about the writer from the design. A pen makes a perfect gift that will last for years and is a token of love and friendship. Each Retro 51 has been designed, created and packaged with nostalgic Americana.

In 1997, Retro 51 release the Tornado in three colors: red, blue and green. The retractable rollerball pen was an instant hit and is still available today in a broader color and theme selection. Just like a tornado, this pen will blow you away.

Since then Retro 51 has expanded their offering including such items as fountain pens. By an nostalgic pen designed by Retro 51 today!

Pen Chalet is an Authorized Dealer of Retro 51 pens and writing instruments.

Awesome pen design and quality. Totally unique design with an original pen package that sits well on your desk and doubles as a pen holder. Looks like a pen that has come back from the future in a time machine.

Tornado Vintage Metalsmith
What a cool pen! The detail in the metal is really great. Every rivet has some depth to it as well as the “panel” seam lines. It’s a very detailed pen with an authentic looking vintage aircraft finish. I’m really impressed with the pen! Retro 51 did a great job. The rollerball refill is also extremely smooth. As a bonus, these limited Retro 51 pens tend to increase in value as well once they go out of production. I kick myself for not getting the Tiger Shark model while it was still being made.

Tornado Rescue
Love ALL Retro1951 pens! I especially love the Tornado HoneyBee rescue pen. The artwork is amazing, the texture and color of the pen are especially appeasing, and I love, Love, LOVE the finial of the bear. Great pen that is a great addition to my growing Retro1951 collection. This was the first of two pens I purchased from Pen Chalet. They have excellent customer service and are excellent at product fulfillment. I'll be buying more from Retro1951 and more from Pen Chalet!

Awesome pen, especially at this price point. The schmidt p8127 refill is the best out there in my book, but if you find it too broad the p8126 is finer and quite good as well.
