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!

Customer Reviews

Retro 51 Tornado Rescue
I have the bamboo pen and while I really enjoy the look and feel of the pen, I don't use it much - I almost always reach for either a different Retro 51 Tornado or a different pen entirely.

Retro 51 Smithsonian Tornado
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.

Retro 51 Tornado Popper
Tornado Poppers (in rollerballs) make the perfect gifts for my friends who are not partial to fountain pens. I can find one that suits almost anybody in design, and they all function superbly.

Retro 51 Jupiter
Another beautiful Retro 51 from Penchalet.
If like me, you are a Retro 51 collector, Penchalet should be on your list as one of the top sellers because of their excellent selection including beautiful pens like this Jupiter one . Now that I know Retro 51 will continue under new and excellent ownership, I will continue to look to Penchalet to expand my collection!

Retro 51 Vintage Metalsmith
As someone who loves both fountain pens and aircraft, I'm not sure why I waited so long to get this pen or the P-51 version! I have a half-dozen Retro 51 rollerball pens and use them daily and gift them to friends/family, so it's not about that. Anyhow, finally got this beautiful Corsair model with a M nib. First of all, a salute to Retro for including a converter, 2 ink carts and a full and very detailed instruction manual. I hate it when I'm expected to pay extra (Platinum for one)for a converter when you're already paying a premium for a pen. That's just annoying. So again, kudos to Retro. Good solid pen, the M nib is very wet, but was ready to write instantly and is very smooth. As usual, anything from Retro is a stand-out performer (and no, I don't work for them)!

Retro 51 Typewriter
One of the things I appreciate about Retro 1951 is their ability to create uniquely relevant designs that span generations. The Typewriter model has been my go-to for the last couple months because I like being able to feel the 3D texture of the keys. As with any Retro 1951 pen, the combination of pen tip and color allow for whatever your writing needs.

Retro 51 #119 Train
Pen Chalet and Retro 51 have collaborated in designing an outstanding addition to the train series. The etched design on the barrel makes this pen stand out. Like all Retro 51 cap less rollerball pens, this pen writes smoothly. This limited edition numbered pen will provide years of writing enjoyment.

Retro 51 Vintage Metalsmith
This is a great looking pen and writes very smoothly. I have more than 10 fountain pens and I don't write terribly often. Often the pen I pick up has dried up ink if I haven't used it in a couple of months. Never happened with this one.
