Originally introduced in 1942, the Corsair is a World War II American fighter aircraft. Retro 51 immortalizes the airplane in pen form with the "Corsair" design Tornado rollerball pen. The metal Tornado pen body is acid-etched and printed with graphics to recreate the aesthetics of the fighter.
Find a point size that best suits your handwriting style. In 2019, Retro 51 upgraded their nib units to Jowo #6 size stainless steel and have a more comfortable, contoured section to hold. Choose between using international size ink cartridges or fill with any bottled fountain pen ink using the included converter.
