25 years ago, an icon of the pen world was born. Retro 51 introduced the Tornado retractable rollerball pen in 1997 with three lacquer colors: red, blue, and green. At the time, the company had no idea how wildly successful this design would be for the brand.
This Tornado special release honors the first three tornado pen colors. "Origin" incorporates red, green, and blue horizontal stripes cascading down a cream barrel. To finish this collectible design, the top disc replicates the line pattern with the number "25" in the middle. This pen is a "must have" for fans from the beginning, a great introduction for newer fans, and a soon-to-be keepsake for everyone.
