This unique pen has an all-copper barrel with a mirror-polished finish and copper-plated trim. The barrel and trim do not have a protective coating, so they will also age with the owner's use and become a one-of-a-kind heirloom piece after months to years of usage. It's topped with a turquoise top disc and comes in a Retro brand graphic tube. Pick up this rollerball and watch the patina grow with fleetness and grace.

Care Instructions

Chemicals will weaken the leather over time. Be patient. Its ruggedness will grow in character with you.

Don't be afraid of a scuff. Lick your finger. Rub it in. The oils from your skin shape the patina's look over time. So go ahead. Handle it!

Avoid leaving leather for extended periods of time in direct sunlight or extreme heat. We recommend Rustico's Custom Designed Leather Cleanerfor additional leather cleaning and conditioning.

Simply perfect.

I have always been fascinated and in love with raw copper bronze and brass. I have only used fountain pens for the past 10 years and needed a metal pen for work in a lumber yard. This pen not only writes perfect, but my dirty hands give it amazing colors and patina. There is no better work pen.

Lovely Pen

Very fun pen, that will change in appearance as I use it, so it will evolve. Cool.

Retro 51 Tornado Vintage Rollerball Pen

I ordered this pen because it was copper.... I love THAT. I don't like the gel ink as it is so "heavy" that you can see it through the other side of the paper, making it hard to use for example, in a Journal. Writing with it is ok, but the ink isn't smooth; sometimes it wants to thin out and skip. I'll be trying to find a ball point ink cartridge in the next few days.
