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.

Praise for your repair department

Over thirty years ago, a friend gave me a very worn and neglected Retro 1951 pen. I recently found it again and sent it in for repair. Your people are artisans. I can't believe how beautiful it looks and how well it writes. To an artist and writer this is rare treasure. Many thanks.

The gleam of warmth, ease of of flow
original thoughts and images
ever willing where I go.

Retro 51 Tornado Vintage Rollerball Pen - Raw Copper?

Very pretty pen. I don't know how it performs as we gave it as a gift. We had it engraved and it engraved well. We were confused by the website thinking Rustico would engrave it, however they do not. The recipient seemed very pleased with the gift.

Evan MacDonald (Wappingers Falls, US)
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.
