Pre-Owned Pens: 1565: Retro 51: Cioppino Tornado
Real abalone shells are lacquered into place for one of Retro 51's most eye-catching fountain pens. Our Retro 51 Cioppino Tornado is new old stock with a sticker still attached to the cap. It comes complete with its box and papers. Although it looks as if the nib has not been dipped, the pen is missing its original converter and cartridges. We're not sure it ever had a converter. It might only take the short international cartridges.

Pre-Owned Pens: 1564: Retro 51: Double Eight
New Old Stock! A Retro 51 Double Eight is an extremely handsome fountain pen. Warm, late-summer colors radiate in layers off its octagonal cap and barrel. There are hardly any traces of wear. The converter is free of ink, and the nib and feed look as if they have never been dipped. Click the headline for a good look at the steel nib. It is marked "F" in a cursive script, presumably to indicate a fine-point nib. It looks more like a medium. We didn't dip it, but it feels smooth dry on paper. Complete with box! A true collector's item for Retro 51 fans. 14cm capped.

Pre-Owned Pens: 1563: Retro 51: Retro 1951
Here's a Retro 1951 fountain pen that appears to be new old stock. The medium steel nib might have been dipped, but the original ink cartridges are still in their tube and the converter seems to be free of any ink staining. There are almost no traces of wear on the pen that comes in its original box. We think the clip and trim might have silver plating, as they had tarnished a bit before we polished them. This tortoise shell design is lovely. The pen comes with its original box...and seemingly no papers. Much larger than the more recent Retro 51 Tornado pens. 14.1cm capped.

Pre-Owned Pens: 1526: Retro 51: Tornado
Retro 51 has taken the world by storm with its Tornado line of pens! These inexpensive, good quality pens are handsome and easy to use. They are a cartridge-only filler that uses standard international cartridges, which can be found most any place. Ours is the acrylic black Retro 51 Tornado. It has some light wear from use and the pocket clip is a little sprung, only about 1/8th of an inch off the cap. Click the headline font for a better look at the steel nib that writes smooth medium line with a hint of feedback. Great for daily use or introducing kids to fountain pens. 12.8cm capped.
