Retro 51 Tornado Smithsonian Rollerball Pen, Gene Davis Hot Beat
Retro 51 Smithsonian Series Tornado pen, Hot Beat. Gene Davis's striking 1964 painting, Hot Beat, is part of the Smithsonian American Art Museum's permanent collection. He was quoted saying, "it seemed to feel right, as we entered the sixties, to have color that leaped right off the wall...it's almost as if I wanted to shout, rather than to whisper." You'll definitely be writing boldly with this Tornado twist-top rollerball pen printed in matching stripes to replicate the painting. Custom designed gift tube features the same pattern.
It is fitted with a smooth flowing rollerball refill that is retracted with its patented knurl twist-top. Replace the rollerball with any readily available Parker-style ballpoint refill and your Tornado is now a ballpoint pen. You'll find both the Schmidt P8126 capless rollerball refill and Schmidt P900 ballpoint refill for this pen in our store under Refills. Gift packed in matching commemorative Retro 51 gift tube that doubles as a pen stand.
Length: 5" (127 mm); Width at center of barrel: 15/32" (12 mm); Weight: 1.0 oz. (29 g)
