Retro 51 Vintage Metalsmith Tornado Pen, Nikola Tesla
Futurist, inventor, electrical and mechanical engineer, Nikola Tesla was a genius well ahead of his time. His inventions are still being used to this day and his theories were so advanced that they continue to be studied, experimented on and even power the modern world. This Tornado's design was inspired by Tesla's spiral coil used in his wireless power experiments. Concentric circles are acid-etched into the barrel then plated in copper and finished with platinum appointments giving it a radiant and magnetic aesthetic. Each rollerball is loaded into a commemorative packaging tube that doubles as a pen stand when not in use. Pick up this new Tornado and rub shoulders with genius.
The pen 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 Retro 51 capless rollerball refill and Schmidt P900 ballpoint refill for this pen in our store under Refills. Gift boxed (Retro 51 gift tube that also doubles as a pen stand).
