Most commonly associated with Retro 51 pens is their Tornado. As soon as I hear there’s a new Retro 51 Tornado pen out, I’m excited to see what the design will be celebrating this time. With three new Retro 51 Tornados on the horizon, here’s the Retro 51 Tornado USPS Lunar Zodiac Capless Rollerball. Ring in the Lunar New Year with the latest licensed United States Postal Service (USPS) rollerball pen from Retro 51. The USPS issued the new Lunar New Year: Year of the Dragon stamp this year, the fifth in this series associated with the Chinese Zodiac.
First of all, among the themed limited edition Retro 51 Tornado pens, the USPS ones are based on the similar corresponding stamp. This series of beautiful Forever stamps are designed by Camille Chew with Antonio Alcalá and inspired the creation of this writing instrument. See them decorating this Retro 51 Tornado USPS Lunar Zodiac Capless Rollerball.
Importantly, the Tornado rollerball features all the animals associated with the Chinese zodiac. Therefore, each one is acid-etched in the barrel and plated in stonewashed brass. The gold represents good fortune. A red accent print not only frames each zodiac symbol, but it also stands for luck. In addition, the top ring is engraved with the USPS logo and each pen’s limited edition number. With only 871 pens produced, this is sure to quickly be a collector’s item.
Enjoy smooth twist-action retraction on this capless rollerball. Similarly, you can easily refill your Retro 51 Tornado with either a Monteverde Parker Style ballpoint or gel refill, a Schmidt EZ Flow refill, or a Schmidt Short Capless rollerball refill.
Finally, USPS packaging with this year’s Dragon Forever sticker placed on the outer tube completes this beautiful piece. Above all, ring in the New Year with good luck, prosperity and a fun gift to mark this festive occasion!
