Inspired by the vintage aesthetic of mid-century Americana, the Retro 51 Tornado Douglass pen set is a must-have for any stationery collection.  The set includes a fountain pen, rollerball pen, and pencil presented in a custom magnetic closure gift box. The broad profile and pleasing weight make using the Tornado a real joy. Bearing an image of Frederick Douglass in the end cap, this design was created to remember the life of the famous abolitionist and speaker. With a distressed pewter finish and an engraved wave pattern, these pens are both aesthetically pleasing and unique. As Retro 51 says “Life is too short to carry an ugly pen!”
