This custom pen represents an important and exciting milestone for the Writing community as the first product to be created from the direct input of Massdrop members. Presented with 5 distinct designs, members cast over 1300 votes very quickly, and this design for Acid-Etched Herringbone with Chrome Trim emerged as the clear favorite. We are pleased to partner with Retro 1951 to make this numbered, limited edition available exclusively for Massdrop members.
Note: At check-out, you can select a nib size from Fine (40), Medium (35), and Broad (5). This drop is limited to 80 units.
While the basic versions of the Retro 1951 Tornado Fountain pen are already known for their good looks, Massdrop members were given the chance to take it a step further. Made by Retro 1951, a Texas-based pen company inspired by retro design and known for quality manufacturing, the Tornado Fountain Pen body features an all-metal construction and a German-made stainless steel Schmidt nib decorated with light engraving. This ‘EXT’ model pen offers an extended design that is capable of holding either two international standard ink cartridges or a converter, all of which are included.
All orders will be shipped by Massdrop.
Estimated ship date is Sep 29, 2015 PT.
After the drop ends, payment will be collected. To deliver the best value to the group the request will then be submitted to the vendor up front, making all sales final. Be sure to check the discussion page for updates.
