Retro 51 Tornado EXT Fountain Pen - Corsair
The legendary Vought F4U Corsair was one of the greatest American fighter aircrafts of all time. A carrier-based fighter-bomber, it was the premiere Navy and Marine fighter during the late World War II and the Korean War. The Corsair was the first American-made aircraft to reach 400 miles per hour in level flight. In addition to its huge propeller and distinctive bent-wing shape, the aircraft was also known for the peculiar sound it made at higher airspeed.
This navy blue metal Retro 51 Tornado fountain pen is acid-etched and printed to recreate the iconic WWII fighter plane. It features Retro 51's newly designed fountain pen grip and nib. It fills via standard international cartridge/converter and has a smooth-writing steel nib. It comes packaged in a tube that doubles as a pen stand, along with a converter and two black short standard international ink cartridges.
The Retro 51 EXT (extended) Tornado fountain pen is 2.5cm longer than the standard Retro 51 fountain pen, which enables it to hold two standard international ink cartridges or an ink converter (it comes with both). We also have a selection of bottled ink available here.
