Retro 51 Limited Edition ESCAPE Tornado Popper Fountain Pen’s design was inspired by the NASA ACES (Advanced Crew Escape Suit), which is also known as the pumpkin suit because of its orange colour.
The pen is lacquered in International Orange and printed with the iconic NASA "Meatball" logo as well as Space Shuttle patches. The Retro 51 ESCAPE is trimmed with matte black accents, clip, and knurled twist-top. An astronaut helmet crowns the top disc.
Inspired by mankind’s continuous push “off-world”, the Retro 51 Tornado Escape Fountain Pen brings a taste of space exploration to the masses. Finished with a printed design of insignia patches and space suit detailing across a base of ‘International Orange’ lacquer, this unique pen has been designed to look like NASA’s Advanced Crew Escape Suit (ACES) often referred to as the pumpkin suit.
Featuring a screw close cap and gently tapered grip section, coupled with a broad profile and pleasing weight makes using the Retro 51 Tornado fountain pen a real joy. Completed with matt black trim and an astronaut helmet design set in the final, the Escape is a striking pen ideal for everyday astroNOTs like you and me. As Retro 51 says “Life is too short to carry an ugly pen!”
Fitted with the JoWo #6 Stainless Steel Nib.
