Retro 51 writing instruments are not overly pricey, but they aren't the cheap disposable pens you chew on the end of either. For one, these pens are metal. For two, they cost between $36-$45 in retail shops.
Don't be detoured by the price tag though because these pens are worth it. They're well-made and feel good in hand.
Refills are readily available and are competitively priced with other brand's refills.
It would be easier if customers could buy these pens on the Retro 51 website, but alas, the website only makes it easy to find online and local dealers, which there are plenty of.
All in all, if you value writing instruments and don't mind spending a little extra for something that's going to last, look good, and feel great to write with, try the Retro 51 Tornado Series. It's not wind in your hands, but if you're really into pens, this little beauty might just blow your socks off.
