In the second Q&A session we talked with George, aka “g” to some. Man of few words… “cool.” Man with lots of Retro pens. Twenty plus years later, here are his responses:
What was your first Retro pen you bought?
MRP-212, White Nickel Rollerball with rose gold accents.
How many do you own now?
???? Thats a Vickie question.
Here are just some (from left to right):
Yellow Submariner, Deauxville, Boulevard 88, Skymaster, Hula Pen, Postmaster (with Christmas theme), Copper Rallye, Flagmaster & Harley-Davidson Full Throttle (sample one-off).
Elvis Postmaster (one of two made)
One of the first 200 Series
Bunny Pen, not a Retro but it made a statement in its day, which led to the philosophy behind Retro 51. Life is too short…
Which one is your favorite?
Do you regret not buying a Retro product that is now gone/discontinued?
nope – kinda like Jay Leno says. We’ll make more styles
What is the next one you want to buy?
What has been your pen of choice lately? Why?
yellow submariner (pronounced sub-mar-i-ner)
Rollerball, fountain, ballpoint or pencil?
blue easy flow ball point of course
Anything else you want to add?
thanks for your support.
