Fountain Pen Day 2016


This coming Friday, November 4th, is National Fountain Pen Day. In honor of this special day for penthusiasts, we will be giving a Tornado Fountain Pen away every day this week. Here is how to enter the daily contest:

  1. Take a photo of any Retro51 pen (fountain, rollerball, ballpoint or pencil) you are currently using and hand write Fountain Pen Day 2016 next to it.
  2. Post this image either on our Facebook page, on Twitter (tagging us @Retro1951), on Instagram (also tagging us @Retro1951) or by commenting below.
  3.  One entry per person, per day (one day = from noon till 11:59 am the following day – central time). The photo must be different for each day/entry. You can enter once daily with up to five chances to win. You may only win once.

We will randomly select a winner everyday at noon (CST) and post the name on our social media sites.


The winner will get to choose between the  Black Acrylic, Marlin Acrylic or Black Cherry. Nibs available in Fine, Medium and Broad.

Good luck and thanks for entering!

    I would love to have a retro 51 fountain pen cause I was born in 1951 and love to write with a fountain pen…Black Cherry is the one…

    Already have pencils and pens, a fountain pen would balance out my collection!

    Happy Belated Fountain Pen Day! I was the Day 2 winner and just sent an email reply with my choice of prize (Black Cherry fountain w/Broad nib). All three models look classy, but the cherry material looks /outstanding/. Well done, Retro 51!

      The pen arrived and it’s gorgeous! The “Black Cherry” colour is wonderful (to my eyes, it’s what you’d get if you mixed red, purple and black together) and unique to this pen, in my experience so I am one happy Retro 51 fan 😀 Thanks so much for the prize!
