Retro 51 Copper Tornado

The Retro 51 Copper Tornado rollerball pen writes very thickly. The tip does not appear to be very thick, but the more you tilt the pen as you write the thicker the line that comes out. This pen comes in an upright cylindrical box that says “Yeehaw, Retro 1951. Life is too short to carry an ugly pen!” When you open the box the pen is revealed. You twist the button on the back to reveal the tip. There is no grip where one should be, but there is a clip and the copper is beautiful. The price ranges from $25 to $75. There are two downsides to this pen. Personally, having small handwriting, this pen is not the best. Since the line that it creates is fairly thick because of the liquid ink, it is perfect for people with larger handwriting. Also, if you have sweaty hands, this pen is incredibly slippery on the grip portion. Overall, I give this pen 3.5 stars because of the slippery grip and the thick line. If you don’t have sweaty hands and you write larger, though, this a a great pen for you.
