  1. Hello everyone! I'm brand new to the world of fountain pens, and have a couple beginner's questions regarding my new Retro 51 Tornado. It came with a medium nib, which writes nicely, but I'd like to purchase a nib that allows me to vary my line stroke and write more calligraphically and personally. Before I look into flexible or italic nibs, however, I was wondering if my pen can even take replacement nibs; the nib doesn't seem to come apart from the nib assembly/ feed, so even if I knew the correct size to buy I'm not sure if my pen could take it. Do I have to purchase an entire new nib assembly (in which case, where should I look to buy them?) or does the nib disconnect in a way I'm unaware of? Thank you all, Alec

    Inkwell and Brew - Estes Park, CO

    Accidentally found this nice store in Estes Park, CO. Coffee, Stationary, Ink and Pens. https://inkwellbrew.com/ The coffee was excellent, staff very friendly. They carried a nice selection of notebooks, journals, and assorted things, in FP friendly paper. They also had a selection of J Herbin inks and Retro pens. Have a room upstairs to sit and play board games, drink coffee, and I suppose write. I wanted to sit and write my journal there, but didn't have time. Nice, different shop.

    Glow In The Dark Ink?

    So the new Retro 51 glow-in-the-dark pen has got me thinking about glow-in-the-dark ink. I haven't seen any. We already have some invisible ink, but that's different. Glow-in-the-dark items that I own (novelty clothes, watch markings) are visible in daylight but glow when it's dark; quite different from invisible except under UV light. I thought if such an ink existed, it would make a fun Halloween gift. Does anyone know of one?
  4. Hi all, So we have some more Retro 51 Tornado Swish Limited Edition ballpoint pen left. In the past, we have sold out quickly these editions. So if you are interested we still have some left. The new Big Shot Tornado Popper is here just in time for the basketball season, which is intensifying in college and the NBA. Who will be the all-star to take their team to the championship? This Big Shot rollerball has an acid-etched texture with hand-applied red, white and blue lacquer complete with black gloss trim.
