Where To Buy Retro 51 Lincoln In Uk?


Recommended Posts

I really love the Retro 51 Tornado Lincoln fountain pen, I have only seen it being sold from the US. Does anyone know of a UK supplier, I don't feel like paying loads for shipping.

I don't know of any re-sellers, but I'm going to have another go at selling my retro 51 fountain pen on that famous auction website.


It's the cherry red version and I love the design, but I've only used it a couple of times as it doesn't suit my grip. It sat in a draw for four months pre-inked and when I went to test it all that time later it worked without having to prime it or get the nib wet. just pen to paper and it started straight off.


I had mine up for sale for a month and, unlike all other pens I've sold, this one even at half the price, free shipping (uk) and looking practically brand new couldn't find a home.


It's not a bad pen for the retail price, smooth, the cherry red shines and the design is really cool (imo), bit of parker 75 in there and the nib is fairly good. No tweaking needed, doesn't leak. But the shipping does make it a bit overpriced and they sell on Amazon.


If you're interested pm me


I'll be re-listing it on that famous auction site with free p&p. It's interesting how I like the design and yet I find myself reaching for other pens when I need one to write with. That's just personal taste right and I'm very picky with the pens I use.

The Lincoln is sold out at Mann Inc. Bummer. You’d like the pen. Maybe a road trip to France? You could always just drop by the Retro 51 site and search for a dealer.










I ride a recumbent, I play go, I use Macintosh so of course I use a fountain pen.

      @Texas42 Thank you. I myself have recently had the experience of cleaning out a Wing Sung 699, in which the iron-gall ink has been sitting for six months. No damage to the metal piston rod (whereas, in a Wing Sung 3013 vacuum-filler, it would have been corroded, turned green, and contaminated the ink in mere weeks), but there was a ring of colour at the far end of the barrel that wouldn't budge, and I found it impossible to unscrew the filling mechanism to clean the interior wall of the ink rese

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.
