I've been searching far...
December 29, 2014
I've been searching far and wide for a green pen when I came across this one on
Jetpens. Unfortunately it was out of stock. I set up an email notifications to
tell me when it was back in stock. About 10 days later I got the email motifs
and ordered it immediately. Terrific service by Jetpens.
The green color is very vibrant and consistent over the entire pen. It's
beautiful to simply hold and look it. My two other Retro 51 pens are chrome and
did not have a colored top. Even though the photo showed it, I missed that and
was pleasantly surprised that this green pen has a green top of the cap. While
I bought a Schmid green refill with this pen, keep in mind that this pen will
take any Parker style refill which means a Fisher Space pen refill will also
fit. Like many roller ball and gel pen inks, there is significant bleed through
on thin paper so this
The pen, like other Retro 51 pens, is very balanced and fits my hand like a
larger pen - doesn't feel like a small pen. Pick your
favorite color and buy yourself one - you won't regret it.
