We're dreaming of a Great White Christmas with this Retro 51 "Santa Jaws" Tornado fountain pen. This limited edition, Goulet-exclusive design was first inspired by Brian's Christmas sweater of the same theme. We then collaborated with Retro 51 and with the original sweater designer to bring you this magnificent pen. As an added bonus, we've also included a matching sticker!
This Retro 51 Tornado fountain pen has a print of a great white shark all decked out in the Christmas spirit with a sweater and hat. Snowflakes, sharks, and fish adorn the rest of the pen in a sweater pattern. On the finial is a snowflake. You can't help but smile when looking at this pen.
With an antique pewter trim, this fountain pen features Retro 51's newly designed fountain pen grip and nib. It fills via standard international cartridge/converter and has a smooth-writing JoWo #6 steel nib. It comes packaged in a themed tube that doubles as a pen stand, along with a converter and two black short standard international ink cartridges.
Each limited edition pen is individually numbered out of 300.
