Kaweco Retro Rollerball Pen
We have added another rollerball pen (5 different color choices) to our offerings of the esteemed Kaweco line. Kaweco pens epitomize two essential features of a fine writing instrument: classic good looks and a beautifully smooth “write” (ink flows effortlessly).
The Retro is made of high-quality resin reminiscent of Bakelite, in sophisticated colors that remind us of hues one would see in old movies, or on vintage automobiles, or on the walls of historic houses—colors that are just a little bit “off” of what one would expect, but in the best way. The green has a bit of gray, the royal blue is a touch muted, the berry a nuanced red, the orange not at all harsh, the brown rather subdued.
The point is stainless steel, and the stylish embellishments are a discreet gold “button” on the end of the cap, a gold-colored metal clip, and a handsome gold band. The body is comfortable to hold and has a screw-on cap. Made in Germany.
Available colors: Green/Ivory, Blue/Ivory, Berry/Ivory, Orange/Ivory, Brown/Ivory.
Dimensions: 0.6” (diameter) x Length: 5” cap closed; 6.25" with cap posted on body. Weighs 1 oz.
The Retro is packaged in a gold tin box with a beautiful classic design.
The pen comes with a black 0.7mm cartridge. Additional rollerball refills are also available for purchase.
Kaweco is a renowned maker of writing instruments, originally founded in Germany in 1889. The company’s first product was a wood dip pen.
The Retro style is also available as a fountain pen.Product SKU:
