My “only one” pen would be without question my Retro51 Tornado. I’ve had this pen now going on eighteen years. The first vacation my girlfriend and I took (now wife) was to San Diego. They used to have a cute little papery and pen store in the gas lamp district, and this chrome beauty just stood out. It has been my go to almost exclusively ever since. I have more elaborate and expensive, but non are finer than this little demon of a pen. cheers!

Good to know! I'm looking for a gift pen for a friend and I've been eyeing the Retro51 tornado! I think you've just made up my mind!

Are they bp or rb? I have always been attracted to those knurled rings.

@StainlessOnly @MrSharkbait can confirm. Retro51s take Schmidt P8126, P8127, Easyflow 9000 refills, in fact Retro51-branded refills are made by Schmidt. The P8126 format is available as BP and capless RB. It get's better, the P8126 is about the same dimensions as Parker universal refills, just slightly wider. So almost any pen that takes P8126/7 refills will take Parker style refills. Case in point, I have used my Retro51 with OHTO needlepoints and Schneider Slider X755 refills. For an excellent reference on refills see: https://www.wellappointeddesk.com/2014/06/epic-refill-guide-rollerball-gel-and-ballpoints/ The fun to be had with refills is the main reason I still use rollerballs and ballpoints... occasionally.

Yes, that is a great reference, and where I found the tip to use Cross Selectip Gel for my MB, which in turn made me re-discover Cross.

Sad.
I sure do miss the former MASSDROP. Writing, cooking, baking, sewing/quilts . . . I can see that a whole chunk of we MD lovers were cast aside. I enjoyed it and shopped it a lot.
