“Even with the proliferation of today's virtually instantaneous methods of communication, fine pens have lost none of their luster as writing implements and fashion accessories.”

In addition to being a beautiful flower and the theme of Retro 51 fine writing instruments, the cherry blossom has other significant meanings and uses within our nation’s history as well. In 1912, the city of Tokyo, Japan bestowed an incredible gift on our Nation’s Capital of 3,000 cherry blossom trees that have survived and bloomed for 100 years! Along with their beautiful decorative qualities, the trees were meant as a gesture of friendship and prosperity between the two nations.
The Special Edition Retro 51 pens commemorate the annual Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, D.C. beginning on the first day of spring and lasting through mid-April honoring the renewal and rebirth of life, and the significance of new beginnings. The blossoms may also be consumed in small quantities, such as salt pickled blossoms with hot water as a variety of tea sometimes served at weddings. The versatility shown by cherry blossoms is evident in the cherry blossom pens with their attractive looks and dependable performance.
The seventh collection of cherry blossom writing instruments offers an original design that captures the delicacy of the blossoms swirling around the Tidal Basin, the Washington Monument and the Jefferson Memorial. The Retro Tornado style pens have a solid steel barrel with multiple layers of enamel in blues, pinks and white accented with a chrome clip and trim. The limited production series includes a fountain pen with stainless steel and iridium nib, a capless, twist-top rollerball/ballpoint pen and a 1.15mm pencil with large eraser.
Join in the celebration with a writing instrument from the seventh collection of Cherry Blossom pens. Those interested in the history and fine craftsmanship of the cherry blossom pens, pencil and journal are reminded to act quickly as these limited production items will only be available for a short time. The cherry blossom pens are a wonderful keepsake of this special event in our Nation’s Capital and may be purchased at the Fahrney’s Pens retail store, website or catalog department.
