Retro 2020 Cherry Blossom Exclusive Fountain Pen
Fahrney’s 2020 Cherry Blossom
Limited Edition by Retro 51
We’re thrilled to present our exciting
new Cherry Blossom writing instruments for 2020, produced exclusively for Fahrney’s by Retro 51. Released each year to coincide with the blooming of the spring cherry blossoms in our home base of Washington, DC, the 14th collection features the cherry blossoms floating in the skies above the Iwo Jima Memorial in Arlington, Virginia, with the Capitol Dome and the Washington Monument in the background.
A fearless Blue Jay looks over the scene from his perch. Dedicated in 1954, the war memorial
is dedicated to all U.S. Marine Corps personnel who died in the defense of the United States since 1775. The memorial was inspired by the iconic 1945 photograph of six Marines raising a U.S. flag atop Mount Suribachi during the Battle of Iwo Jima in World War II. The solid metal barrel of each pen is finished in frosted blue metallic with frosted charcoal accents. A cherry blossom is etched on the top disc.
The limited production 2020 Cherry Blossom collection includes a Retro Tornado fountain pen with stainless steel nib, a twist-top rollerball/ball pen, and a 1.15mm pencil with eraser, all shipped in a custom Fahrney’s Cherry Blossom tube. The fountain pen is fitted with Retro’s German-made steel nib that offers improved ink flow and responsiveness with each stroke.
