Bradford Torelli


 

brad torelli working

Brad Torelli is the man behind Torelli Pen. Every Torelli Pen is a product of his hands, working with his large assortment of lathes, buffing wheels, and other tools.

Brad has been a Connecticut resident since his youth.  He became involved with pens almost 50 years ago. ''I was 3,'' he said, ''and my father bought a Sheaffer Snorkel pen. Each evening, I'd take it from his inside pocket and fill it with water in the bathroom. It was a great squirt gun.'' He smiles at the remembrance, his boyish face, full head of sandy hair, sparkling blue eyes and compact build belying his 53 years. ''I've played with, used and collected fountain pens ever since.''

Mr. Torelli makes unique ''Torellis'' and other pens, in classic styles and materials, and sells his creations through a handful of select dealers.

Mr. Torelli employs skills like goldsmithing to restore inlays, machining to produce parts, engineering to build complicated filling mechanisms and fine finishing to remove cracks from plastics.
