Featuring the Accountants Arithmetic Tools in an iconic symbol

The Accountant’s Pen has been designed and handcrafted in England following a request by some of our clients in the Accountancy world. They had seen we produce a Lawyer’s Pen, and a Doctor’s Pen so wanted their own profession’s pen. So we listen, came up with some designs, and showed them our ideas – one design  depicted the arithmetic tools  engraved on top of the cap, that also looked like a face. Their comments on the photographs of the prototype we sent them were as follows:

What a fantastic design!! I see a perfect depiction of an accountant’s face: one eye open as we are always watching and paying attention, one eye closed because of the long hours in our profession, and a kiss for the lips because we all love our profession.”

These comments persuaded us to add this Accountant’s Pen to our Professions range. We hope you like it too.

Hallmarked Sterling Silver and a jewel in the clip

The pen is made from sterling silver, and is stamped with English hallmarks as a sign of its quality. A black onyx gemstone is embedded near the top of the clip as it is believed to promote wisdom, intuitiveness and concentration – great qualities for any accountant.

Bespoke the pen with your initials

We can engrave initials, names or dates on the cap band to make it personalised to you. If you want a different jewel in the clip, or a 23ct gold plated version, or a solid 18ct gold version, contact us and we can quote you.

Limited edition

The Accountant’s Pen is being issued in a worldwide limited edition of just 100. Each one is engraved with an edition number on the end of the barrel and will be accompanied by a signed Certificate of Authenticity confirming its edition number.

Writing with an Accountant’s Pen

Although accountants generally use computers for much of their work, a good quality fountain pen is still mandatory for certain special tasks. We have introduced Extra Fine nibs especially for figure work, and the facility to convert your fountain pen into a rollerball with a special conversion kit.  The 18ct gold Flag 2-tone nib creates a smooth flow of ink and is a real pleasure to use.  Read some of the reviews on our review page.

Available as a fountain pen or rollerball (or both!)

The Accountant’s Pen is available as a Fountain Pen with a choice of Extra Fine, Fine, Medium or Broad 2-tone 18ct gold Flag nibs, a Rollerball with a choice of blue or black ink, Fine or medium refills.. A rollerball which is like a biro/ballpoint but has the free-flowing ink qualities of a fountain pen. Beautiful to write with, yet has the convenience of a ball-point. Or why not order a distinctive matching pair – a fountain pen and a rollerball?

Purchase a conversion kit to turn your Accounatnt’s Pen into a Rollerball – and vice versa – quickly and easily.

Custom Nib

You may customise any nib to your own specification at an extra cost of £40.00 plus VAT, if appropriate. For example, if you prefer to write with a Stub, Italic or Oblique nib, our nib wright, one of the UK’s most experienced nib mechanics, will undertake the work to your exact specification. Just include details of your precise requirements in the box below and the cost will be added automatically.

Delivery

Because of the bespoke nature of our pens – nib configurations, fitting options etc, we rarely have pens available ‘off the shelf’. As soon as we receive your order we will email you with a confirmation of your order and provide you with an estimate of the time required to assemble, configure and thoroughly test your pen. This is usually between 10 and 14 days, although in busy periods it could be up to 28 days.

Once your pen has passed quality control it will be carefully secured in its presentation box before being packed for despatch.

All our pens are despatched using Royal Mail and as soon as we have handed it over to Royal Mail, we will email you with a despatch confirmation. This email also provides you with a tracking number which will enable you to track your parcel.

UK Deliveries

For delivery to UK addresses we use the Special Delivery service which means your pen will be delivered within 24 hours, usually before 1pm, on the day following despatch. We advise you by email when your pen has been handed over to Royal Mail and provide tracking information so you can trace the whereabouts of your pen on the Royal Mail tracking website: https://www.royalmail.com/track-your-item . You will need to sign for your parcel on receipt.

International Deliveries

For delivery to overseas addresses we use Royal Mail’s International Signed For service which means you will need to sign for the parcel to confirm receipt. We advise you by email when your pen has been handed over to Royal Mail and provide tracking information so you can trace the whereabouts of your pen on the Royal Mail tracking website: https://www.royalmail.com/track-your-item. Once the parcel arrives in your country, your local postal service takes over responsibility for delivery, although you can still use Royal Mail’s ‘Track and Trace’ system. In some countries, you can use the Royal Mail tracking number we provide on your local postal service website. For example you can use Royal Mail Tracking numbers on the USPS website to track your parcel in the USA. In other countries you will need to check with your local postal service to see if they can track international parcels in this way.

If you have any doubts or reservations about the security of your national parcel delivery service, you can always ask for your pen to be delivered by one of the internationally recognised courier companies (Fedex, UPS etc). Just make a note when you order and we will be in touch regarding any additional charges for international courier delivery.

Ink filling mechanism

Each Accountant’s Pen has a dual filling system. It is fitted with a converter (reservoir) which allows you to draw ink from a bottle or alternatively, you may remove the converter and use standard European ink cartridges. We will include 2 cartridges with your pen so you can start to use it immediately. If you prefer to use bottled ink, we recommend our own range of high quality ink, made in England and available in a range of colours. You will find details of colours available here: http://www.bespokebritishpens.co.uk/product/fountain-pen-ink/

The Accountant’s Rollerball Pen uses a standard rollerball refill that is available from Bespoke British Pens here: https://www.bespokebritishpens.co.uk/product/rollerball-refills/  You can select from either blue or black refills in medium, fine or extra-fine widths.

There is also a Conversion Set available to convert your fountain pen into a rollerball. This is very simple to use so you can have one Accountant’s Pen that can be a fountain pen or  a rollerball – see https://www.bespokebritishpens.co.uk/product/rollerball-conversion-kit/
