In hallmarked Sterling Silver

This magnificent pen is a superb example of British craftsmanship at its finest. Designed and manufactured in the Heart of England, The Doctor’s Pen combines sterling silver and rich black acrylic to create a fountain pen that’s beautiful to look at and amazingly tactile in your hand.

The cap and barrel have been engraved using using a genuine engine-turning machine  that is almost 100 years old – but still in perfect working condition. It has produced a beautiful and traditional ‘basket-weave’ pattern that shimmers when it’s caught by light. Each pen is stamped by the Birmingham Assay office with full English hallmarks on the barrel to confirm the purity of the silver.

The top of the cap is engraved with ‘Doctor’s Pen – Made in England’ – a simple message that confirms its provenance and authenticity.

and featuring the Rod of Asclepius

The pen’s clip represents the Rod of Asclepius – a symbol which features a serpent entwined around a staff and takes its name from the god Asclepius, a deity associated with healing and medicinal arts in Greek mythology. The Rod of Asclepius has been associated with the medical profession for thousands of years and makes a fitting addition to the Doctor’s Pen.

The antibacterial properties of silver

The use of silver in medicine dates back thousands of years and scientists have long known that the metal is a potent antibacterial agent. Silver ions perform their deadly work  by penetrating bacterial membranes and then binding to essential cell components like DNA and preventing the bacteria from performing even their most basic functions. The metal is commonly used on wound dressings, and on coatings on door handles to cut down the transmission of germs. So Sterling Silver is the ideal material for any Doctor’s Pen – a type of self cleaning pen that prevents the spread of germs!
