The Doctor's Pen featuring the Rod of Asclepius
This is the NEW version of the Conway Stewart Doctor’s Pen engraved with different engine turning pattern called "Waves". The first Limited Edition Doctor's Pen sold out in early 2022, so this new model has been designed for those in the medical profession who keep asking us for another Doctor's Pen!
This version has all the same special features; the cap and barrel are made in Sterling Silver and have been engraved using a genuine engine-turning machine that is almost 100 years old - but still in perfect working condition.
The new 'Waves' pattern really does make this a majestic pen that sparkles as the pen is turned in 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 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. It has been associated with the medical profession for thousands of years.
On the end of the cap is an engraved title "The Doctor’s Pen – Made in England" that confirms its British origins.
The antibacterial properties of Silver
Scientists have long known that the silver is a potent antibacterial agent. Silver ions perform work by penetrating bacterial membranes and then binding to essential cell components, thus preventing the spread of bacteria. Silver is commonly used in bandages for wounds and on coatings on door handles to cut down the transmission of germs. So when designing the Doctor's Pen it made sense to make it from Sterling Silver which is 92.5% silver.
Writing with a Doctor’s Pen
Although doctors are generally not renowned for their handwriting, we are confident every handwriting style will be improved with this pen! The 18ct gold nib creates a smooth flow of ink and is a real pleasure to use. It is perfectly balanced in the hand and designed to give you many hours of writing pleasure.
Available as a fountain pen or rollerball (or both!)
The Doctor's Pen is available as a Fountain Pen with a choice of Extra Fine, Fine, Medium or Broad 2-tone 18ct gold CS nibs, or a Rollerball with a choice of blue or black ink. A rollerball 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?
