The Doctor's Pen

British-made luxury fountain pen with classic style
Specially made for everyone in the medical profession - A deep Claret Red pen with a Rod of Asclepius clip and fittings made from silver, a metal that’s known to kill bacteria.  

Limited edition of 100

The doctor's pen with Asclepius clip

Designed by a Doctor

The Onoto Doctor’s Pen was originally suggested by a doctor who also happened to be a very keen Onoto fountain pen user. He gave us many design ideas which we have included in this beautiful pen.

Made from deep claret red acrylic and complemented by a broad sterling silver cap band, it’s professional, distinctive and elegant. Hold the Onoto Doctor’s Pen and you will feel the same perfect balance that comes with all Onoto Magna fountain pens.

The gold and silver-plated clip represents the Rod of Asclepius which is the symbol of medicine worldwide. The fittings are made from silver, a metal that’s known to help kill bacteria – see the article to the right.

Famous Heritage

Based on the style and shape of one of the most famous fountain pens ever made – the Onoto Magna of 1937 which is still acclaimed by many as the best fountain pen ever made – The Doctor’s Pen features a broad sterling silver cap band, an ideal place for a name or initials to be engraved.

The distinctive Onoto cypher is carved into the sterling silver cap button with a frosted background, making it instantly recognisable. A sterling silver barrel button with the edition number engraved into it finishes the overall luxury feel.

Onoto nibs – Probably the Best on the Market

Put ‘pen to paper’ and you’ll be amazed at the smoothness of the exclusive Onoto #7 nib. You can select either the gold-plated SS version (as standard) or the 18 carat gold version for that extra-luxury feel. Both are available in broad, fine or medium widths to suit your handwriting style.

Custom nibs also available

And if you prefer to use a special nib – an italic, stub or oblique, for example – you can have either our standard SS or gold nib ground to your exact specification by one of the UK’s leading nib-masters. Just complete your requirements in the shopping cart.

And for that extra touch…

Whether for yourself or as a gift, you can have the The Doctor's Pen engraved with a name or initialsaround the sterling silver cap band for that touch of exclusivity at a modest extra cost.

Lifetime Guarantee

Like all modern Onoto pens, The Doctor's Pen comes with a lifetime guarantee. If there’s ever a problem with your pen, just return it to us and we’ll repair it for you free of charge.*

The fascinating link between medicine and silver

The use of silver in medicine is as old as medicine itself. Hippocrates is known to have used it to treat ulcers and wounds, but how it works has always been a mystery.

Recently, however, a team from Boston University in Massachusetts, has shown how silver kills bacteria, and how it can help to deal with the modern scourge of antibiotic resistance.

So when we were asked to make The Doctor’s Pen we knew we had to include sterling silver as part of its design. Practical as well as elegant this pen is surely the one to write those prescriptions!
