This is what Onoto had to say about it:
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:
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!
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.
