Conway Stewart "medical Sciences" Limited Edition Fountain Pen, Choices Of Nibs:
You are looking at a brand new in box, Conway Stewart "Medical Sciences" Limited Edition Fountain Pen. I am happy to collaborate with Conway Stewart again to introduce this brand new Limited Edition pen honoring men and women in the field of medical sciences. As some of you know in 2006, I collaborated with Conway Stewart and came out with the Doctor's Limited Edition Pen which was quickly sold out.Design of this pen:
First, I wanted the pen to be used, and not sitting in a case collecting dust. The pen must fit most of the pockets, yet comfortable to hold. For this pen, instead of black resin, we decided to go with black chased ebonite and the pen is adorned with 18kt gold clip and cap band. On the band, there is the Latin quote by the Greek physician, Hippocrates, "Ars longa, vita brevis". This is the quote that Hippocrates wrote in the opening line in one of his book. The full quote is as follow: "Ars longa, vita brevis, occasio praeceps, experimentum periculosum, iudicium difficile." That would lead us to interpret the meaning of "Ars longa, vita brevis" as 'it takes a long time to acquire and perfect one's expertise (of medicine) and one has but a short time in which to do it'. Here we are reminded that we must continue to acquire and perfect our craft in our chosen field of medicine.This handsome pen will come with a large presentation case that's reserved for their Churchill line, and each case has a brass plate with engraving of Staff of Asclepius and with words "Medical Sciences" under the staff. The pen will come with warranty booklet, polishing cloth and a bottle of ink. It is a very impressive package. The pen measures 5.25" closed, 5" from the tip of nib to end of barrel. It is 6.5" with cap posted. Only 50 pens were made and following choices of numbers are available: 45, 48. Nib choices are: F, Italic Fine. Unlike other limited edition pens, this pen is reasonably priced. This is a cartridge/converter filler.Shipping within US is flat rate of $15 by USPS Priority Mail. Shipping internationally is flat rate of $50 by US Postal Global Express
