ACME Studio "Hatch" Hybrid Antimicrobial Roller Ball Pen by Karl Zahn 

 The Original Antimicrobial Pen, "Hatch," was designed to take advantage of the innate properties of brass and its remarkable ability to self-sterilize. Any bacteria or microorganism dies within a few hours of contact with the brass ions. While this effect is not new, and the concept is centuries old, we don't currently utilize this material's enormous potential. This antiseptic quality lends itself perfectly to situations where hygiene is a priority, including the medical profession. "Hatch" was designed by Brooklyn-based designer Karl Zahn. 

 PLEASE NOTE: Although this pen is intended to fully exploit the antimicrobial properties of raw brass, it comes with a thin coating of clear lacquer. This coating is applied to give the consumer a new and polished pen. However, this coating will slowly wear away over time, exposing the raw brass and its properties. The clear coating can also be removed quickly using a cloth with a solvent like lacquer thinner, but DO NOT soak the pen in any solvent. The antimicrobial properties of this pen are not transferable to any other object or body part.
