A PAPIER PLUME EXCLUSIVE
This entirely copper pen made by Cleo Skribent is exclusive to Papier Plume. It is made with the highest grade of copper providing the most antimicrobial properties available to help stop the spread of bacteria from things like MRSA, E-Coli and Staphylococci. Great for healthcare professionals, teachers and people who come in contact with many others.
The best way to say anything at all about the benefits of having a copper pen is to let you do a little research. Here is a start! "The surfaces of copper and its alloys, such as brass and bronze, are antimicrobial. They have an inherent ability to kill a wide range of harmful microbes relatively rapidly – often within two hours or less – and with a high degree of efficacy. These antimicrobial properties have been demonstrated by an extensive body of research. The research also suggests that if touch surfaces are made with copper alloys, the reduced transmission of disease-causing organisms can reduce patient infections in hospital intensive care units (ICU) by as much as 58%."

It is normal for copper to change colors from light to dark hues of blue and purple depending on the environment and its use.
It weighs 1.1 oz and is 5.5" and comes standard with a Black Easy Flow 9000 Refill
