Acme Hybrid Collection Hatch Brass Antimicrobial Rollerball Pen The new ACME "Hatch" Hybrid Pen takes advantage of the innate properties of brass to create an antimicrobial surface. Within a few hours of interacting with brass ions, bacteria and microorganisms perish, which makes brass an excellent material to create a writing instrument that is handled often. The antiseptic quality of the Hatch Pen lends itself perfectly to situations where hygiene is a priority. The Hatch pattern engraved on the brass is intended to be an abstraction of cell structure demonstrating organic change. Note that the pen is coated with a thin application of clear lacquer coating to give the impression of a highly polished pen. The lacquer slowly wears away over time, exposing the raw brass and its antiseptic benefits. The ACME "Hatch" Pen is designed by Karl Zahn - a freelance product and furniture designer whose work examines contemporary materials and historical technologies to create a hybrid model that are more applicable, aesthetically pleasing and sustainable in our current society.
