Pure Malt SS2005 Ballpoint Pen

As the name “Pure Malt” suggests, the pen uses material from whiskey- making. Whiskey is often aged in barrels made of 100-year-old oak; those barrels can be in use for as much as 60 years. The Pure Malt SS2005 is made from the whiskey barrels.

Because they are made from the panels of the aged whiskey barrels, each ballpoint pen has a slightly different color and pattern. The color tends to resemble ebony. As you use the pen to write, it begins to shape to your hand. You won’t want any other pen from that time forward!
