The most unique pen in the world is made from a material found at the bottom of oceans





I’ve been doing this job for half a decade now… I don’t really ever struggle when it comes to describing a product, but when I look at SHIRO Pen, I really can’t think beyond the word ‘unique’. Some people have instruments that write in space, some people have fountain pens that were passed on to them by their ancestors, some have ornate pens studded with gemstones. The SHIRO Drawing Pen is uniquely appealing for other reasons altogether. This sculptural beauty comes made from diatomaceous soil, a special mineral powder created in the ocean. Cast into its intricate textured body, this diatomaceous soil is what makes the SHIRO so uniquely outstanding.

Touch the SHIRO and it’s like nothing you’ve ever drawn or written with before. The diatomite-material, along with the SHIRO’s wavy texture are a complete tactile experience. The pen derives its name from the Japanese word for waves too, a reference not only to the unique wavy pattern on the pen’s body, but also the origin of the Diatomite material. Almost like holding an incredibly lightweight piece of stone, the SHIRO Drawing Pen feels equal parts light yet solid.

The diatomite’s inherently porous nature also makes drawing/writing more comfortable, as the pen’s body absorbs moisture or perspiration on your hands, giving you an easy penning experience. Fitted with a graphite lead on the inside, the SHIRO is perfect for writing, sketching, and drawing plans. Whether it’s as small as a doodle in a notebook or a long as a detailed design sketch, SHIRO pulls you in with its incredible textured design, and keeps you in with its comfortable writing experience.

The SHIRO is a combination of being a visual objet d’art and being a pen with a carefully considered choice of materials. It’s honestly perhaps the first pen to ever be made with diatomite, or it definitely is the first and only one I’ve seen (and I’ve looked online, believe me). The Diatomite, aside from providing the SHIRO with its tactile comfort, also serves a second, more unusual purpose.

Its water-absorbent property allows the SHIRO drawing pen to even work as a fragrance diffuser, either when it’s resting in a pen-stand or in your pocket. Just spray the SHIRO with a spritz of your favorite perfume and it instantly absorbs the atomized liquid particles and begins diffusing fragrance into the air. Giving it abilities that most pens would seldom dream to possess, the Diatomite body of the SHIRO works almost like a room or personal freshener.

The SHIRO comes along with its own stand, which also includes a tiny fragrance diffuser-bottle with it. The drawing pen itself comes in two variants, a clicking mechanical variant with a 0.5mm graphite lead and a pocket clip, and another variant with a broader body and space on the inside for a 2mm graphite lead. The Diatomite body of the drawing pen is formed using a vacuum-filling process (to prevent any air-bubbles from ruining the design), while the pen’s brass inner structure is entirely lathe-machined.

Both the Diatomite and brass are designed to be easily recycled, while the SHIRO’s packaging itself comes made from 100% recycled paper printed with natural soy-based ink… a testament to the fact that there’s nothing really run-of-the-mill with SHIRO. Every single aspect about it, whether it’s the construction, the physical properties, or even the packaging, is unique and appealing in a way that’s truly multi-sensory. The SHIRO is probably the first (and only) drawing pen/pencil you can appreciate with your eyes, fingers, and even your nose!
