Since 1968, the Skilcraft Ballpoint Pen has been the official pen of the U.S. government. As the story goes: after receiving a shipment of 13 million faulty ballpoint pens, the GSA (Government Services Administration) wrote a 16 page federal specifications document detailing the need for a retractable, refillable replacement. Ever since, versions of this very pen have filled the supply closets in all branches of the government.
Skilcraft is an office products brand that supplies the U.S. government and employs members of the blind community to manufacture hundreds of products at facilities in Missouri, Wisconsin and North Carolina.
This particular Skilcraft ballpoint is made of recycled plastic!
