All of us have used a pen at some point in our lives. These pens have been associated with us since our school days. But we will talk about such a pen here. Which you can’t use but it manages to get your full attention.
The saying that the pen is mightier than the sword and Acharya Makunuri Srinivasa, a resident of Hyderabad, proved this to be true. On Monday, Guinness World Records shared a video of the record-setting world’s largest and best pen, created by Srinivasa and his team in 2011. The Instagram reel showed Srinivasa with his team carrying a prominent ballpoint pen. And this pen is not only designed for display but also serves its most basic function, which is to assist in writing.
World’s biggest pen as world’s best pens
An Instagram reel shared by Guinness World Records showed how a team of men grabbed a pen and moved it to draw a caricature on a large piece of white paper. Describing the world’s largest giant pen, Guinness World Records added the caption “The world’s largest pen is 5.5 meters or 18 feet in length”. This excellent pen weighs a little more than 37.23 kg. Guinness World Records commented, adding that the pen engraved with scenes from Indian mythology was created by Srinivasa. The pen’s brass outer shell weighs around nine kilograms.

When the pen was tested in Hyderabad on 24 April 2011, it was found that Srinivasa’s creation surpassed the previous record by 1.45 meters or 4 feet 9 inches.
Why Guinness World Records called this pen the best and largest pen in the world
A very large pen was made by Archarya Makunuri Srinivasa (India). And one of the reasons for its excellence, Acharya says, is that it was inspired by the pen his mother gave him as a young boy. Mr. Acharya added that whenever his mother gave him a pen to write with, he envisioned designing a unique pen. A special feature of this pen is that it is made of brass and nine types of dance poses and Indian musical instruments are engraved on it. One of the reasons why it is the best, along with scenes from Indian mythology, is that Archarya’s masterpiece measures 5.5 meters (18 ft 0.53 in) in length – about 38 times the size of an ordinary barrow – and weighs 37.23 kg. (82.08 lb 1.24 oz) is.
If you look at this pen, it looks like it will split into two pieces while writing, but when Archarya is asked to write with this pen, he very comfortably makes a shape on the white paper and while doing so, his face but there is a smile. This is another great feature of this pen.
At the End
In accordance with Guinness World Records guidelines, this super-sized fountain pen, like its smaller siblings, spreads ink over its tip during use through the rolling action of a small metal circle. This record achievement was an incredibly proud moment for inventor Archarya, and his entire village turned out to witness the pen’s groundbreaking demonstration.
