A typical ballpoint writing instrument containing some ink. Judging by the indistinct scratched-off logo, it is obviously a promotional item. — In-game description

The Pen is a type of equipment in DayZ Standalone. This item allows you to use Paper to write notes that can be read by other players (initiated by combining the pen and paper in your inventory screen).

Pens come in four different colors, and though they look identical from the outside, each one has the corresponding color of ink resulting in colored text when the player writes a note.
