Pens have gone through a major evolution ever since the very first feather quill was used to write on parchments. Nowadays, you can find different kinds of pens from logo pens to designer pens and it all started with one humble beginning. As early as 4000 B. C, people of ancient civilizations have been using crude pens consisting of hollow straws or reeds supporting a short column of liquid. Around the 500 B. C, pens were made from wing feathers of geese and swans where the shaft of the feathers were hardened and the writing tip was shaped into a pointy end and slit to make writing easy. These feather pens were known as quill pens and were widely used by people until the steel-nib pens were developed in the 1800s. Inventors perfected these pens by the late 1800s to develop the first version of the fountain pen.
The fountain pen was the most major improvement in the pen and writing instrument history because it features an ink reservoir and a capillary feed. Pens before this could only hold a small amount of ink at a time and had to be repeatedly refilled or dipped with ink. Pens have gone through major revolutions and nowadays, it is just not seen as a writing instrument.
