The word Pen comes from the Latin word Penna meaning a contour feather of a bird. In the olden days, Quill Pens were made from the flight feathers of large birds, mostly goose, for writing with ink before the metal dip pens.
However, early fountain pen models were plagued by ink spills and other failures that left them impractical and hard to sell. Lewis Waterman, a New York Insurance broker, invented the capillary feed in fountain pens - now universally used - that allows even flow of ink. Fountain pens provide effortless and relaxed writing. They are refillable, but do not write well in rough surface, they are expensive, delicate and require regular maintenance.
Ball Point Pen was invented by Bara Laszla Jazsef, who was born in Budapest, Hungary in 1899, in a Jewish family. He first presented his invention at the Budapest International Fair in 1931. Ball Point Pens are successor to Fountain Pensthey are cheap, easy to use, can work through frictions.
However, a ballpoint pen is only as good as its refill - an expensive one writes no better than a cheap one. A Roller Ball Pen dispenses gel ink or water-based liquid through a ball tip similar to that of a ballpoint pen. Rollerball Pen was first designed by John J.
