Who invented the fountain pen
There was an era when poets and literature experts used tips of the feather immersed in ink, quills to pen down their creation that we see today. So we can't neglect the significance of the pen in the evolution of the literature. Although, with time, the people tried to find some comfortable and convenient methods to write, which resulted in the remodeling of the pens, swapping the trend, and make writing trouble-free.
In the course of an educational era, the idea of creating a pen named the "fountain pen" took birth, a tool that contains ink reserved inside it and will flow itself out from the nib made from metal.
The real inventor
Petrache Poenaru, a Romanian educator, is known as the father of this incredible innovation. In 1826, when he was a student of geodesic and observing at the Ecole Polytechnic in Paris, he designed a pen in which a feather of the swan was used as the repository for the ink.
On May 25, 1827, Petrache Poenaru's invention was patented by the French ministry of the interior, and he considered his discovery as the original one. The ministry appreciated his creation as a movable pen that reloads itself with the ink. However, there was a dispute regarding the real discoverer of the fountain pen, and many inventors claimed that.
History of the Fountain Pen
If we talk about the history of fountain pen, it was year 973, when the pen with the ink storage was marked in the first place. Ma'?d al- Mu'izz, the caliph of the Maghreb, Northwest Africa, wants an easier tool in writing due to the conventional feathers and always leaves his hands soiled through the stains created by the toner. To solve his problem, he was provided with a pen that contains ink inside its body. Although people were unaware of the physics of its working and mechanisms back then, they believed that it would not spill even if it will be reversed or unturned.
The modern scenario of fountain pens
In recent times, because of the continuous evolution of the world, and the discoveries that make everyone satisfied and trouble-free, the fountain pen utility is brought down as an output of the remarkable emergence of the ballpoint pen in the market.
