The History of Pen
The pen is one of the most powerful things in the world. The word of the pen comes from the Latin word Pena.
In the early days of creation, people did not know how to use pens, they used to wave their hands and express their facial expressions to express their thoughts.
About 35,000 years ago, ancient people in the Namibian region of Africa used sharp stones to write or draw.
Gradually people began to improve. Before 4000 AD, the people of Egypt made paper from the leaves of the papyrus tree and began to write with the leaves and soil of different trees, but they noticed that it was not long-lasting.
Then they made a kind of ink and started writing with a fountain pen made of Bamboo. Which we know as Doyat.
Many years later, in 1827, Pettis Weiner, a Romanian citizen, was the first to discover the fountain pen.
But the results of his discovery failed. And later in 1884, Lewis Waterman invented the fountain pen.
He was a life insurance worker by profession. One day he was doing an important job in his office with a fountain pen. Suddenly the pen broke and all the ink fell on the paper and the job was ruined. Due to which he lost his job.
For this reason, he made high-quality fountain pens but it was too late to dry the ink of these pens.
Exactly 50 years later, a man named Laszlo Biro, a resident of Hungary, was a journalist by profession. He noticed that the ink used in newspapers dried up quickly and he was the first to invent a ballpoint pen.
At that time the price of that pen was 12$ and over time, it was further improved and that’s when the journey of this pen began!
How Does Ball pen work
The tip of the ballpoint pen takes a small sphere made of 0.7 to 1.2 mm brass steel tungsten or carbide which helps to apply the ink paper inside the pen.
And the ink used in ball pens dries thicker and faster which makes the ink of ball pens last longer.
