In ancient times, feather pens made from bird feathers were all the rage and were the main instrument of writing for many centuries. When the Industrial Revolution caught my eye, a progressively more refined technology created improved writing tools, such as the pen. Primary contemporary categories of pens can be classified according to the type of writing or point. Let’s look at the most popular writing paraphernalia available on the market today, as well as the writing instruments used in the past.
• Pen: usually finished with tungsten carbide, steel or brass. A pen usually measures 0.7 to 1.2 millimeters and works by finding thick oil-based ink by navigating a hard minute. Pens are very popular because the ink dries instantly on contact with the paper, and they are inexpensive and have a long shelf life. This type of pen is used in schools, colleges, universities and offices.
• Pen: In the beginning, the pen was made to combine the comfort of a pen with the result of the silky “wet ink” associated with the pen. The ink of the pen is usually water-based, which is then distributed through a ball-like tip of a pen. Because the ink is less thick and has a higher absorbency quality, this pen slides smoothly onto paper or other writing materials.
• Fountain pen: the choice of the distinguished and elite element of the writing instrument, it also features a water-based ink liquid, which is then transported to the fist. From then on, the ink floods a basin or tank, thanks to the ingenuity of combined gravity and capillary action. It is interesting to note that fountain pens have no moving components. Instead, the ink diffuses through a thinner aperture into the intended writing area. There are 2 types of fountain pens: refillable or disposable. The latter is known as an ink cartridge. Refillable pens contain devices such as pistons to get ink from a container through the tip, or in some cases, the ink can be refilled using an eye cap.
• Felt pen: This instrument, also widely called marker, has a permeable tip made of a rubber substance. Felt pens come in a variety of sizes and the smallest is used primarily for writing on paper. The larger version is the one we normally use to mark cardboards, whiteboards, and whiteboards. Medium-sized markers are very popular with the much younger set, used for artistic purposes.
There are three types of pens used in working time and not universally used, although in some parts of the world they can be used sparingly.
• Pen-dip: also known as the pen, it is very similar to the pen-pen and has a metal drill bit with the glasses. A dip-pen is usually placed on a lever or receptacle made of wood. The downside of the pen is that it often needs to be pasted into an ink container for repeated use. Today, the pen is used primarily for artistic and design purposes, such as comics and calligraphy.
• Pen: This pen has almost taken the world of writing away, except for the minor use for schoolchildren in remote parts of Pakistan, which is said to develop writing skills. The reed feathers are made of bamboo and reed, with an opening in a conical tip.
• Ballpoint pen: made with bird feathers such as geese and eagles. A pen was one of the first writing instruments used, after the pen. The mechanism consisted of a shaft that functioned as an ink basin, and the ink is distributed directly to the tip through a passage.
