Fountain Pen

Something to write with.

Lewis Edson Waterman founded his company in New York in 1883 with the invention of a new feeder. He used the capillarity principle which allowed air to induce a steady and even flow of ink. He worked on his invention for ten years before placing it on the market.[1]Waterman got a patent for his new fountain pens in 1884.[2]

Waterman began selling his fountain pens behind a cigar shop and gave his pens a five year guarantee. He opened a factory in Montreal, Canada in 1899, offering a variety of design.

Years following its invention the pen saw many technological changes. Celluloid replaced the hard rubber. This allowed companies to use different colors.
