Dated from the eolithic geological time period, the discovery of ancient hierological symbolic characters made by pimitive cave men when sharp flint-stone implements were used to engrave an image or register a mark, the transitional developement of writing equipment has been progressive over the expanse of time.
From the use of the feather as a quill pen to the first nib made of steel leading to the era of the dip pen, (which was good news for gooses and swans) as a result of improved industrial reforms, increasing population growth rate, awareness of the importance of education and the expanding colonial trade, by the late nineteenth century the demand for writing instruments was flourishing.
A plethora of rivalling fountain pen manufacturers were competitively striving to promote and market their pens.
The boom years of fountain pen production were turbulent and relatively short lived. The next phaze of writing methods started with the introduction of the cheap use and dispose of Biro pen and the typewriting machines, the word processer and so on to the computors that we use today.
However, which is the least troublesome, the least costly and the most reliable of all these writing tools !.... we are able therefore to offer a nice range of reliable sharp flint-stones from the cretaceous, the jurassic, and palaeozoic periods.
