Ball Point Pens

In the late 19th century, an American tanner needed a better way to mark his leather hides and fashioned a crude ball-tipped pen filled with writer's ink. Unfortunately, the first ballpoint pen needed a coarser surface than paper to work properly and regular ink proved to be too thin. Five decades later, thousands of anxious customers waited outside the doors of Gimbels Department Store in New York to purchase the first commercially-produced ballpoint pen filled with a thicker, faster drying ink similar to that used for printing newspapers. The biggest challenge facing today's consumer comes in selecting the best pen to enhance their unique writing style.
