Asked in Inventions
Why were fountain pens invented?
The first fountain pen was invented in the 10th century because an Egyptian calif, Ma'ād al-Mu'izz, was tired of having his hand get stained by dip pens and asked some unnamed inventor to do something about it. Later, other fountain pens were invented by other people. The reason, to avoid mess, remained the same. There is a link below to the history section of an article on fountain pens.
