Why does the president use multiple pens to sign a law?

The pens become famous given that they were used by the President to sign an important piece of legislation into law. He gives them to people instrumental in getting the bill introduced in Congress and/or those who had other connections to the law. Some of those pens might make their way into a museum or presidential library.
