USING FOUNTAIN PENS
Fountain pen writing is a unique experience. Vintage pens use liquid ink and split metal fountain pen tips or
Nibs. The ink is stored internally in antique pens either in a rubber ink sack, ink converter or in later collectible pen models,
a plastic ink cartridge. The liquid ink flows through a grooved section to the fountain pen nib. The free flowing ink results in a
smooth writing experience that cannot be duplicated with ball point pens or pencils.

HISTORY- Eversharp was started in 1913 by Charles Rood Keeran. He was granted his first patent in 1915 for the Eversharp pencil. The first production run was sub contracted to a New Jersy Company, Heath. Heath was an established supplier of metal componants to the writing equipment industry. These pencils were sucessfully test marketed at Wanamakers Department store in New York City. Keeran then moved his operation to Chicago Illinois where he contracted with the Wahl Adding Machine Company to manufacture Eversharp pencils. In 1916 Eversharp was purchased by Wahl. With over 12 million sold by 1921 the Eversharp pencil was a huge success. In 1917 Wahl offered it's first fountain pen becoming one of the leading manufacturers of both pencils and pens.The company was re-named Wahl-Eversharp in the 1920s producing high quality fountain pens and mechanical pencils. The company remained a major player through the 1940's when the name was shortened to Eversharp dropping the Wahl name. Sales declined in the 1950s and Eversharp was purchased by the Parker Pen Company in 1957. The Eversharp name was retained and used on an economy line of pens and pencils produced by Parker.
