TRUTH !!
Historians now lean more and more to the belief that the fountain pen was
invented during the Renaissance by Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519). They base
this on diagrams in his journals of a reservoir pen that works by drawing up
ink and dispersing it by gravity. Further studies reveal that the
handwriting in Leonardo's remaining writings has a uniformity throughout,
without the fading away of the ink that is usually the case with quill pens.
