Waterman's patent for the first fountain pen in 1884. Legend says that on his last job while trying to sign an insurance contract with a customer, his fountain pen gave in and leaked all over the contract. Legend says further that, while Waterman searched for a new contract, the customer signed a deal with another agent and Waterman lost a sale. This legend is just that - a legend. But the truth is that in 1883, Waterman improved a fountain pen. He noticed that fountain pens of the time didn’t have any control over the flow of ink which caused leaking of ink. He then started the "Ideal Pen Company" Waterman pens have come a long way! See more on the Waterman Pen site
