The Waterman name is one of the more recognizable names in fine luxury pens. The famous “Waterman of Paris” pens in their distinctive blue clamshell boxes can be found in high end retailers around the world. Waterman’s claims to fame are many, including the invention of the modern fountain pen and the invention of the modern cartridge pen.

Spurred on by this unfortunate event, Waterman tinkered with pens until he devised the first modern feed that ensured regular blot-free ink flow in pens. He is thus usually credited with inventing the modern fountain pen.
